The Content Marketplace is a place within your platform that houses Docebo Content, a library of courses covering a wide range of topics provided by Docebo, as well as content coming from other content service providers: LinkedIn Learning, OpenSesame and Skilla.
While Docebo Content does not require a license and the setup of technical integration, a subscription is needed for external providers. Docebo’s Content Marketplace is a core feature enabled by default in your platform, that cannot be removed. As the Superadmin, you can sync content from Docebo Content and from external publishers in the marketplace to the Central Repository.
It is strictly prohibited to resell content from Docebo Content and from third-party publishers in Docebo. You cannot include content from publishers in Docebo’s Content Marketplace in your Docebo courses or learning plans that are flagged for sale (either via Docebo’s E-Commerce feature or the Shopify integration). Find more information below.
Docebo Content, LinkedIn Learning, OpenSesame, and Skilla are the names of the content providers and cannot be customized in your platform.
In order to grant content integrity, you cannot edit or replace the content of the training material coming from the Content Marketplace in courses and in the Central Repository, except for its title and description.
Navigating the Content Marketplace
To access the marketplace, log into your platform as the Superadmin. Please note that only Superadmins have access to the Content Marketplace. Power Users have no permissions to access or manage the Content Marketplace. Once logged in, access the Admin Menu by pressing the gear item in the top right corner, then press the Content Marketplace button.
On the main marketplace page, you will see all of the publishers from which you can browse, purchase, and sync off-the-shelf content. The Docebo Content library will be the biggest banner on the main Content Marketplace page. To explore the library content, press the Explore the Library button. Learn more about Docebo Content.
Please note that contents from the marketplace are not recommended to be assigned to certifications. Find more information in the Best Practices chapter of the article on the Certifications and Retraining App.
Managing Content from the Marketplace in the Central Repository
If you selected to import content into the platform’s Central Repository, you can manage it directly from there. To access the Central Repository, reach the Admin Menu by pressing the gear item in the top right corner, then press the Central Repository item in the E-Learning section.
Please note that courses from publishers in the Content Marketplace are synced into your platform as training material, which can be pushed to your platform courses. For each training material in the list on the main Central Repository page, you will see a shopping cart icon in the training material's row if it came from a publisher in the Content Marketplace. If you hover your mouse over this icon, the name of the publisher from which you purchased the content will appear just above the icon.
By using the filter dropdown menus at the top of the Central Repository page, you can filter the material that appears in the list by type (SCORM, AICC, video, etc) or by publisher. You should refer to the Central Repository article in the Knowledge Base to learn how to push training material from the Content Marketplace into your courses.
Please Note: Any e-learning training material that is imported from a content service provider will, by default, be imported with the default settings of that content provider. This may include view mode (some content is set to play in fullscreen mode as default).
Managing Docebo Courses with Content from the Marketplace
Once you’ve pushed training material purchased from a publisher from the Central Repository to courses, you can manage the training material advanced settings and the course Training Material tab. Access the main Course Management page in your platform by pressing the gear item in the top right corner of the platform to reach the Admin Menu, then select the Course Management item in the E-Learning section.
Enable the Marketplace column in the Course Management table, to identify the courses including content from a content publisher. Click on the course description and, once in the course area, move to the Training Material page, you will see the shopping cart icon in the training material’s row if it is synced from Docebo Content or from a content publisher. If you hover your mouse over the shopping cart icon, the name of the publisher from which you purchased the content will appear just above the icon.
Like all other training material, you can manage the training material advanced settings for this type of training material. Press the menu icon in the training material’s row, then press the Settings subitem. You can press the Unlink item to remove the training material from the course.
Prohibition of Selling Content from the Content Marketplace
As written in the Legal Notes section of this article, it is strictly prohibited to sell content from Docebo Content and from third-party publishers in Docebo. You cannot include content from publishers in Docebo’s Content Marketplace in your Docebo courses or learning plans that are flagged for sale (either via Docebo’s E-Commerce feature or the Shopify integration).
How does this play out in your platform?
- When you reach the E-Commerce tab of a course’s area, you are not allowed to flag the course for sale. Instead, you will see a message that reads You cannot sell courses containing training material from Docebo Content and from content service providers.
- If you try to add a course with this content into a learning plan that is available for purchase, you will receive an error message.
- If you try to add training material from Docebo Content or from a content publisher into a course for sale by pushing the training material from the Central Repository, you will receive an error message, and the training material will not be pushed into the course until you unflag the option to sell it in the course’s Advanced Settings menu.
