Embedding Elucidat Content into an E-Learning Course

In order to embed content, you have to access your LMS as an Elucidat Administrator or Author. Please remember that Elucidat courses will be embedded into your LMS as learning objects. Begin by accessing the CLOR, or accessing the training materials page for a course in which you want to upload this type of content. Once you’re on the training materials page, press the Add Training Materials button, then select Elucidat from the dropdown menu.
