In BluePrint, you can create two types of courses: a BenchPrep Course or an Asset-Based Course. In this article, we'll cover the differences between the two.

BenchPrep Course

This is our standard offering. Select this course to create all standard content like lessons, questions, and flashcards. It also supports integration of SCORM, Skillable labs, and Practice-Based Question (PBQ) sets into the structure.


We recommend this course type if you have content that already exists (in .docx, .pdf, .html, or some other format) or outlined content you intend to create within the platform.


Note: To ensure your course performs well, we advise a maximum of 5,000 content items within a single course. A lesson, flashcard, question, passage essay topic is considered a single content item.  There is no limit to the number of assets, tests, study tasks or milestones you may include.


Here’s an example of how a BenchPrep course looks in our platform:


Asset-Based Course

This type of course will not display in our Learning Platform: instead, a learner will find and launch this course in their User Portal/Learning Hub. The course will pull up a dedicated player to display the content to learners. They’ll be able to interact with the course and keep track of their progress in the User Portal. We support the following content types:

  • xAPI
  • AICC
  • cmi5
  • PDF
  • URL uploads

If your course has already been authored in Storyline, Rise, Articulate, or another Content Authoring Tool that exports to a format besides HTML, we recommend this course type. To leverage all of our platform’s features and analytics reporting, we recommend you spend time converting the content into HTML-5 on our platform.
