The Admin Corner


Elsevier Performance Manager: Featuring Content

Elsevier Performance Manager: Core Development is an online education and performance management solution that offers administrators, such as you, tools needed to better manage, develop and communicate with your staff. Administrators, use Elsevier Performance Manager daily to perform tasks such as adding learners, viewing learner transcripts, assigning training, and reviewing reports.

Over the next several months, the Admin Corner will feature a specific training tool within Elsevier Performance Manager geared to increase your productivity. This issue of the Admin Corner features Content.

Content is a tool you can use to upload, link, and assign your own content/lessons to the Elsevier Performance Management site. Your lessons can be created in PowerPoint, Microsoft Word, or a web-authoring product. You can upload your content in the Content Uploader without the assistance of a client support staff. Once you supply lesson information in Content Linking, your lesson will appear in the Course Listing under Linked Content – CBT/WBT, where you begin the process of creating an assignable module. In brief, your content linked lesson must be uploaded, linked, and added to an assignable module before learners will be able to view your content in their E-Learning assignment lesson Plan. Please click the following links to access the Content Uploading and Linking instructional documents:
