  3. Keyword - Enter keywords associated with the curriculum. These keywords are used to search for curriculum. The character limit for this field is 1000 characters. For example, if the keyword "new hire" is entered, when users type "new hire" into Global Search, this curriculum will display in the search results.If multiple languages are enabled for your portal, select the Translate icon to translate the field into other available languages.
  4. Description - Enter a description which displays under the Training Details. This field accepts HTML and has a character limit of 5,000 for the HTML results of the Design tab (5,000 standard ASCII characters). If multiple languages are enabled for your portal, select the Translate icon to translate the field into other available languages.
  5. Available Languages - From the drop-down list, select the languages in which the training is available. The available languages are mainly used for searching purposes and they are independent of the training item's default language. At least one language must be selected. At the top of the drop-down list, all selected languages are displayed. The drop-down list only displays the languages that are available to the user. Select the All Languages option to select all available languages.
    • When a language is selected, the training is associated with that language and users can search for the course by associated languages.
  6. Default Language - This displays the default language of the training item. If a user views training in a language that does not have a translation, the information is displayed in the default language for the training. When an administrator creates training, the default language for it is the administrator's default language at the time they create the training.
  7. Vendor - Select a vendor from the list.
  8. Owner - Select an owner from list. An administrator with permission to manage curricula can view and edit all curricula in the system. A curriculum owner can only view and edit curricula for which they are an owner. A curriculum must have at least one owner.
  9. Subject - Add a subject under which the curriculum will be categorized and displayed in Browse for Training and Learning Search. This field is required. If the selected subject is a child subject, the entire hierarchy displays.
  10. Curriculum Player - Select this option to activate the curriculum player for this curriculum if available. This option is only available if you have permission to manage Curriculum Player options.
  11. Hide Overall and Section Progress - This option is only available when the Curriculum Player option is selected. When this option is selected, the progress bars that display the overall curriculum progress and section progress are hidden within the Curriculum Player. This option is unchecked by default.
  12. Required Training Approvals - Enter the number of manager or approver approvals that are required for users who request this curriculum. For example, if this is set to 3, three managers or approvers must approve before the user can take the curriculum. If this is left blank, the system checks the user record for the required number of training approvals. This field may not appear, depending on the system configuration.
  13. Required Completion Approvals - Enter the number of manager or approver approvals that are required for users before the user's curriculum is marked complete on the Transcript. For example, if this is set to three, three managers or approvers must approve before the curriculum is marked complete. If this is left blank, the curriculum does not require completion approval. The normal approval chain for the organization applies. This field may not appear, depending on the system configuration.
  14. Prerequisites - See Curriculum - Create - Step 1 - General - Prerequisites.
  15. Click Next to proceed to the Availability section. See Curriculum - Create - Step 2 - Availability.
