The course record importer may be used to enroll a list of user records into a course. Records can include course completions or enrollments or both and are uploaded as a CSV file.
Records are matched to users by email address. Records can be imported both for users with and without accounts in EthosCE.
If a file of records is imported with the “assign records immediately” option enabled and a user with a matching email address is found, the records will immediately be processed resulting in either an enrollment or completion. If the record is a completion record it will display on the learner’s transcript immediately.
If a file of records is imported with the “assign records immediately” option disabled, the records will not be processed immediately, but only processed when a user with a matching email creates an account or logs into the system.
Regardless of when the processing happens, if a record is imported and no matching user account is found, the records would be placed into a holding table until a learner with a matching email address creates an account. At the time the learner creates the account, the imported record pertaining to the matched learner would then be assigned to the learner.
Enrollment records require only an email address.
