Add a SCORM activity

This guide explains what a SCORM activity is and how to create it in Moodle.

What is a SCORM activity?

A SCORM activity (or package) is a collection of online training material that is put together to an agreed standard for learning objects. The SCORM activity module enables SCORM and AICC packages to be uploaded as a zip file into your Moodle space.

SCORM activities comprise of a number of "assets" such as HTML page, images, audio file, and quiz questions. Content is usually spread over several pages, with navigation between the pages. If the SCORM package contains questions, then the students' grades will be recorded in the Moodle Gradebook.

SCORM activities can be used to:

  • Present multimedia content and animation
  • As an assessment tool
