Adding Activities

How to add activities into your OER on OpenLearn Create

Activities, such as forums, quizzes and wikis enable interactive content to be added to the course.

8. SCORM package

A Shareable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) package is a collection of files which are packaged according to an agreed standard for learning objects. The SCORM activity module enables SCORM or AICC packages to be uploaded as a zip file and added to a course.  Content is usually displayed over several pages, with navigation between the pages. There are various options for displaying content in a pop-up window, with a table of contents, with navigation buttons etc. SCORM activities generally include questions, with grades being recorded in the gradebook.

SCORM activities may be used

  • For presenting multimedia content and animations
  • As an assessment tool

There are pros and cons of using a SCORM package in Moodle.  Moodle doesn't generate SCORM content; it presents the content in SCORM packages to learners and saves the data about learner interactions with the SCORM package rather than in Moodle.  This may have an impact on your Moodle course completion tracking.

Instructions for uploading a SCORM package are being compiled.
