Upload Your Adobe Captivate SCORM Content to an LMS

Uploading Adobe Captivate SCORM content to a Learning Management System (LMS) involves several steps. SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) is a standard that allows eLearning content to be shared and tracked across different LMS platforms.


Here's a general guide on how to upload SCORM content created with Adobe Captivate to an LMS:


Publish Your Content in SCORM Format:

  • Open your Adobe Captivate project.

  • Go to the "File" menu and select "Publish."

  • In the publishing settings, choose "SCORM" as the output format.

  • Configure the SCORM settings, including SCORM version (typically SCORM 1.2 or SCORM 2004), reporting options, and any other relevant settings.

  • Click "Publish" to generate the SCORM package. This will create a ZIP file containing your eLearning content.


Log into Your LMS:

  • Access your Learning Management System using your administrator or instructor credentials.


Upload the SCORM Package:

  • Locate the area in your LMS where you can upload or add new content. This may vary depending on your specific LMS platform.

  • Look for an option like "Add Content," "Upload Content," or "Import Content."

  • Select the SCORM ZIP file generated by Adobe Captivate and upload it to your LMS.


Configure Course Settings:

  • After uploading, you may need to configure various course settings, including the course title, description, enrollment options, and prerequisites. These settings will depend on your LMS and your organization's requirements.


Test Your Content:

  • Once the content is uploaded, you should preview it to ensure it works correctly within the LMS environment. Test interactivity, quizzes, and any tracking features to make sure they function as expected.


Assign and Publish the Course:

  • Assign the course to the intended audience, whether it's specific learners or groups.

  • Make the course available for enrollment or assign it to users as needed.


Track and Monitor Progress:

  • Use the tracking and reporting features of your LMS to monitor learners' progress, track quiz scores, and gather other relevant data.


Troubleshoot Issues:

  • If you encounter any issues or unexpected behavior, refer to your LMS's documentation and support resources for troubleshooting assistance. Additionally, Adobe Captivate's support resources can help with content-specific problems.


Update Content as Needed:

  • If you make updates or changes to your Adobe Captivate content, republish it as a new SCORM package and replace the existing content in the LMS.


Keep in mind that the specific steps and options for uploading SCORM content may vary depending on the LMS platform you are using. It's essential to refer to your LMS's documentation or contact their support team for guidance tailored to your system.
