Running SCORM v1.2 and v2004 content in Shika LMS

Any serious eLearning system today is expected to have SCORM support. In case you have not heard about it, SCORM stands for “Sharable Content Object Reference Model” and it is a set of technical standards developed for eLearning content. 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. Shika supports both SCORM v1.2 and SCORM 2004.

Learning, ideally also needs evaluation. A great way to do that is using Quizzes. The Quiz creation wizard lets you quickly compile quizzes from your Question bank.  If you need more accuracy, you can always go the manual route and add specific questions.

Course Creation Wizard

That's all for now! We will keep updating you on the progress every week or so. Its time now to start commenting on the thread and give your valuable feedback!
