Publishing to SCORM (Basic)

You can publish Paligo content as a SCORM output. SCORM is an interchange format for importing into Learning Management Systems (LMSs) and eLearning platforms.

Paligo's SCORM (basic) output is for publishing regular content to an LMS. It is available on all plans, but does not support progress tracking or interactive features such as quizzes.

Note

Paligo also has a more powerful SCORM output that supports progress tracking, quizzes, and more. It is currently in beta, so if you would like to use it, please contact customer support so they can enable it on your instance. it is available on the Enterprise plan and on trials.

The following instructions explain how to use the basic SCORM support. It covers publishing Paligo content to SCORM and then importing that content into an LMS. We have used the free LMS Moodle Sandbox environment as an example, but you can use a different LMS if you prefer.

  1. Publish the publication you want to import into the LMS (such as Moodle).

  2. Use a SCORM layout to publish a publication.

    To learn how to create a SCORM layout, see Create a Layout.

    For details on the SCORM layout settings, see SCORM Layout Editor Options.

    To learn how to publish content, see Publishing Process.

  3. Unzip the published content.

    Inside the zip file, in the out folder, there is another zip file. This is the one you will import.

  4. Log into the Moodle sandbox using the supplied test login credentials "admin" / "sandbox".

  5. Select Add an activity or resource. Select "SCORM package" in the dialog that pops up:

  6. In the next view, Adding a new SCORM package, give it a name and description.

  7. Drag and drop the zip file in the out folder of your published content. Then click Save and display.

Note

  • The SCORM output contains a simple Table of Contents (TOC). In Moodle, the TOC is auto-created, so you'll have duplicate TOCs. In such a case you would use CSS to hide the included TOC:

    div.toc{
      display: none;
    }

    Other LMS systems do not auto-create the TOC, which is why one is included.

Note

The initial styling is quite basic and is provided by Moodle and also CSS that's included in the Paligo conversion. Whatever LMS you publish to, you will need a customization to make it look good.
