In Captivate 5 Essential Training, author James Lockman demonstrates the core features of Captivate 5, the popular tool for authoring e-learning content such as interactive presentations, click-through simulations, and customized assessments. He shows how to import and sync PowerPoint presentations, add interactivity, and incorporate audio, video, and voiceovers. The course also includes tutorials on assessment reporting and integrating with SCORM-compliant learning management systems. Exercise files accompany the course.
In this lesson, we will see how we can configure our project to talk to a SCORM-compliant learning management system. We will be using the Chapter 11_b file that we developed earlier in the chapter. We are going to use the Preferences panel. This is available under the Adobe Captivate menu on a Macintosh computer and under the Edit menu on a Windows computer. Once in the Preferences panel, go to the Quiz Reporting category. Switch your learning management system to SCORM. SCORM is a standard method of data interchange that's used by many learning management systems.
In order for this to work correctly, you have to make adjustments to the manifest. In here, you will enter information regarding the course and the objectives. Most likely you will get this information from your administrator. You need to identify the Course, provide a Title, perhaps even a Description. In many cases, the description is searchable on the learning management system. If the course changes over time, you will want to include the version number, so that users can see the different versions of the course. If there's a specified duration, then you will need to enter that here as well.
Under the objective area, you can limit the amount of time that a user will have to take the test. Once again, you will want to talk to your administrator to determine exactly what these settings will be for your company. Once you have the course information entered, then you can click OK. Having made that change, let's click OK and save our project. We will save as 11_c.
Many learning management systems use SCORM as their standard interchange format. If your learning management system uses SCORM you will need to set up the manifest appropriately, so that your content will talk to the system appropriately and you'll be able to analyze the results after the fact. You most likely have to have a conversation with your administrator to ensure that you've got the right information in the right place. Once you've done that, you'll be able to safely publish your content to your SCORM-compliant learning management system.
