Bespoke tests and eLearning can be created using third party software and uploaded by an Administrator into ATLAS Cloud.
Please note that this does not apply to any tests or eLearning that are created for awarding body qualifications such as BCS/ICDL. The content is available on ATLAS Cloud once it has been purchased via the awarding body.
For any non-awarding body content, the content must be created outside of ATLAS Cloud in a specific compatible format called SCORM that is able to be uploaded.
Creating the Content File
To create the content, the file must be SCORM compatible. A zip file is created from the authoring tool and then able to be uploaded.
Uploading into ATLAS Cloud
To upload the content into ATLAS Cloud the Administrator must have the correct permissions. The additional role of Test Manager must be assigned in the Roles tab against the Administrator's profile. Please see Access Rights section for more details. Once the correct permissions have been enabled, the following steps should be followed:
