In this article we will provide some general workarounds or best practices when working with SCORM.
- Try to limit the number of slides in a learning presentation to around 50 or less, as larger presentations are more prone to error, take longer to load/view (especially if media heavy), and students retention of information decreases as time goes on
- Moodle allows for many different learning activities - such as quizzes - to be used which are a good way to track and measure a learner’s progress. If tracking of a SCORM lesson is not critical it’s possible to take advantage of Moodle’s quizzes, activities, conditional access restrictions and activity completion features as an alternative to SCORM.
- When tracking completion of a Articulate built SCORM Learning module based on viewing all the slides; if Engage Interactions are used this might cause difficulty as every tab and every second of the Interaction has to be viewed for a slide to be considered complete.
- If going mobile publish your presentations to be mobile friendly (use HTML 5 or other technologies as Flash is commonly not supported in the mobile world)
