Why is the courseID a string of long letters and numbers after our title?

Question: I just uploaded a file and noticed that the Course ID has a string of long letters and numbers after our title. Why is this produced? Why does this contain our program title then random numbers?


Answer: When you import a course, we need it to have a unique identifier for that course when registrations/invitations are created. If you are using the SCORM Cloud user interface, we do that for you with a portion of the course title and some random numbers to assure it is unique. However, you can specify a unique courseID via the Add Content screen highlighted in the screenshot below.

1 - Click Add Content

2 - Specify a unique courseID (please note: if you use an existing courseID it will create a new course version)

3 - Select the course

4 - Click Import course
