Categories act as containers for learning content items and enable admins to target learning content to specific learners. Once a learning item has been created, you can add categories to your learning item.

Notes:

  • Only admins have permission to create categories.
  • When a category is assigned to a group, all the learning items associated with that category will be visible to group members in the Learning Library.
  • If a learner is individually assigned to a categorized learning item but the learner is not in a group assigned to that category, the learner will see the learning item in the All Others category of the Learning Library.
