SCORM, PDF, XLS, Word and PPT files can be imported into Learn LMS to share with your learners. In this article we'll explain how.
Note: There is one Course Import Wizard in every Learn site. Therefore, if more than one administrator is uploading content, then the wizard will queue the imports, and upload in sequence. A notification of ‘In Progress’ will appear for an imported Course or Lesson.
Step One: Open the Course import wizard
Navigate to ‘Administration Home’ and select ‘Course’ to view the Course list. Scroll to the end of the page and select ‘Import’:
Step Two: Select a file to import
The Course import Wizard opens. Click ‘Choose file’ and browse your computer to find the PDF or SCORM eLearning file for import. Click ‘Start Upload to proceed to the next stage of the Wizard:
Step Three: Specify Course category and image, and the Lesson duration
The Course Import Wizard will import the PDF/SCORM eLearning to create a Lesson. The wizard will also create a Course and assign the Lesson to the Course – ready for administrators to deploy. Some of the properties of the new Lesson and Course will be defined by the Wizard (Course Code and title, and Lesson code and title). The administrator must populate the remaining fields – Course Category, image and Lesson duration. Click ‘Start course creation’ when ready:
Step Four: Configure or upload more content
Once the content has been imported, the title of the new Course will be displayed. Click the Title to view the Course or click ‘Upload new content’ to import another file. Remember – the Course created automatically by the Wizard can be deleted if you don’t need it:
Don’t need the Course created automatically?
Each time the Course Import Wizard is used, Learn creates a Course and a Lesson. The Lesson is the imported content, and the Course is the description of the content. The assignment between Course and Lesson is made, and the learning is ready to be deployed as required.
In some circumstances, the Course created on import is not required. For example, when importing a PDF to assign to an existing Course or when creating a multi-Lesson eLearning Course. In this scenario, the Course can be deleted (this applies to all Courses imported after September 2018). It is good practice to delete Courses that are not required.
