Integrate with OpenSesame

  • Updated

Who can use this feature?

  • This feature requires the OpenSesame Integration. Contact your Account Manager for more information.
  • Platform Admins can activate the integration once it’s been enabled by their Solution Architects.
  • Courses are accessible on Mobile and Web Applications.
  • Stats are accessible on the Web Application.

Synchronize courses and learning statistics from OpenSesame to 360Learning. This integration allows you to:

  • Search for OpenSesame courses in 360Learning.
  • Add OpenSesame courses to paths.
  • Add OpenSesame courses to groups' catalogs and libraries.
  • View the learning statistics on OpenSesame courses in 360Learning.

💡As part of the integration setup, there will also be an SSO SAML configured between OpenSesame and your 360Learning platform.

Set up the integration

There are a few items you need to complete before you can start setting up the integration in 360Learning.

Step 1: Gather prerequisites

First, you need to request the following items from OpenSesame:

Step 2: Contact 360Learning

After you have access to OpenSesame’s API and your credentials, email either your 360Learning Client Success Partner or Solution Architect with the following information:

  • Integration Name: OpenSesame
  • OpenSesame Customer Integration ID: customer_integration_id
  • 360Learning Group ID: The OpenSesame courses will be added to the catalog of that group. If you choose the platform group, all users in public groups will see the content in their catalog. You may want to create a private group for this synchronization (Find the ID of a group).
  • 360Learning Connector Admin Email: The email of a user with author or administrator permissions on the group, who will become the author of the courses in 360Learning.

Step 3: Activate the integration in 360Learning

Once the backend setup is done, activate the integration in 360Learning:

  1. In the left sidebar, click the group that courses will synchronize to.
    • If you’ve previously activated then deactivated the OpenSesame integration, make sure to reactivate it in the same group as the initial activation. Otherwise, this will create duplicate courses.
  2. At the top right of the main section, click settings.svg Settings.
  3. In the left sidebar, click plug-socket.svg IntegrationsOpenSesame
  4. Enter the OpenSesame Customer Integration ID.
  5. At the bottom right, click Setup Integration. The platform should take a few minutes to complete the setup.
  6. Click Continue.

Courses will appear in the catalog the following day.

Step 4: Send xAPI information to OpenSesame

The statistics synchronization relies on xAPI reporting, so there is some information you need to send to OpenSesame once you’ve activated the integration in 360Learning:

⚠️ Replace “app.360learning.com” with your platform’s URL.

To find the Client ID and Client Secret values:

  1. In the left sidebar, click the group where the connector is active.
  2. At the top right, click settings.svg Settings.
  3. In the left sidebar, click plug-socket.svg IntegrationsOpenSesame.
  4. In the Webhook credentials section, copy the Client ID and Client secret fields.

Synchronized OpenSesame courses

Courses synchronize daily from OpenSesame to 360Learning at 6:50 AM Central European Time (UTC + 1).

Synchronized OpenSesame courses are added to catalog of the group where the integration is activated. These courses can’t be edited from the 360Learning platform.

If you activate the OpenSesame integration after benefitting from the Jumpstart Content offer, the SCORM courses from the Jumpstart Content offer remain in the catalog of the platform group. Contact your Customer Success Partner (CSP) if you wish to delete them.

Coaches and admins can add synchronize courses to their group catalog and library.

Authors can add synchronized OpenSesame courses to paths if they are made available in their group's library.

When a learner clicks START on the course homepage in 360Learning:

  • They are redirected to the OpenSesame platform, where they can play the course if they have the required permissions. They must use the same email in both platforms.
  • If the learner leaves the course without finishing it, they can click RESUME in 360Learning to continue the course in OpenSesame.
  • In the learner's homepage in 360Learning, the course (or the path including the course) is moved to the Ongoing section, under My work.
  • In the 360Learning statistics, the course progress is set to 50%.
  • If the course is part of a path with a linear progression, the learner must complete the course in OpenSesame before starting the next step in 360Learning.
  • If the course is the last step to be completed in a path, the learner must finish the course in OpenSesame to successfully complete the path in 360Learning.

When the learner completes the course in OpenSesame:

  • In 360Learning, the course is marked as Completed in 360Learning in almost real time. The learner may need to refresh the page after a few minutes to see the updated completion status.
    • If the course is not part of a path, the course is moved to the Completed section in the learner's homepage.
  • The course statistics in 360Learning are updated in almost real time:
    • The progress is set to 100%
    • The timestamp of completion and the score (if any) are updated.
  • If the course is part of a path with a linear progression, the learner can play the next course after the next statistics synchronization. The learner may need to refresh the page after a few minutes to continue the path.
  • If the course is the last step to be completed in a path, the learner may need to refresh the page after a few minutes to successfully complete the path.
    • In the learner's homepage, the path is then moved to the Completed section.

Synchronized OpenSesame statistics

Statistics synchronize from OpenSesame to 360Learning in real time.

Real-time data synchronization involves a slight delay, typically in seconds or minutes, depending on network latency and processing constraints. Users may need to refresh the page after a few minutes to see the updated statistics.

The time spent and the last activity columns only show data for courses that are played after the integration is set up.

Deactivate the integration

Deactivating the integration will stop the synchronization, and all courses will be archived. You will keep all the learning data that was already synchronized.

  1. In the left sidebar, click the group where the connector is active.
  2. At the top right of the main section, click settings.svg Settings.
  3. In the left sidebar, click plug-socket.svg IntegrationsOpenSesame.
  4. At the bottom right, click Deactivate.

We recommend keeping track of any deactivation, to make sure any reactivation happens on the same group.
