External Credit Importer

Mass assign external credits allows an administrator to easily upload credits earned in another system into the Elevate LMS so that the credits appear on the learner’s transcript in Elevate. The mass import allows credits to be applied to accounts for existing Elevate users and new users who do not already have an Elevate account. This useful tool makes importing learner credit earnings from a different system such as a different LMS, a conference, or an in-person event handled outside of Elevate easy.
