Never heard of SCORM before? Sounds like something from a Sci-Fi movie, right? 👽

SCORM stands for Shared Content Object Reference Model and is a very fancy way of explaining to eLearning software that what it's looking at is a Course. Think of SCORM as the PDF of the eLearning world - it's interoperable and works across lots of eLearning platforms but it definitely serves a different purpose to a PDF!

Explanations aside, you can easily add these to the platform for all your learning needs! Here's how to do it:

1. Within the Studio select the SCORM option.

2. Name your SCORM Course, tag it to the desired Channel(s) and choose your Verifier, within the Information step.

3. Upload your chosen SCORM file in Step Two: Upload SCORM, by clicking on the (+) icon.

A pop-up to your computer files will appear. From here, select your SCORM file (which must end in ".zip" and not exceed 1 GB in size).

You can upload multiple SCORM Courses, by individually selecting the files, each time you click the (+) icon.

4. Your chosen files will appear in a list form on the page. Click Save & Continue, on the top-right, to confirm the upload.

5. Assign your Learners

5. At the Release & Deadline step, set your SCORM Course's Availability, add a Deadline, Make the Course recurring, (so Users have to retake again after a certain time period), and/or include Rewards (Certificates and/or Badges).

6. Click Save & Publish to set your Course live.
