Reporting options for LinkedIn Learning integration

LMS365 (Learn365) supports both AICC and xAPI reporting. You can optionally configure xAPI to allow LinkedIn Learning to communicate course completions back to LMS365 (Learn365), regardless of how and where the training content is launched. Learners can launch content from within LMS365 (Learn365) or they can view courses directly in LinkedIn Learning.

To configure xAPI reporting for the LinkedIn Learning integration with LMS365 (Learn365) in your tenant, first you'll need to complete some configuration steps in your Azure admin portal, then you'll need to enable xAPI in your LinkedIn Learning admin portal.

 

Compare the features of xAPI reporting and AICC reporting

The following table provides a comparison of some key features of AICC reporting and xAPI reporting.

   AICC reporting  xAPI reporting
Tracks intermediate progress  No  Yes
Tracks completions for activity started from LMS365 (Learn365)  Yes  Yes
Tracks completions for activity started from LinkedIn Learning  No  Yes

Tracks completions achieved  in LinkedIn Learning prior to course import/retake

 Yes  No

 

AICC reporting

To enable AICC reporting:

1. In the LinkedIn Learning admin portal, select Go to Admin > Me > Integrate.

2. From the left-side navigation menu, select Add content to your LMS via AICC > expand Configure AICC.

3. In the Enter hostname or port field in the Add Hostname(s) section, enter the hostname that relates to the region selected for your tenant. To find this information, go to https://api.365.systems/, scroll down to the Multiregions section, and copy the relevant value from the API End Point column. When you paste or enter this value, don't include the https:// part of the hostname.

4. Select the + icon to add the hostname.

5. Ensure the Enable AICC toggle is set to Enabled.

6. Only version 4.0 of AICC is supported so select 4.0 from the Select an AICC version drop-down in the AICC Version section.

 

xAPI reporting

The following conditions should be met to ensure course progress and completion information can be communicated to LMS365 (Learn365):

Course progress and completion information is sent just once to LMS365 (Learn365). In LinkedIn Learning, learners' original completion information will be maintained to be knowledge.

If the same course is imported several times, course progress will be reported in each instance of the course, as long as the learner is enrolled the relevant course.

If a learner passes a course in LinkedIn Learning, then this course is later imported into LMS365 (Learn365) and the learner is later enrolled in and retakes the course, their course progress won't be reported.

 

Configure the Azure admin portal

This section provides information on the steps you need to complete to configure the Azure admin portal to support xAPI reporting.
