Regarding sharing eLearning content and tracking learners’ results, eLearning content packages (e.g. SCORM, AICC, xAPI, etc.) will be helpful. Besides Experience API (xAPI) packages, ActivePresenter 9 allows users to export projects to SCORM packages. And today’s tutorial will show you how to do that. 

To gain a deeper understanding of SCORM and xAPI, including their distinctions, just take a closer look at The Differences Between SCORM and Tin Can API (xAPI).

Download the latest version of ActivePresenter to try out the feature:

Download ActivePresenter

To export a project to a SCORM package, access the Export tab > Select SCORM

Export to SCORM in the Export tab

After that, the Export To SCORM dialog opens with two main tabs to explore:

Let’s see what the General tab has!

General Tab

The General tab provides you with many settings for the final output. For example, you can select which operation modes to export, define the pass/fail condition of the test, and so on. 

Export To SCORM dialog

The General tab of the Export To SCORM dialog is the same as that of the Export To HTML5 dialog. The only difference is that it does not have the Generate Index Page option.

Please refer to the General tab section of the Export To HTML5 dialog for detailed information. 

eLearning Tab

eLearning tab allows you to define some SCORM package information or use additional HTTP report.

In the SCORM Options section, access the SCORM Version combo box (1) and select one option from the list (SCORM 1.2 or SCORM 2004). 

Define Package Information

You should define some information about the eLearning content package (2). This makes tracking and managing become easier when you upload the content package to an LMS.

  • Identifier: Specify a name used by the LMS to identify different manifests. If you upload more than one course to an LMS, their identifier must be different from each other.
  • Version: Specify a version that can be used to differentiate manifests with the same identifier.
  • Organization Title: Specify a title for the organization to which this item belongs.
  • Item Title: Specify a title of your project that is displayed to users viewing the project using an LMS.

ActivePresenter 9 automatically generates the organization and item title from the project name, you can change it though.

  • Report the score in percentage: Normalize the score in the range of 1-100 instead of an absolute value. This option is only available in SCORM 2004. The score in SCORM 1.2 is always normalized.
  • Export each operation mode to a separate package: Export each operation mode to a separate package instead of exporting all operation modes to one package with multiple organizations.

For more details about how to track learners with an LMS, you can refer to Track Training Courses in an LMS.

Define Additional Report

The Additional Report section (3) is to specify the additional method for the report. It’s useful when you don’t have an LMS or you want to handle the report by yourself. Generally, when you export your project to an eLearning package, you don’t need to work with this section.

  • Method: Choose between the following options:
    • No Report: Do not send the report.
    • HTTP: Send a report through the HTTP request. 
  • Format: Choose either of two formats: XML Document or JSON (JavaScript Object Notation).
  • HTTP Address: This is the HTTP address of a server-side script that will process the report data (the data is either in XML or JSON format).

For further information, please take a look at this tutorial: Send Quiz Report to Google Sheets or to an Email Box.

So, that’s how to export projects to SCORM packages in ActivePresenter 9. Don’t forget to visit our Tutorials page and YouTube channel to get the most out of the app. Also, feel free to contact us whenever you need help.
