Synchronize courses from OpenSesame

  • Updated

You can synchronize OpenSesame courses with your 360Learning platform.

Synchronized OpenSesame courses are represented as 360Learning courses (they can be searched, filtered, added to programs, paths, group Catalogs and Libraries), but are played directly on OpenSesame.

1. Prerequisite: enable the OpenSesame connector

Send an email to your CSP or SA, asking for the activation of the OpenSesame connector, with the following 3 items:

  • Integration name: « OpenSesame ».
  • Group ID (see Find the ID of a group). 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.
  • The email of a user with author or administrator permissions on the group, who will become the author of the courses in 360Learning.

2. Synchronize courses

Once you’ve received confirmation that the OpenSesame connector is activated on your platform, you can activate course synchronization.

Synchronized OpenSesame courses are added to a specific group Catalog. They cannot be deleted, nor their title, description or content be edited from the 360Learning platform.

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

Learners who click START in 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 program session in the 360Learning platform, launching the course in OpenSesame will instantly allow the learner to start the next program block, regardless of the results of the course in OpenSesame.
