Copy SCORM Activities into new sections

Copy SCORM Activities into new sections

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

 

  Idea open for vote Wed. June 1, 2016 - Wed. September 7, 2016  Learn more about voting...

 

Hoorah that we have SCORM in Canvas! But HUGE bummer that the activities don't copy over from semester to semester. You have to reinstall it in every section which makes copying it out to multiple instructors to use each semester very difficult. It's not scalable as is. Can we make it so the activities stay active when copied into a new Canvas section?

 

This idea was requested in May of 2015 but was archived for lack of votes - Include SCORM objects on course imports. Let's not let this feature pass us up again!

Until this is fixed, SCORM is limping along.

Hi  @allison_hewett ​

This is a great idea and one that proposed a year ago and archived for lack of votes. You can view the original idea and its comments at , and you may want to add a link to this idea in your current request.

Since there are no similar current ideas, I am recommending that yours open for voting in the next period. You may want to check out How does the voting process work for feature ideas?

There is also a request to create a new Community Group to discuss and learn about SCORM. You can vote for this group to be created at

I hope this helps,

KLM

Yes, please Smiley Happy, if SCORM were a bit more tightly integrated I'd recommend it more often. We have several tools (Kaltura, Adobe Presenter, Adobe Storyline, Camtasia) that can use SCORM but we don't usually enable it as it does require more work and is less intuitive.

There is only one "true" way to make Canvas SCORM conformant, and that is to run a test with ADL's Conformance Test Suite, which is free to do. Until then, I only use SCORM for non-critical, low-stakes educational objects, and even then, you have to advise faculty that it may or may not always work as intended. It feels like SCORM is not a priority for Canvas, or it has been placed aside.

It seems that interchangeability with ANY other source is not a high priority.  Ask educators who are switching from Moodle. . .  Same thing goes for SCORM.

YES! For all those who use SCORM, this is a must. Copying content forward from one course to another should include all content, including SCORM. We need to help our instructors make the semester transitions as easy as possible. This would be a HUGE help to some of our instructors at Colorado State University.

Thanks for adding your vote Melody! Could you recruit other people from Colorado State to vote this up as a priority? We need more votes!

This option would open up a whole new dynamic for student interaction.  We start new classes every month and the current SCORM import process has been too time prohibitive to take advantage of.  This is my number 1 desire for Canvas.

This is critical if institutions are ever going to use SCORM effectively in Canvas.

This is a very important thing to build.  We want to utilize Articulate Storyline and have been hard pressed to cleanly integrate it.  If we reference the output html file then it doesn't render in every browser.  The html5 file won't progress in chrome.  The flash file doesn't play nicely with iOS (or most mobile platforms, to be honest).  The SCORM upload option works absolutely beautifully, but the projects obviously don't copy.  We don't have the bandwidth to be re-uploading each Storyline project to every section of the course each term.  That would be ridiculous; we would probably need to hire a temp or even a FT ID assistant.  We really need SCORM to copy when the course content is imported.  Without this feature SCORM is mostly useless to us.

This would be wonderful if it worked the way it is supposed to!  YES and YES!
