Docebo can integrate with the Elucidat (opens in a new tab) authoring tool, allowing you to play your Elucidat content inside of Docebo’s E-learning courses while managing different releases, keeping the course updated with the latest version of your content.
Elucidat allows you to create both online (Tin Can) and offline (SCORM) content. The Elucidat integration with Docebo is available for online content only. However, offline SCORM packages can be manually exported and imported into Docebo (without taking advantage of the integration) by following the SCORM guidelines.
Please Note! If you want to distribute the same Elucidat content to more than one platform, we strongly suggest you to duplicate the content and upload a copy of the content in every platform in order to avoid tracking problems. We strongly suggest that you do not upload the same content to all of your platforms.
Activating the Elucidat App in Docebo
Activate the Elucidat app as described in the Managing Apps & Features article of the Knowledge Base. The app is listed in the Third Party Integrations tab.
Creating a Docebo App in Elucidat
As a first step, you need to create an app for your platform in Elucidat. Log in to Elucidat, then click the account icon in the top right corner, and select API Access from the dropdown menu.
Now, click on the Project API (v2) button on this page.
On the next page, scroll to the bottom of the page. In the Add an Application area, insert a name for your application and press the Add Application button.
Your application will now be visible in the list immediately above the Add an Application section. Here you can find your application name as well as your private and public keys for API access.
Copy and paste the public and private keys into a text editor, such as Notepad, for use in the Configuring Elucidat in Docebo chapter.
Configuring Elucidat in Docebo
Once you have created a Docebo app in Elucidat, you have all the details for configuring the integration in Docebo. Log in to Docebo as Superadmin and access the Admin Menu from the gear icon. Then, find the Elucidat section, and press the Manage item. On the Elucidat configuration page, add your public key to the Public Key textbox and your private key to the API Secret text box. Next, press Save Changes.
You can now start adding content to your platform. Please refer to the section Embedding Elucidat Content into an E-learning Course to learn more.
You can reset your Elucidat configuration at any time by clicking on Reset Configuration. When resetting the configuration, both the public and private keys are deleted and you will no longer be able to take advantage of the integration till you enter some valid values again.
Embedding Elucidat Content into an E-learning Course
In order to embed Elucidat content in an E-learning course, access the Admin Menu from the gear icon, then select the Course Management item in the E-learning section. On the main Courses Management list, click on the description of the course in which you would like to upload Elucidat content, then move to the Training Material tab.
In order to upload Elucidat content, press the Add Training Material button, and select the Elucidat option from the dropdown menu.
Now, decide if you want to create a new project or embed an existing one. Please note that, in order to create a new project, you must be an Elucidat author. Press Create Course to create a new project. You will be redirected to Elucidat, where you can create a new project. Select the Add a Project button and start creating your content. You can refer to Elucidat’s support area (opens in a new tab) for more information. Once you’ve completed your project, you can embed the new project into your Docebo course.
In order to embed an existing project, press the Select Course option from the Elucidat training material page and select the project you want to embed, along with its release (the release field only appears if the selected project has more than one release).
Please Note! Releases must be set as online in order for you to have the ability to select them for your Docebo courses. Docebo does not support automatically retrieving the latest version of the package, it must be manually selected from the drop-down list.
Finally, add a title and a description, then choose the viewing mode and press Save Changes.
As an option, you can upload Elucidat content into the Central Repository, and then import it to courses. To grant content integrity, when importing Elucidat training material in courses from the Central Repository, you cannot edit its content except for the title and the description.
Please Note! In order for the Single Sign On functionality to work, when you are creating Elucidat training material, you must be logged into your Docebo platform as a user that has the same email address as an Admin or an author in Elucidat.
Finally, please consider that the auto-tagging feature is not supported for Elucidat content. Discover the complete list of all supported file types for auto-tagging.
