Online Content - Course Console and Course Catalog

Administrators are able to access online content items from both the Course Console and the Course Catalog and can edit certain metadata for these items, BUT any manual changes made to the metadata for online content can be overridden by future automatic synchronizations performed by the third-party content integration.

Course Console - Online Content

When an online content training item is accessed via the Course Console, an alert appears at the top of the page, stating, "This is external content that may be updated via automatic synchronization. Manual changes made on this screen may be overwritten." Also, the Training Type field displays a value of Online Content, and the administrator can edit the following metadata for the online content:

  • Title
  • Training Hours
  • Mobile setting
  • Subjects
  • Available Languages
  • Keywords
  • Description
  • ID
  • Status
  • Created Date
  • Created By
  • Default Language
  • Last Modified Date

Note: The Active/Inactive setting is non-editable via the Course Console. The content must be deactivated by the third-party content provider in order to be deactivated in the system.

Course Catalog - Online Content

When an online content training item is accessed via the Course Catalog, an alert appears at the top of the page, stating, "This is external content that may be updated via automatic synchronization. Manual changes made on this screen may be overwritten." Also, the Type field displays a value of Online Content, and the administrator can edit the following metadata for the online content:

  • Title
  • Version
  • Learning Object ID
  • Keywords
  • Description
  • Thumbnail Image
  • Available Languages
  • Default Language
  • Mobile setting

Note: The Active checkbox is non-editable via the Course Catalog. The content must be deactivated by the third-party content provider in order to be deactivated in the system.
