Duration Time Calculations
The module, course, and total training duration times in the trainee's results. Reporting is calculated in Learn as follows:
Module Duration Time =
Module Completion Timestamp - Module Start Timestamp
Course Duration =
Summation of All Module Durations within the course
Total Training Duration =
Summation of all Course Durations within the account

Limitations to the Duration Time Calculations
If a trainee starts a module but stops before finishing it and doesn't log out of their account, Learn does not know that they took a break - the system continues to calculate the course duration. Therefore, this trainee may show an inflated module duration.
There is a cap on the duration of twenty-four (24) days. If a trainee's module is more than twenty-four days, the duration will appear in the UI as 596:31:23.
That being said, courses with extensive modules are more likely to be impacted. We recommend having smaller modules within your courses to better align with learning and developing best practices.
