The benefits of using content connectors
Give your users instant access to content
Content connectors make it easy to search and discover content available within the connected libraries and marketplaces. LMS administrators will love all the content resources at their fingertips. Learners using your LXP have instant access to all the training content they need, exactly when they need it.
Save time on custom integration work
We’ve taken care of the heavy lifting. This integration doesn’t require any custom work for individual content libraries, so you’ve got more time to focus on what’s important: delivering even more valuable content right to your learners.
Integrated content already works with Engine
Using a single API for your application, the third-party content is integrated into Engine’s import, launch, and results tracking APIs, so all of the connected third-party content plays well with all of Engine’s features and your learning application.
Enable more efficient and flexible content management
The search and discovery tools also reduce the amount of work required on your end to support large content libraries. This also makes it easy for learners to explore searchable training content via course marketplaces within the LMS or LXP instead of being limited to what’s been imported.
How do content connectors work?
A new API was added to Rustici Engine 2019.1 to retrieve lists of content from third-party services. Taking it one step further, we extended Engine’s import API to support importing content directly from those services. Content connectors combines both of these new features into a single API that lets you search across content libraries and import, play, and track that content in Rustici Engine.
How do I get started?
In order to make use of the new content connector functionality, you will have to purchase a connector for each third-party service that you want access to.
