Add a SCORM or xAPI package to the Content tool

Instructors can:

  • import, export, and copy courses that include course content and SCORM objects, both SCORM 1.2 and 2004
  • view high-level interaction data for their SCORM objects. In the future, more detailed interaction data will be available
  • connect SCORM objects with grade items that automatically enter into a grade book, if that functionality is enabled within their instance
  • basic search capabilities of an instructor’s own SCORM content
  • Static and dynamic linking of SCORM objects, and linking to multiple courses

Learners can play and interact with a course that includes course content and SCORM objects, both SCORM 1.2 and 2004.

Note: Any SCORM objects uploaded prior to March 30, 2017 will not appear in search or have the extended functionality. These items should be re-uploaded to leverage the new features.
