How to Add a PDF to CoreLearning

I. Overview

In addition to its ability to deliver video content, CoreLearning is also able to allow an organization to upload PDF documents that may be appropriate to enhance the learning process or that pass on important information to the consumer.

In this "Tip & Trick," we'll show you how you can upload a PDF to your CoreLearning environment so that it becomes an Asset that you can then include in a Learning Path.

Overview of CoreLearning's Content Hierarchy

CoreLearning delivers content using a structured, hierarchical approach, as depicted in the image below.  While CoreLearning comes preconfigured with around 40 individual Libraries and approximately 170 Learning Paths, a CoreLearning administrator can modify the baseline configuration so that it fits the unique learning needs of their organization.  

  • UI Group - The UI Group is the top of the hierarchy and is typically used to group learning content into 
  • Library – A Library consists of one or more Learning Paths.
  • Learning Path - Is a collection of Assets that together are intended to deliver knowledge to the consumer on a specific topic.  Most often, Learning Paths are designed bundle Assets together to achieve a targeted learning goal.  
  • Asset - An Asset is content in CoreLearning that is either include with the subscription itself or which has been uploaded by the customer.  While Assets are most generally videos, they can also be audio files or, as in the case of this article, a PDF document.

How to add a PDF Document as an Asset

You add a PDF document into CoreLearning in the same manner as you would upload a video.

  • Be sure you are logged into 
  • Select the Library in which you want to add the PDF document.
  • One you have selected a Library, you should see a display similar to the abbreviated example, depicted below.


  • Select the tile named Asset Bin.
  • Once you selected the Asset Bin you should then placed into the Asset management page, as in the example below.  From here you can add, remove, update or hide Assets as needed.

  • To add the PDF document, click on the tile labeled Add your own content.
  • You’ll then be presented with a page similar to the one below.  Select Upload. 

  • Once you have selected Upload, you’ll then you will be presented with a page whereby you can then choose the PDF file you want to upload.  This is a standard file selection option that you are likely familiar with.
  • Once you have selected the document that you want to upload, you can then select save.  This will return you to the Asset Bin that we referenced in Step 5 above.  From here you click on the Asset Name which will allow you to provide a meaningful Friendly Name, add any relevant Search Tags.  You can also delete an Asset if that is needed.
