Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.7. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle may be available here: SCORM settings.

Template:Scorm To edit or add a SCORM to a course, turn on the course edit mode as a teacher with editing privileges. A SCORM is a course activity that can be added with the "Add an activity" drop down menu.

The SCORM activity can also be used to add AICC content running using AICC HACP (HTTP AICC Communication Protocol "Appendix A"), see CMI001 - AICC/CMI Guidelines For Interoperability [1]

Settings

  1. In an existing SCORM activity, select settings on the left. You will then see the settings page:
    Moodle 1.6 SCORM Setting Page
  2. Add the name of the package in the Name field and (optionally) information in the Summary area. The Summary text is only seen, after the name, in the list shown when you choose "activities > Scorm"
  3. Click the "Choose or edit a package ..." button to open the course Files area. Locate the zipped SCORM package (otherwise upload it to the server before continuing). NOTE: The SCORM Package should be a SCORM 1.2 Packet Interchange Format (PIF) package, for AICC content upload a single ZIP file that contains the AICC *.AU, *.CRS, *.DES, *.CST and optionally *.ORT Metadata. These files should all be in the root of the ZIP file.
  4. Click the Choose link (NOT the Unzip link) for the package. (Tip: If the Choose link is not visible - close the pop-up window and click the "Choose or edit a package ..." button again.) NOTE: As an alternative to the previous two steps, you may paste a URL into the Package file field that references a zip file or imsmanifest.xml file hosted on an external repository.
  1. other settings are:
    1. Grading method
      • Learning Objects - This mode shows the number of completed/passed Learning Objects for the activity. The max value is the number of Package's Learning Objects .
      • Highest grade - The grade page will display the highest score obtained by users in all passed Learning Objects.
      • Average grade - If you choose this mode Moodle will calculate the average of all scores.
      • Sum grade - With this mode all the scores will be added.
    2. Number of attempts - This define the number of attempts permitted to users. It works only with SCORM 1.2 and AICC packages. SCORM2004 has its own max attempts definition
    3. Attempts grading - When you permit multiple attempts to users, you can choose how to use the result of attempts in gradebook.
    4. Auto-Continue - If Auto-continue is set to Yes, when a Learning Object calls the "close communication" method, the next available Learning Object is launched automatically.If it is set to No, the users must use the "Continue" button to go on.
    5. Disable preview mode - If this option is set to Yes, the Preview button in the view page of a SCORM/AICC Package activity will be hidden. The student can choose to preview (browse mode) the activity or attempt it in the normal mode. When a Learning Object is completed in preview (browse) mode, it's marked with browsed icon
    6. Course structure display (TOC)
    7. Hide navigation buttons
    8. Window: Stage size width, Stage size height, & Display package
    9. Display package: Allow the window to be resized, Allow the window to be scrolled, Show the directory links, Show the location bar, Show the menu bar, Show the toolbar, Show the status bar.
  2. Then click the "Save changes" button, the SCORM activity is displayed in the "stage" area.

Please note that Moodle can't create SCORM packages - the SCORM module is simply for deploying SCORM packages. If you wish to create SCORM packages please see the links to SCORM tools.
