Your learning management system uses CSV (Comma Separated Values) files to import data.
To import student and enrolment data you will need to export this information from your student management system.
Getting data out of your student management system
Most student management systems can export data in CSV format. If you’re not sure, speak to your IT staff and they may be able to assist in creating a custom report for you.
Once your data is in CSV format it can be loaded into a spreadsheet application like Excel or Open Office for verification or further processing.

Identifying students and trainers
Student and trainers must be uniquely identified within your CSV.
The three options available for identifying student and trainers in the system are by:
- Email address
- First and last name
