Course Catalog - Online Content

The online content training type displays on the Course Catalog page for third party online content delivered through a subscription but hosted on the provider's servers. Note: Currently the online content training type is only available for clients who have purchased subscriptions such as Content Anytime, or content integrations, such as Skillsoft Percipio, Coursera for Business, or edX for Business.

To access the Course Catalog, go to Admin > Tools > Learning > Catalog Management > Course Catalog. Search for a learning object (LO) and click the Options drop-down for the item. Then click the Edit option to be navigated to the Course Catalog - General page for that LO.

Course Catalog - Online Content Training Type

If the Course Catalog page is accessed for a third party content item delivered through a subscription, Online Content displays as the training type for the item. If the training item is online content, a message displays at the top of the Course Catalog page stating, "This is external content that may be updated via automatic synchronization. Manual changes made on this screen may be overwritten." Manual changes made to the following Course Catalog fields may be overridden by automatic synchronization:

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

Note: The Active checkbox is disabled for online content and any online courses delivered via a content integration or subscription. Administrators cannot activate content which was deactivated by the provider or deactivate content which the provider has activated.

Note: There is no Available Offline checkbox for online content, as externally-hosted content requires an active connection to run.
