OpenSesame to eLearning (Image credit Pixabay/Reinhardi (c) 2017Infor has announced the expansion of its partnership with eLearning provider OpenSesame Inc. This is a renewal and expansion of the partnership formed in 2015. It will enable customers of Infor LMS to gain access to the full OpenSesame elearning catalogue, more than 20,000 courses.

OpenSesame offers a range of eLearning modules covering business skills, safety, compliance, technology and industry specific training (such as banking, healthcare and utilities). It also delivers courses specifically related to certifications.

Customers using Infor LMS will access the eLearning catalogue through the Infor LMS interface, rather direct through the OpenSesame interface. Of the 17,401 courses available on the OpenSesame sites in English, more than 10,000 are mobile ready courses. Infor customers can also take advantage of these courses on mobile devices as part of the partnership.

Tom Turnbull, vice president, Partnerships, OpenSesame commented: “OpenSesame has grown tremendously over the past few years by focusing on our customers’ needs for a broad variety of curated eLearning courses to drive employee development and productivity. Expanding our partnership with Infor will strengthen how we solve talent development gaps for our mutual customers.”

With this agreement the Infor LMS solution continues to give customers access to a wide range of industry courses. Customers using the Infor Learning Management Content Creator can also create and deliver enterprise specific courses to supplement these. Training is becoming increasingly important for talent retention and the renewal of this agreement is important.

Elliot Golden, product manager, Infor commented: “Between the Infor Customer Success team’s combined years of expertise implementing and executing corporate learning and OpenSesame’s curated eLearning course offering, our customers will get the service and results they expect from two closely-aligned strategic partners.”

Late last year Infor also announced that it would integrate to LinkedIn Learning (formerly Linda.com). However there has been no subsequent announcement to indicate that this is now live. We have contacted Infor to ask whether that integration is now complete.

  1. Infor has responded to confirm that the integration with Linkedin Learning is complete. We received the following comment from Elliot Golden, Product Manager, Learning and Performance Management, Infor:
    “Infor Learning Management is an inaugural integration partner with LinkedIn Learning. As part of our partnership, Infor and LinkedIn have completed an API integration. When a customer has purchased both LinkedIn Learning and Infor Learning Management, entitled Admin users have access to LinkedIn Learning’s 10,000+ course library. When they find courses they need, they will import the course information into the Infor product for distribution to individual learners, functional groups, or all users. This partnership and integration gives our customers access to an amazing array of content to augment our already strong corporate learning platform.Any course can be brought in and assigned to an individual, a group, or the entire organization. LinkedIn Learning content is branded and identified for all users, so they know the source.”
