getAbstract as a Content Provider

Percipio’s open platform capabilities enable a turnkey integration for LinkedIn LearninggetAbstract, a provider of online courses. If your organization licenses LinkedIn LearninggetAbstract and you integrate it with Percipio, you will see the following benefits:

  • One access point for learners to discover and launch all content accessible to them: When you import and curate LinkedIn LearninggetAbstract content into Percipio, learners can access all their content from Percipio. To help provide a seamless experience when learners access LinkedIn LearninggetAbstract content, you can establish single sign-on (SSO) between Percipio and the LinkedIn LearninggetAbstract platform. You can configure single sign-on using Percipio as an IDP model or your own IDP.
  • Automated content import and management: You can import all your purchased/licensed LinkedIn LearninggetAbstract content into Percipio with a weekly automated sync. This automated sync facilitates content life-cycle management regarding content additions, metadata updates, and removals so everything on Percipio is always in parity with the LinkedIn LearninggetAbstract platform. You can view import history to check.
  • Ability to curate content into channels, journeys and assignments: After you make the content available to learners, you can create custom channels and journeys adding both Skillsoft and LinkedIn LearninggetAbstract content for a meaningful experience for your learners.
  • All learning activity tracked and captured in Percipio reports: When learners launch and complete LinkedIn LearninggetAbstract content in Percipio, their activity is automatically captured in Percipio. Although the synchronization happens daily, it can take up to 48 hours to see activity reflected in Percipio reports and on the learner's activity dashboard.
