LMS Integration Information

Gemba Academy content can be integrated into virtually any learning management system (LMS). We have successfully integrated with systems such as SkillSoft/SkillPort, Cornerstone, Moodle, as well as proprietary systems. Ask your sales representative how you can add LMS integration to your subscription.

There are four components to our content:

1. Videos

  • The videos must be stored on our servers and the customer's LMS should link to them. We enforce this policy to safeguard our intellectual property rights, seamlessly provide video updates, and stream video in the highest quality with no storage space required by the customer.
    • This can be accomplished in many ways. Some customers elect to open a new browser tab with the video. Others use iframes to embed the videos in webpages or SCORM modules.
    • Example iframe code:
      • <iframe src="https://enterprise.gembaacademy.com/lms-demo-videos/intro-01.html" allowfullscreen></iframe>
      • You can also experiment with other iframe parameters. Check iframe documentation over on Mozilla.
      • If you are struggling with the responsiveness of iframes, check embedresponsively.com to get some code suggestions
  • Our videos are hosted on a global content distribution network (CDN) specifically selected for reliability, security, and the ability to deliver high-bandwidth video worldwide.
  • Every video is provided through a basic HTML webpage, which has our player embedded in it. There's no need for client-side player software, and we don't receive any personally identifiable information, ensuring there are no security concerns.
  • There is no intermediate password required, thereby creating a seamless user experience. We use other passive security technologies, such as IP monitoring, to monitor access.
  • Upon purchase, we will provide a spreadsheet with all of the video URLs, including course name and video name, as well as video duration.
  • LMS customers are encouraged to sign up for our newsletter to keep up with all of our new video announcements. When an announcement is made, the Excel file will be updated so you can download the new version in order to distribute the new video content.

2. Quizzes

  • Quizzes can be downloaded onto customer servers.
  • Quizzes are provided in SCORM v1.2, SCORM 2004, and PDF formats.
  • Since a better assessment of "learning" is a knowledge check, not whether a video was watched, we recommend tracking quiz completion if a knowledge assessment is desired.

3. Supporting resources

  • Supporting resources can be downloaded onto customer servers, and include Excel templates, PDF overviews, Minitab files, etc.

4. Test Links and Files

Here are samples of each component for you to test with your LMS system:
