Some providers have expressed an interest in being able to
import their course information to the national learning
opportunities database (NLOD) in bulk.
For colleges, universities and other providers offering a large
number of courses we have developed a bulk import facility. This
should save you a significant amount of time, especially if
your course information is already held in one place.
The solution uses XCRI, the industry standard format for
exchanging course related information. Some learning providers
already hold course information in the XCRI format in order to
exchange details with other organisations.
Once your information is imported to the NLOD, you can edit and
manage individual courses and opportunities using PROMT if
Bulk import to the NLOD is an option for your organisation
To get started, download the
schema for your technical team to work with. You can also
download an annotated version if you prefer - both
versions can be opened as text files.
To find out more about holding and transferring your course
information using XCRI, please visit the XCRI wiki and website or
direct your technical contact to it.
If you have further questions about the bulk upload facility,
please contact the information services team by emailing email@example.com.
