Courses can consist of e-learning content such as SCORM files, converted PPTs or videos, as well as other activities such as classroom sessions, checklists, assignments, pre-test and exam. If you would just like to add a record for a course taken outside of Trainingportal this can be uploaded in the system as well.

To create a new course navigate to the Courses tab, and select the create course option. You will then be taken through a create course wizard. You can choose to go through the steps, or click save and quit to create a course shell and then add information and content later.
