Integrate Learning Manager with AEM

Learning Manager is Learning Management System with a built-in Learning Content Management System. Users manage their learning content by uploading it to Learning Manager, so that Learning Manager performs the versioning, allocation to courses, defining the visibility to learners , tracking the consumption and reporting back to administrators.

However there are users who store and manage their content on asset management systems. The content then gets repurposed for various other functions.

The various strips present in the learner app can be embedded in the AEM sites. Any learner who signs into the AEM site will see his/her specific training data in these strips.
