Importantly, SAP SuccessFactors Learning does not import the content. In fact, we treat MOOC content like any other training content: the Learning Management System (LMS) does not serve the content. Content is served from another server like iContent or the MOOC provider. The LMS of SAP SuccessFactors Learning tracks users' completion of the content but does not serve the content.
ContentSAP SuccessFactors Learning defines Massive Online Open Courses (MOOC) as an entirely online course that seeks massive participation but that might or might not be free of charge.
The only important distinction in MOOC content are the providers that are members of Open Content Network (OCN). To import MOOC content through OCN, your partner must be an approved provider. With an approved provider, we can import the MOOC content predictably and the provider can enable a SAML integration to pass users from SAP SuccessFactors Learning to the MOOC provider through single sign on.
