Within the Accord LMS, the various forms of learning content are referred to as being Learning Elements.

For help documentation providing more information as it relates to Learning Elements, please see; Learning Elements - Introduction.

Purpose of Importing Learning Elements

The Learning Element Import Feature facilitates quick creation of multiple Learning Elements within your LMS Learning Catalog during one-single process.

This saves time from having to create numerous Learning Elements in the Catalog one-by-one.

What is Needed to Import Learning Elements?

The Learning Element Import process begins by setting up any Learning Elements desired for import in a (.csv) file which can then be readily uploaded into your Accord LMS portal.

Important comments regarding any (.csv) files used for import;

The (.csv) file is processed from the top down. 

Any Parent Catalog Folders being used to receive any Learning Elements during the import process must either already exist within the system or be specifically listed in the (.csv) file. 

Duplicate Learning Element Names will not import. 

Errors will result if the same Learning Element Name already exists within the Learning Catalog, or if duplicated within the (.csv) file being imported.

 Sample File

To obtain a sample Learning Element Import .csv file please link to; Import Samples.
