- Using the search tool filters
You can sort the order of the courses based on the following criteria (2):
- Rating: courses will show up in order of the number of stars it has gained through voting (in descending order).
- Name: the list will be sorted in alphabetical order.
- Date: the most recently added courses will be on the top of the list.
- Price: courses will be sorted from highest to lowest price.

Expand your curriculum with professionally created courses from our content providers (4), including Vado, Bigger Brains, BizLibrary, Mind Channel, and more.
The majority of our vendors provide courses to clients using SCORM 1.2, the de facto standard of eLearning for a better-quality course.
- Choose your preferred course and click it.
- On the course page, click Get this course. If the course is free, it’s immediately added to your TalentLMS portal. If not, the Buy licenses dialog box pops up.
- On the Buy licenses dialog box, type the number of Licenses (1) you want to purchase, and your credit card information (Card number, CVC, Expiration date) in the respective fields (2).
- Click Buy licenses to complete the purchase (3).
The course is now added to your course list. You can edit the course description, change the course image, and add new content.
Note: For security reasons, you cannot clone the courses you acquire from the Marketplace.
Purchased courses have an indication for the number of Licenses you own (i.e., the times you can assign the courses to a different learner). There is no restriction for instructors.
When you assign the course to a user, one of your licenses is labeled as Reserved. When the user completes the course, that license is labeled as Consumed. If for some reason, the user fails to complete the course and abandons it, that license can be reused.
