In the meantime, here are answers to a few FAQs we’ve been getting:

What is SCORM?

SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) is a global standard for packaging eLearning content. It allows users to export and import their previously authored online courses and course data, created via an external authoring tool, into any SCORM-Compliant Learning Management System, such as Odijoo.

How do I create a SCORM Course?

To create a SCORM course, simply use a SCORM-Compliant authoring tool and export it as a SCORM Compliant course. Most of the top tools for creating online course-ware are SCORM Compliant. These include: ArticulateLectoraAdobe PresenterClick2Learn/Toolbook.

What capabilities will SCORM bring to Odijoo?

Odijoo’s integration with SCORM will enable Odijoo course creators with previously-authored SCORM-compliant courses to import their courses into their own Odijoo Classrooms and Campuses, with just a few clicks.

How Easy is Importing a SCORM course into Odijoo?

Very easy! Simply click “Import SCORM Course” from the course author menu, select your course, play around with the settings and you’re ready!

Once I Import a SCORM Course into Odijoo, what can I do with it?

Once the course is imported, it can be added to an Odijoo Classroom. An Odijoo Classroom is a combination of one or more pieces of course material (ie SCORM courses, Odijoo courses, PowerPoint slides), resources (ie quizzes, discussion boards, completion reports, media) and students. Creating a classroom is simple and allows you to administer and teach your online courses to learners.

How will SCORM Make Odijoo Better?

SCORM’s integration with Odijoo will make Odijoo the first-ever SaaS-based, SCORM-Compliant eLearning platform to give users course authoring, publishing and monetization capabilities from their own unique URL, called an Odijoo Campus. Whether you: (a) already have previously authored SCORM content, (b) want to create an interactive course from scratch within Odijoo, or (c) simply want to import some PowerPoint slides and instantly convert them to course-ware, Odijoo will provide you with the service you need, for free.
