How to Configure Courses for the Absorb Learn Mobile App

The following is for Admins who have portals that have enabled the Absorb Learner Mobile App. Learn more about this feature here.


If your Portal has been configured to allow your Learners access to courses through the Absorb Learn mobile app, Admins can configure their new online Courses and Curriculum to make them accessible through this app.  If your system was newly configured to allow mobile app access, Admins will also need to edit existing courses so that they are mobile accessible.  This article guides Admins through the steps needed to configure Courses and Curriculum for mobile access via the Absorb Learn Mobile App.  

Important Note (If Applicable)

Please check with your System Admin to ensure that your Portal has been configured so that your Learners can access their Courses through the Absorb Learn Mobile App.  (System Admins can review this article to learn how to configure your Portal to allow your Learners access to the Absorb Learn Mobile App.)
