LearnUpon and Degreed: LMS+LXP in brief
LearnUpon is a learning management system (LMS), which lets you upload and publish online courses. You can build courses in LearnUpon’s interface, or upload interactive SCORM or xAPI modules from your favourite course authoring software.
Managers can enroll individuals and groups onto required courses for compliance, and keep track of their progress. You can also set up your portal to let learners enroll themselves for self-driven training.
Degreed is a learning experience platform (LXP). It provides a personalised, social, online learning experience for learners, typically employees at large enterprises. It brings lots of learning resources, formal and informal, into a single portal. It also provides extensive reporting features, to generate reports for managers, and insights and recommendations for learners.
Together, LearnUpon and Degreed work together to provide enterprise customers with a single learning experience:
- through their Degreed login, learners can access courses from across Degreed’s sources including LearnUpon
- learners can link their career goals to Degreed learning plans
- learners get personal lifelong learning profiles, to support them as they develop their skills
- instructors can set up and run courses in LearnUpon that learners can access through Degreed
- managers can enroll learners in required courses, track compliance and report on learners' progress using LearnUpon’s course records
- LearnUpon and Degreed synchronize their records automatically, and can draw on other software like HRIS systems for creating and managing learner accounts
For most customers, you set up the 2 systems so learners access all their content through Degreed. For some customer scenarios, you can give learners the option of using the LearnUpon portal directly.
LearnUpon and Degreed integration: overview
Degreed and LearnUpon work together through 4 integration points:
- SAML SSO connects the platforms. Learners log in once in Degreed, and can access both Degreed and LearnUpon without logging in again when changing platforms
- a Catalog integration means LearnUpon courses appear in Degreed. The searchable catalog is the means for learners to enroll themselves in self-directed learning
- a Required Learning integration supports mandatory courses assigned to learners. Admins and managers can enroll learners onto required courses hosted in LearnUpon, and use LearnUpon to keep track of learner progress. Courses can include automatic reminders to encourage learners to start, continue and complete their coursework
- a Completion integration using LearnUpon’s webhooks synchronizes completed courses in LearnUpon and Degreed for reports. When a learner finishes a course, LearnUpon sends a webhook to the “listening” Degreed server, and Degreed updates the person’s learning history within minutes
These integration points require setup in both LearnUpon and Degreed.
