Add OpenSesame Content to SparkLearn

Learn how to add your OpenSesame courses into SparkLearn and deliver them to your learners

What is OpenSesame?

OpenSesame is an e-learning provider with a comprehensive catalog of courses from the world’s top publishers. Their content covers a wide range of topics such as compliance, DEI, retail, safety, finance, and more. Once your company has set-up OpenSesame configuration, you can sync courses you've purchased from OpenSesame's catalog into SparkLearn.

OpenSesame courses will be brought into SparkLearn as Learning Objects and will be drafts until they are given a Topic and published. They can also be added to existing SparkLearn Courses.

Note: OpenSesame content is not included in your purchase of SparkLearn and a separate OpenSesame account is required for configuration. Learn more.
