Using the Results Upload Manager (RUM)
RUM is a tool that allows administrators to upload course results to the LMS/SkillPort. When users complete courses using the SkillSoft Course Manager CD-ROM utility, they export the results to a zip file. This zip file is then given to an administrator, who uploads it to the LMS/SkillPort via RUM. This document describes how to install, configure and use RUM, as well as how to configure the SCM for use with RUM.
Enabling/Disabling the Export button in the SCM
RUM is enabled by default in the SCM CD-ROM. Follow the procedures below to disable the Export button.

Using RUM with the SCM
When RUM is enabled in the SCM, the Export button appears in the SCM Progress Tab. When users click the Export button, they are prompted to specify a location to save the zip file. This zip file contains their course results, and can be emailed or put on floppy disk and sent to their administrator.
Installing and Configuring RUM
To install RUM, run setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. When the installation is complete, open rum.ini using Notepad or a similar text editor. (This file will be located in the directory where you installed RUM.) Then complete the following values:
Once you’ve entered this information, save and close rum.ini. RUM is now properly installed and configured.
You may launch the program by double clicking on its icon, or by going to Start>Programs>SkillSoft>Result Upload Manager. When prompted, enter your SkillPort username and password and click OK.
Note: To run RUM, you must have a SkillPort user ID with administrator privileges.
When a user emails a zip file to you, copy that file to your Results directory. Then:
Once a zip file is submitted, it is moved to Results\Completed. This subdirectory is created automatically the first time a file is posted. You will periodically need to delete the files in this folder to prevent it from taking up too much disk space.
