SCORM Authoring tools

SCORM 1.2 authoring tools

Why not just use Moodle native activities and resources? They come included out of the box and require no external editing tool. You don't need to buy and learn to use extra software, can update course content yourself anytime, and make content look great using H5P. If you aren't sure you will want to stick with Moodle, the portability of SCORM packages might be for you however, you may require training or need to contract work out to make even the simplest change.

Things you need to know... 
  • When choosing software to generate your SCORM package, it is important to remember that Moodle only includes built-in support for SCORM 1.2 (partial support for 2004, no support for xAPI/Tincan).
  • There isn't really any such thing as a SCORM editor. Typically, you create one or more activities in an application and then save or export it as a SCORM 1.2 package.
  • The paid tools are generally vastly superior to the free tools.
  • Be sure to only generate HTML5 SCORM packages. Flash SCORM packages are no longer supported by mobile devices, supported by less desktop web browsers with each passing year, and are not typically accessible. Even Adobe, the creators of Flash no longer support it.
