Implementing OCN with SAP SuccessFactors LMS

User Assistance Documentation on SAP Help Portal

This KBA describes how to access the User Assistance Documentation on Open Content Network (OCN) Implementation topics so that you can take advantage of online content that is hosted at a third party learning vendor:

  • If you want to track your users' online learning but do not want to create or import the content, you can sign up with an Open Content Network (OCN) provider and implement the connection between SAP SuccessFactors Learning and the provider
  • The provider hosts the content and manages the content. SAP SuccessFactors Learning tracks your users' completion of the content
  • Learning administrators select the content that they want to track and then assign that content like any other learning item in SAP SuccessFactors Learning

Reproducing the Issue

What is OCN?

Open Content Network (OCN) is a group of Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) partners who can provide content to SAP SuccessFactors Learning.

How LMS utilizes OCN:

  • SAP SuccessFactors Learning created Open Content Network (OCN) to partner with Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) providers so that your employees can easily access their content from within your system
  • Employees can still take a MOOC with one of our providers outside the Learning Management System (LMS), but when you bring their courses into the LMS:
    1. you make it available for assignment
    2. add it to catalogs
    3. bundle it into a curriculum or program
    4. or make it a part of your company's social learning through recommendations

See the links in the Resolution section for links to our User Assistance Documentation on the SAP Help Portal for information on implementing OCN in the LMS.
