Import Go1 courses into LMS365

Required role: course catalog admin.

Once the integration between LMS365 and Go1 is set up, you can import Go1 courses into LMS365.

Go1 courses are imported into LMS365 as e-learning courses. Up to 30 Go1 courses can be imported at a time.

1. Go to the LMS365 Admin Center > Training Management > select the drop-down arrow next to Create Training > Import Go1 courses. The Import Go1 courses panel opens.

The opened Import Go1 courses panel displays all Go1 courses. The Title, Duration, and Language columns are displayed.

 

 

NOTE   

If your Go1 account has a Free subscription, only free Go1 courses are displayed on the Import Go1 courses panel.

If your Go1 account has a Paid subscription, all Go1 courses that are available for your subscription plan are displayed on the Import Go1 courses panel.

 

2. You can use the Search field to find a specific Go1 course. The search runs only on the course name (Title) field. Enter part of the course name then press Enter to see a list of Go1 courses that match the given search parameter.

3. You can sort the list of Go1 courses on the Import Go1 courses panel by Title or you can filter them by topic, duration, and tags:

The default view displays all Go1 courses that are available for your subscription plan.

Topics filter – allows filtering by the topics associated with the available Go1 courses. Multiple selections are possible.

Categories are used to help filter training in the catalog and are displayed on the course home page. When importing Go1 courses, topics in Go1 are converted to categories in LMS365. 

From the Topics drop-down, select the relevant topics and select Apply to apply the filter. Select Clear all to clear the applied filter.

Duration filter – allows filtering by the duration of the available Go1 courses: < 15 min, 15-30 min, 30-60 min, or > 60 min. Multiple selections are possible.

From the Duration drop-down, select the relevant duration and select Apply to apply the filter. Select Clear all to clear the applied filter.

Tags filter – allows filtering by the tags associated with the available Go1 courses. Multiple selections are possible.

From the Tags drop-down, select the relevant tags and select Apply to apply the filter. Select Clear all to clear the applied filter.

4. You can select the name of a course to view more information about it. You can import this course from here or import multiple courses from the Import Go1 courses panel.

 

 

5. Select the X icon to close the panel.

6. On the Import Go1 courses panel, select the checkboxes of the Go1 courses you want to import. As mentioned, you can import up to 30 courses at a time. 

7. With the relevant Go1 courses selected, select Import to import the courses or Cancel to cancel the import. You can continue to use LMS365 while courses are being imported as a background task.

 

NOTE   

If you want to import more than 30 courses, repeat steps 6 and 7 until all the relevant courses are imported.

 

The time it takes to import courses depends partly on the number of courses you import. Notifications are displayed in the notifications feed when courses have been imported successfully and when one or more courses fail to import. Select the bell icon on the LMS365 Admin Center toolbar to check notifications.

Imported courses are displayed on the Training Management page, side by side with other courses and training plans. The Status column for an imported Go1 course shows the red cross icon Unpublished_course_icon.png, which means it's unpublished. The Category column displays the categories assigned to the course.

If one or more courses fail to import, view the relevant notification for more information.
