Install Skillsoft Course Manager

You only have to install the Skillsoft Course Manager (SCM) once; however, you must download content for each course you want to take offline.

Although you can use a modem to download the SCM and content, SkillSsft recommends the use of a faster network connection when available.

To install SCM

  1. Log in to Skillport.
  2. Browse the catalog or use SEARCH&LEARN to locate the course that you want to download.
  3. Move your mouse over the title of the asset, and click the Show Details link that appears.
  4. Click Icon for course download, and then click OK in the dialog that appears in order to begin installation of SCM.
  5. In the Language list, select a language for the SCM, and click Install.
  6. On the Download SkillSoft Course Manager page, do the following:
    1. Click Show License, read the license agreement that appears in a separate window, and then select the check box to indicate your agreement to its terms.
    2. Specify the installation options:

      Install All Content Players: If you select this option, you will not have to download a course-specific player when you download course content later.

      Install Help Files: Downloads the SCM Help documentation.

      Install and enable Accessibility support: Installs and enables section 508 support. If you select this option, the ability to select lessons and topics in courses is disabled.

  7. Click Continue to begin the installation.

    Note: There may be a slight delay while the installation application downloads. The installation time depends on your network speed and the options that you specified.

  8. When the installation is complete, click OK in the pop-up notification window.
  9. Close and reopen your browser.
  10. Log back in to Skillport or your LMS site.

    The SCM initializes itself.

  11. Navigate again to the course that you want to download, and download the course.
