Evolve is an intuitive content authoring tool designed to help you quickly develop engaging, interactive eLearning courses. By integrating Evolve with the Intellum platform, you can publish or update courses while working in Evolve - making your content development and delivery a seamless experience.

Continue reading to learn how to set up an Intellum integration within Evolve, and how to publish your Evolve courses to the platform.

Integrate with Intellum

Enable the ability to publish directly to Intellum, or to the Evolve Native format for upload to Intellum, by integrating your Intellum instance with Evolve.

Follow these steps to integrate an Intellum instance with Evolve:

  1. Log in to Evolve.
  2. Navigate to Account Settings > Global Settings
  3. Select Integrations from the sidebar.
  4. Select Exceed Instances. By default, Evolve includes a blank form to connect to your first instance - and gives you the option to add another.
  5. Evolve requires the following information for each integration:
    • Instance Name - the Intellum instance name
    • Instance URL - the Intellum instance URL.
    • API Key - the API Key from the Intellum instance.
Unrestricted admin can access the API Key by navigating to Settings > API > API Version 1 and 2

Heads Up!

You'll need the API Version 1 and 2 of your account's API Key to connect to Evolve. The API Key is accessible through account Settings.

A successful integration within Evolve.

Heads Up!

Once you've added your instance, contact Evolve Help & Support to request that the Exceed publish options are enabled for your Evolve account.

Publish to an Exceed Instance

Once your Exceed instance is successfully integrated with Evolve, you can publish your Evolve courses directly to the Intellum platform, or publish Evolve Native courses for upload as new E-Learning activities in the platform.

See description of Evolve Native publishing options below.

A. Publish Directly to Exceed

You'll see a Publish option for each Intellum instance integrated in Evolve. Select Publish to add, or update, the Evolve Native course to an instance.

Intellum creates a new File activity in the platform when you publish directly from within Evolve.

B. Publish for Upload to Intellum

Select Publish Course to download the Evolve Native course package.

Create a new file activity in the platform and upload the course package.

Evolve Native: Admin experience

The Intellum platform will recognize and tag your Evolve Native courses with a Package Type of Evolve. Once added, you have access to edit the new activity's Properties - just like the other activities in your catalog.

An Evolve Native course will reflect a Package Type of Evolve.

Interaction tracking

Only Evolve Native courses keep track of user interactions with the learning components in your courses. Evolve SCORM courses do not support interaction tracking.

Interaction data for Evolve Native courses is available in the JSON format and can be transferred to a data warehouse to be queried or piped into a visualization tool or JSON reader.

An example of interaction tracking data for a Slider interaction in an Evolve course.

You can export Evolve interaction data in a JSON format through the platform's reporting tool.

Create an Activity Enrollments report:

  1. Add Enrollments course activities adapt to the report Query to target specific interaction data.
  2. Add Enrollments course activities adapt to Report Columns to include it in your report results

Evolve Native: User experience

Users who interact with an Evolve Native course will see the course launch in-line in the platform - in the same way as other activities - as seen below:

Not having to open a new tab eliminates many of the tracking issues inherent in SCORM - like people closing tabs too early or data not being transmitted back to the platform correctly.
