Subject - Add/Edit

Subjects can be added or edited on the Subject Management page. Subjects can only be deleted if they are not associated to a learning object.

Note: For portals with multiple languages, all subjects that are not translated into a user's display language are visible to the user in the subject's default language. It is a recommended best practice to create each subject in one default language, and then translate the subject into the other available languages in your portal. This ensures that a subject available in a user's display language appears for the user in their language.

To access the Subject Management page, go to Admin > Tools > Learning > Catalog Management > Subjects.

Add a New Subject

To add a new subject:

  1. Click the Add A New Subject link.
  2. Enter the following information:
    • Subject Title - Enter a title. If multiple subjects are available for the portal, click the Translate icon to localize the subject title to other available languages.
    • Parent Subject - To make the subject a child subject, click the drop-down and select the parent subject from the list. Otherwise, keep the default setting of "None."
    • Default Language - This is a read-only field that displays the subject's default language. The default language is the subject creator's display language, as defined on their user record. Once a subject is saved, the default language does not change, even if the subject creator's default language changes.
    • Equivalent Subject - To add equivalent subjects, click the Add Subject link. This opens the Find Subject pop-up. Select an equivalent subject. The Find Subject pop-up closes, and the subject displays under the Add Subject link. Click Add Subject to add more equivalent subjects. Note: Equivalent subjects are pulled from your existing subjects; they cannot be created within the Equivalent Subject function.
  3. Click Save.
