Navigation:  Courses and Learning Paths - The LMS Library >


Any resource added to the LMS that a user can access or enroll in is considered a Course. This includes:


Instructor-led training




Links to web pages, etc.

Before adding Courses, it is useful to set up and define Course Type Defaults. Details describing each Course Type and steps to add each Course Type is discussed in the Adding Courses to the Library topic. This will allow you to add information consistently and quickly.

Each Course Type is identified to users in the Library by assigning Course Deliveries that will be easily recognizable to users (i.e., Events, eLearning Courses, Learning Paths, etc.). Each Delivery can have a graphic “icon” applied to represent how the Course will be presented. Each Delivery also has associated Sub-deliveries to further define the Course. For example, the Sub-deliveries for Scheduled Events might include:




One-on-One, etc.

When searching for Courses, users can filter their search by selecting the Delivery and Sub-delivery options.

For Administrators, Vendors can be associated with Courses. Assigning Vendors to purchased courses allows you to run usage reports to determine end-user engagement and ROI of your purchases. Adding your firm as a vendor may also provide valuable data for the Courses and resources you have curated for your users. Users will not see or be able to search for Courses from vendors.

With this in mind, when preparing to add Courses to the Library, it is important to take the time to review and customize components used to efficiently define the Course Types by performing the following tasks:

Set Course Type Defaults

Review and set Course Deliveries

Review and set Course Sub-Deliveries

OPTIONAL:  Add Vendors

Associate Deliveries and Sub-Deliveries to Course Types
