Edge Import - Learning Loads and Feeds - Overview

The Learning load type supports maintaining ILT, Online Course, Materials, Curricula, External Training, Video, Tests, Equivalencies, Subjects, and Custom Field data. The available load types are listed in the Supported Load Types section.

Each learning load type has its own required fields and optional fields. Review the latest template guide before initiating a new learning load.

Acceptable Values and Codes

To determine what values are accepted for each field or to view a list of specific codes (e.g., country codes, time zone codes), refer to the latest template guide, which can be downloaded from the Edge Import Homepage.

Culture

By default, the language selected in the What culture should be used as a default configuration option is used for fields that require culture to insert and update the data in the system. This is relevant for all localized fields.

For example, if a portal's default language is English (US), and the Edge Import configuration's culture is set to German, all fields that require a culture in order to be inserted or updated are updated with the German translation if it is not provided in English (US).

When downloading a template guide for a translation load, the template guide shows only fields that are relevant for the translation load.
