  • 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 group Catalogs and Libraries.
  • View 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 on 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 “” 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 CET/CEST.

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.

Authors can add synchronized OpenSesame courses to paths, and coaches and administrators can add synchronized courses to other Catalogs and Libraries, like any other 360Learning course.

Learners who click START on the course homepage are redirected to OpenSesame, where they can play the course if they have the required permissions.

If the synchronized course is part of a path session in the 360Learning platform, launching the course in OpenSesame will instantly allow the learner to start the next block, regardless of the results of the course in OpenSesame.

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.
