When you are ready to publish an eLearning course from your authoring tool, be sure to select the standard for LMS Output SCORM 1.2 or SCORM 2004. Important: As current browser versions, such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer, begin to phase out support for Flash-based content and as Adobe has announced the end of Flash support in 2020, we strongly urge you to begin producing your SCORM content in pure HTML5 with no Flash content.
Here are a list of additional basic requirements to promote successful content deployment in the LMS:
STEP THREE: Course Catalog Entry and Content Deployment
This document assumes an existing knowledge of LMS course creation basics. It will only reference those points relevant to adding eLearning courses and deploying content. If you need to review the common elements of the Add Course functionality, please read related document: Add a New Course to the LMS. If you are uploading new content to an existing eLearning course, skip to #6 in the instruction list below.
Begin by selecting, from the Administration left navigation menu, Courses > Add Course and populate the appropriate configuration settings. The specific points to consider in setting up an eLearning course are:
1. Do NOT include any special characters (e.g. @, $, &, etc.) in the Course Code or Course Name fields. Use only alphanumeric, hyphen, or underscore characters.
2. In the Delivery Method field, select eLearning.
3. The Can Relaunch setting determines whether or not students can relaunch course content after achieving a completed status.
4. When the Add Course form is complete, click Add Course.
5. In the confirmation pop-up window, determine your next step from the following options:
6. Navigate to the SCORM tab when you are ready to deploy content.
7. Click Choose File to upload the zipped SCORM file (size limit is 180 MB).
8. Deployment Options
9. Click Deploy and wait for the on-page notification that your content has been queued for deployment. This means that your file was successfully loaded to the LMS SCORM content server and is being processed.
If the file fails to upload, it is usually because a) the ZIP file was larger than the allowed 180 MB size limit, b) special characters were found in the file name or key locations in the content, or c) the placement of the imsmanifest.xlm file in the zipped content is incorrect. Try loading a file at least twice before contacting the ClientCare team with questions.
10. Once this activity is confirmed, you can monitor the status of your deployment process via email, or from your LMS “Messages” page. A notification is sent once the content deployment process is complete, informing whether the attempt succeeded or failed.
11. Course Shell Configuration settings allow you to enable/disable tools that enhance presentation of each e-Learning course. Apply changes in real time by clicking Update Shell Configuration button, without the need to re-deploy your SCORM content. Set default configuration or brand these features from your Site Management > LMS Information page. Learn more: LMS Information and Portal Configuration
