SCORM Uploader Overview

The SCORM Uploader Feature allows the user to import a SCORM package as a learning object for use in the Learnsoft LMS.

SCORM stands for “Sharable Content Object Reference Model” and it is a set of technical standards developed for eLearning software products. In its essence, SCORM enables interoperability between eLearning software products. Specifically, the model determines how online learning content and Learning Management Systems (LMS) communicate with each other.

The SCORM Uploader Feature provides an easy and convenient way to add SCORM material to the LMS and enabling both instant course creation and saving the SCORM package to the SCORM list for easy drop-down selection for future courses.

There are two methodologies for SCORM upload:

  • SCORM packages that are under 25 MB in size can be uploaded directly through the SCORM Uploader.
  • SCORM packages that are over 25 MB in size can be uploaded to the client’s private FTP directory tree and then can be added to their LMS system through use of the SCORM Uploader.
