Program - Create/Edit - Step 1 - General

When creating a program, the General step enables the administrator to configure the general details of the program. These details will be copied to the cohort when a cohort is created for the program.

To create a program, go to Admin > Tools > Learning > Catalog Management > Programs and Cohorts. Then, click the Create New Program link.

OR, go to Admin > Tools > Learning > Learning Admin Console. Then, click the Create button and click the Program link.

Enter the following information for the program:

  • Program Name - Enter a name for the program. This will be the default name for cohorts that are created for the program. This field is required. The character limit is 500.
  • Vendor - Click the Select icon to select a vendor. This will be the default vendor for cohorts that are created for the program. This field is required.
  • Description - Enter a description for the program. This will be the default description for cohorts that are created for the program. This is used to help users get a better understanding of the cohort. This is HTML friendly. This field is required. The character limit is 3500.
  • Available Languages - From this drop-down list, select the language(s) the learning object (LO) is delivered in. In the Training Details, the learner can see the languages in which the training is available. Additionally, the learner can use this field to filter Global Search results in the Refine Search section, if the learner only wants to see LOs delivered in a particular language.
  • Default Language - This displays the default language of the LO. If a user views an LO in a language that does not have a translation, the information is displayed in the default language for the LO. When an administrator creates an LO, the default language for the LO is the administrator's default language at the time they create the LO.
  • Owner(s) - Select an owner for the LO by clicking the Add Owner link. This will be the default owner for cohorts that are created for the program. The cohort owners serve as community moderators for cohort communities associated with the cohorts. The administrator who is creating the LO is listed as the owner by default, but this can be changed. Multiple owners can be selected, and they appear in the order in which they are added. To delete an owner, click the Delete icon to the left of the user's name. At least one owner is required.
  • Subjects - Select the subjects that are associated with the LO by clicking the Add Subject link. Multiple subjects can be selected, and they appear in the order in which they are added. To delete a subject, click the Delete icon to the left of the subject. At least one subject is required.
  • Options - Select the Active checkbox to make the LO active. When active, users can view the program in Course Catalog, Global Search, and Browse for Training. If the LO is inactive, then users cannot access the LO. In addition, when a program is inactive, all associated cohorts are also inactive even if users are enrolled in the cohort.
  • Keywords - Enter words to associate with the LO. When a user searches and enters any of the keywords specified here, the LO will appear in the search results.
