SCORM & Articulate: Help regarding multiple SCOs in 1 package?

Submitted by Kingsley 👑 on Wed, 09/30/2009 - 10:22

We haven't really used SCORM much because our LMS doesn't have an easy way to upload it. That issue will soon be resolved.
I would like to be able to publish several Articulate courses and then combine them into one package. I don't really even know where to begin.
The goal is to let the learner move from one course (SCO) to the next seamlessly.
I assume I publish each course and then edit the existing xml files or create new ones...
Hopefully there is a free/opensource solution that will automate this.
Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

I'm also interested in hand-coding some SCORM packaging. What I'm really looking to do (and I'm not sure I'm barking up the right tree with this) is to offer a fully 508 compliant version of each of our Articulate courses in the same package with the regular, not-so-compliant Articulate course.

My ultimate goal is for the LMS to accept completion of either SCO as completion for the course. So, essentially, multiple modes of delivery for the same content where completing either SCO will satisfy completion for the package.

I haven't had time to delve into this (this is going to have to wait until October), but Dave Mozealus has recommended the Dreamweaver addon Manifest Maker as a way to build the multiple SCO package. It looks like it handles only SCORM 1.2, and I'm not sure if it's being updated.

This will be my starting point. I'd be interested in hearing other ideas for doing this sort of thing.

Cheers,
Brian

In Quizmaker 2.1 there was a javascript call StoreQuizResults when the user completed the last question on the quiz. Now in 09 that javascript is not being called. Do you have any insight into what javascript is being called(only get Close window) for so that we can capture the quiz results?

Is there a resource that we can access, do we need to hire a programmer with more Articulate experience, or javascript?

Thanks,

Pat

Manifest maker is what we've used to create multi-course (sco) packages, however the user must return back to the LMS to launch the next course. If there is a way to make it seamless so the user doesn't have to return back to the LMS would be great.
