SCORM Content in Cerego

Cerego now offers enhanced support for SCORM content, including scheduling and goals, to improve your learning experience. In this updated support article, we will guide you through using SCORM content in Cerego, and provide best practices for incorporating it into your courses.

Does Cerego support SCORM content?
Yes, Cerego supports SCORM content! You can feel free to upload any of your existing SCORM content that you may have created with any number of providers. We support the most up to date standards, including standard support for SCORM 1.1, SCORM 1.2, SCORM 2004 (2nd, 3rd, & 4th editions), and AICC (versions 2.2 and 3.5/4.0 of HACP). We currently do not yet support Experience API (“xAPI”, formerly “Tin Can” API).

How do I upload SCORM content to Cerego?
Uploading SCORM content to Cerego is a simple process. In the normal set creation flow, you will see a drop-down menu with the option to select ‘SCORM’. Once selected, you can upload your SCORM package, and it will be automatically converted into a SCORM set available as an assignment. However, due to the nature of SCORM, there is no mixing of Cerego content with SCORM content within a set, and a SCORM package stands alone as its own set.

How do I assign SCORM content?
You can assign SCORM content like you would any other Cerego content. In your Course assignments, search for the SCORM set you just created and add it to your Course. Assign SCORM content alongside Cerego sets – you’re done!

Scheduling SCORM content with Goals 

Cerego now allows users to schedule SCORM content using the same Goal feature as other assignment types. Setting a goal on SCORM content allows it to be adaptively scheduled for users, depending on the goal level, which determines the frequency at which they will engage with the content. This helps learners build lasting, transferable knowledge and drives behavior change.

One-time assessments with SCORM content

If you prefer to use SCORM content as a one-time assessment, you can simply not set a goal. This will make the SCORM content available for learners to engage with just once.

Important Notes:

  • Due to the nature of SCORM content, Cerego will not adaptively break up the assignment into discrete pieces, as it does with native Cerego authored content. When engaging with SCORM content, the learner will go through the entire assignment at once.

  • A best practice for authors who desire more discrete pieces of content is to author the SCORM content in smaller chunks. This will allow for a more focused learning experience and make it easier for learners to engage with the material.

Is the SCORM learning experience available on the mobile apps?
SCORM content is available on mobile, however due to the standard’s restrictions, the mobile experience of SCORM is sub par, and we recommend using desktop to have an optimized learning experience.

How does SCORM track completion in Cerego?
SCORM tracks completion by using a set of built-in rules that determine when a learner has successfully completed a course or module. These rules are called “completion conditions” and can be set by the content creator. For example, a completion condition could be set to require that a learner must achieve a certain score on an assessment or must view all of the content in a module.

It’s important to note that if the SCORM content you’re uploading does not have a proper means of completion built-in, it will never be marked as completed in Cerego. This is because our platform relies on the completion conditions set within the SCORM content itself to determine completion. Without these conditions, it’s not possible for our system to know when a learner has finished the content.

Can I manually mark SCORM content as completed in Cerego?
No, the completion status of SCORM content in Cerego is determined by the built-in completion conditions set within the SCORM package itself. As an educator or administrator, you do not have the ability to manually mark SCORM content as complete. It’s essential that you verify that your SCORM content has the necessary completion tracking mechanisms built-in before uploading it to Cerego.

It’s always a good idea to thoroughly review the SCORM content that you plan to use in your course, to ensure that it has proper completion tracking mechanisms built-in, otherwise, the completion of your learners on the SCORM content would be difficult to track.

I just completed a SCORM assignment in Cerego, but my status still shows as incomplete. How come?
It can sometimes take a few hours for completion statuses for SCORM content to update in Cerego, so just be patient! If it’s been more than six hours and your completion status still looks incorrect, double check the completion conditions configured for the content in question. If it looks like the completion conditions were configured correctly and your completion status in Cerego is still not updated, please reach out to our Support team. We’re always happy to help!
