What is Oracle Guided Learning?

Oracle Guided Learning (OGL) is an enterprise cloud learning platform that empowers the creation of guided, personalized, and contextual user onboarding visualizations. OGL is located within a host application as a learning and information interface, offering intelligent tools that help organizations streamline the adoption of web-based applications across their enterprise.

At its core, Oracle Guided Learning utilizes cutting-edge technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), to deliver an adaptive and tailored learning experience for each user. By analyzing user behavior, skill levels, and preferences, the intelligent platform dynamically adjusts its content, delivery approach, and recommendations to optimize engagement and knowledge retention.

Key Features of Oracle Guided Learning

Here’s a look at the main features of the OGL platform for enterprise users:

Process Guides

Oracle Guided Learning enables users to visually walk through each part of a task with step-by-step guidance. For example, users can navigate through the steps of submitting an expense form to ensure the correct fields are completed, and no steps are missed.

Message Groups

The OGL platform allows organizations to invite new users, notify them about upcoming events, and broadcast messages to announce new functions and features. Users can also configure automatic Message Guides that show specific users important information about applications or features for a specific time. An example would be a Message Guide informing users of a new application and a prompt to watch a video for a more in-depth look at key features, capabilities, and use cases.

Display Groups

Users can organize content by process, module area, or any other customized category. Content is organized and presented in display groups across the Oracle Guided Learning widget.

Smart Tips

With OGL, organizations can deliver context-sensitive guidance or additional information, and users can hover over specific text areas to complete labels, buttons, fields, or other UI aspects.


Depending on a user’s current location inside the application and the screen element currently in use, the platform enables the launch of essential OGL objects. For instance, when a user submits a purchase request, they can initiate a message or procedure guide that automatically informs them of policy changes, approval limit adjustments, or compliance requirements.

Task Lists

OGL makes it easier to organize process guides into clear task lists that inform users of what tasks must be completed and in what order. For example, onboarding new users includes the steps to begin the process, forms to be submitted, benefits elections requirements, and more.


Oracle Guided Learning allows clients to filtrate and report on metric information within their Oracle Guided Learning suite, such as reports on the usage of pre-built OGL content and other connected messages from the client. 


Through intelligent hotspots that show the areas of the Oracle landscape with the highest activity, users can gain valuable insights into how they navigate and manage their applications.


Oracle Guided Learning supports comprehensive media guides, Smart Tips, product tour designs, survey guides, and other links to essential training content.

Setting Up An OGL Account

This email will contain instructions on how to log into OGL and sign up for a webinar to kickstart your experience with the platform.
