When adding links to your spreadsheet, please paste them in a browser window to be sure they work. If a link has an "https" prefix but does not work in a browser, please try using "http" instead.

For help bulk uploading your content, contact PBS at PBSLM.MC@pbs.org.

What does it mean to bulk upload content?

Bulk upload supports creating and updating resources and assets. Each row in your spreadsheet must contain an update or a create only. You cannot combine an update and create in the same row. If you need to create a resource and update an asset, or vice versa, add them on separate rows. Check out a sample file

Many PBS LearningMedia contributors upload between three and 20 resources per project. The bulk content upload feature provides a fast and easy way to ingest several resources at one time. To utilize this feature, contributors must prepare and organize metadata in a spreadsheet prior to upload. Organization is key so use the bulk upload spreadsheet as a tool to ensure the accuracy of your metadata.

If you want to make changes to several resources that are already in the system, you can request a bulk download by emailing PBS at PBSLM.MC@pbs.org. We will bulk download your content to an Excel spreadsheet then you can make changes to the spreadsheet and bulk upload it following the instructions below.

How does it work?

The process begins with you!   First you must construct a bulk content upload file that contains all of the metadata you want to import. Then the PBS LearningMedia bulk upload tools pulls the content from that spreadsheet and systematically places it into the proper places so it surfaces on www.pbslearningmedia.org as if you had manually typed everything in.   

Acceptable file formats

Only CSV and XLSX files are accepted.

Who can bulk upload content?

Bulk uploading content can only be done by Service Admins and Content Admins only.  See full list of roles and permissions

How to create a bulk content upload file

In order for your bulk content file to upload correctly, you must be sure to include all necessary fields. Review this table that shows which fields are required and guides you on how to your data should be formatted. Pay close attention to the examples in the table and model your spreadsheet after the sample file

Important notes about bulk content upload

 

When adding links to your spreadsheet, please paste them in a browser window to be sure they work. If a link has an "https" prefix but does not work in a browser, please try using "http" instead.

  • Use all lower case lettering in your spreadsheet column headings.
  • Do not use any spaces in your column headings and only use underscores to separate words.
  • You cannot make up column header names; you must use the names established by PBS.
  • Always customize your resource code. See additional information
  • You can copy the resource title to the asset. View tips on writing resource titles
  • Bulk upload ONLY supports resources with a single primary media object (defined in the main resource line) and support materials (defined in separate lines).  Media galleries and collections are not supported by bulk upload.
  • For Text fields, be sure to change the excel columns to Text.  Highlight the cells to which you are adding text, click the dropdown menu in the Number menu and click Text.

  • Save your file in in either .xlsx or .csv format. Other formats are not accepted.

  • Be sure to include HTML character codes in the long description field.

    The Entity column displays the HTML you should use when you want to use particular characters. All codes will display correctly in all browsers, both in HTML4 and in HTML5 pages.

A rainbow is a phenomenon that is caused by reflection and refraction of light in water droplets in the Earth's atmosphere, resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky.  All rainbows are full circles, however, the average observer only sees approximately the upper half of the arc, the illuminated droplets above the horizon from the observer's line of sight.

 Sample bulk upload file

How to upload your CSV file

  • From the main CMS dashboard, in the Content section (Figure 1.1), click Bulk Upload Content (Figure 1.2).

Figure 1

 

  • In the Content Project textbox, type the name of the content project that is associated with the content you are uploading (Figure 2.1). As you type, a list of possible matches is generated.  Click the content project name to which you want to associate the bulk content file. Do not just type and click Enter. This ensures that your spreadsheet goes to the valid and authentic content project.
  • Click Choose File to search your computer for your bulk upload file (Figure 2.2).

If you are uploading a spreadsheet that includes more than one content project, leave the content project textbox empty.
