Editable eLearning integrates with LMS

31 May 2017

EssentialSkillz, a global leader in online safety training and compliance software, has launched a new product to allow seamless editing of eLearning courses without the need to re-upload to a client's LMS (Learning Management System).

CourseLink enables clients to host off-the-shelf training from the EssentialSkillz training library in their own LMS and edit the courses, pulling through the changes to the course hosted on their LMS – without any further uploads of files.

This removes the headache of creating, editing, exporting and uploading files, helping Learning and Development professionals easily maintain content on their LMS. 

Using CourseLink, clients are only required to upload the course files to their LMS once. EssentialSkillz then provides them with access to their eLearning Authoring tool, O-LAS Author, to edit the courses. 

Once the client republishes the course in O-LAS Author, the changes are automatically reflected in the course hosted on their LMS. O-LAS Author also creates a complete version history of changes made to the course, including archiving previous versions of the course for future reference.

Julian Roberts, CEO of EssentialSkillz, said: “The benefits to clients using off-the-shelf content with CourseLink and O-LAS Author are significant. We have over 40 courses covering Health & Safety and Business Protection that can now all be edited and re-edited with complete version tracking. 

“The changes are reflected in the client’s LMS without the need to re-upload any files – everything is controlled through CourseLink. They can even create their own courses and update them using the same tool.

“This new tool resolves the issue of having to compromise by taking off-the-shelf content that isn’t relevant to your workforce. Now you can edit the content and re-publish into your own LMS on demand. It also takes away the issue of having to export, upload and test courses in your LMS – this could be a game changer for many companies.”
