Importing Presentations from Education Harvester to Elevate LMS

Integration with the Cadmium's Education Harvester & eventScribe Products allow for easy import of sessions, speakers, posters, and session content post conference. Quick, one-time set up, will allow client admins to lookup and select content from any Education Harvester/EventScribe event that has already occurred as well as future events. Admins can select from those events, which sessions or posters to create as products in Elevate and customize that product import to set summary, description, pricing, categories and more. After creation of the Products, admins can additionally import content from those presentations to include, video/audio files, Warpwire content, slide PDFs, handouts, and speakers. With just a few clicks, an entire conference can be imported into Elevate as enduring content. 

Please note that this is not a real time sync; the content that is found in the Education Harvester at the time of import is what is brought into Elevate. You can import additional content and assets in after the initial import. 

**If you use Cadmium's EventTech products, please contact us at for one time integration set up. This is a no cost, one time implementation to allow you to bring conference content into Elevate.**
