After you have created a new lab manual project, you add instructional content.

You can add instructional content in the following ways:

  • By uploading a Word document (.docx file format) or a manual previously exported from the Content Engine (such exports are ZIP files).

  • By importing manuals residing in the ScreenSteps authoring tool.

Note:

VMware Learning Platform supports import for Word DOCX files, but not for DOC files.

If your instructional manual is in PDF format, it does not need to be part of a lab manual project. Instead, upload the PDF file as a resource as described in Importing lab resources.

About Multiple Language Support

The Content Engine cannot translate a manual. Translations must be done by a content provider. But the Content Engine does support uploading and importing multiple language drafts of the same instructional content. This multiple language support is very useful because lab consoles include a Profile Settings option. A lab user can set the Profile Settings to associate the lab console to a version of the lab manual in a selected language.
