MyLearning is a free, smartphone-based app provided by the SSSC to help you quickly and conveniently log learning activities wherever and whenever they take place.

MyLearning allows you to:

• set yourself learning targets and view your progress towards them
• record learning logs in your MyLearning journal
• tag your learning logs so you can easily find them later, to help develop your thinking and reflections
• use your learning logs as evidence towards Open Badges
• share your learning logs with others, such as your manager or a potential employer.

What’s New

Now you are able to add target hours freely by tapping on the hours label. We've also fixed the text being cut when adding more than 99 hours

Easy to use but does not calculate/tally the hours required

This app is easy to record your CPL however, the total accumulated hours should be visible on the main page . It tells you how many logs but not how many hours ..
Also if you try to log something in the previous year’s date it doesn’t allow you to type the correct date. Might be a technical error and needs testing.
Other than that it’s good way for keeping a record of your learning journey up to date.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. We hope you try the latest version of the app which incorporates an accumulated hours meter on the dashboard.


Poor excuse for an application, too many bugs and issues

Doesn’t work with iPadOS password manager.

Does not like special characters (- or &) in title of journal entry.

Start date is incorrect and must be defined as one day AFTER the actual start date you want/need.

It does not allow you to have a end date that is the same as the start date I.e. if you start in the 6th, it will force you to enter the 7th as the end date.

Taking pictures is frustrating, assuming the direction of the camera making left/right/up/down impossible to match up with reality. Once you take a picture you cannot remove (no remove option) or if you reject the picture when it prompts you to accept it then it will not allow you to take a follow on picture without going back to the entry and starting again.

Pictures are not in focus. Pictures taken from the standard iPad OS Camera app are in focus.

Should be able to link multiple pictures to an entry (not just as a header picture).

You get locked into the SETTINGS window once you enter it with no way out.

The app keeps crashing every time you save something (on iPadOS13.4) and is doing this on two different iPads so not unique to one iPad

Very disappointed

Have given up on this app. It looked great and would be if it would only work. Won’t accept hours claimed in logs. Tried cutting and pasting in a reflective account from iPad notes - it went in then after saving everything disappeared. So back to square one. Tried several attempts. Now given up. Very disappointed since it would have been a great wee app to record things. What was the point of it in the first place if no use?
