Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 1.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: SCORM module.



The SCORM/AICC module is a course activity which allows you (the teacher) to upload any SCORM or AICC package to include in your course.

SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) is a collection of specifications that enable interoperability, accessibility and reusability of web-based learning content. SCORM content can be delivered to learners via any SCORM-compliant Learning Management System (LMS) using the same version of SCORM.

What is SCORM

SCORM was developed as a result of collaboration in the public and private sectors. The President of the United States, Bill Clinton issued an Executive Order that created an agency (ADL) to oversee the standard for developing and distributing online learning. All Federal agencies are mandated to use programs that meet those standards. SCORM is one result of that order.

Compatibility with Moodle

SCORM 1.2 is supported in Moodle 1.9.3(or higher) and Moodle 1.8.7(or higher) and passes all the tests in the ADL Conformance test suite 1.2..7 for SCORM 1.2. Moodle 1.9.5 is certified SCORM 1.2 compliant.

SCORM 2004 is not completely supported in Moodle Core at this stage. Parts of the API have been implemented, but others such as Navigation and Sequencing are not yet supported. If you require a fully certified SCORM 2004 Player in Moodle, Rustici Software have a Moodle plugin which connects to their commercial SCORM Cloud service turning Moodle into a fully compliant SCORM 2004 LMS.
