How do I import SCORM files as an assignment?
If your institution has enabled the SCORM LTI, you can upload SCORM ZIP files as assignments and as pages in your course (per the applicable package content). SCORM is a technical standard for many e-learning products and is often used to create course content. Once enabled, the SCORM Link will appear in the Course Navigation menu. SCORM packages are imported as External Tool Assignment submissions.
To enable your SCORM content as a stand-alone HTML site, you may need to re-export your SCORM content.
- The SCORM LTI must be enabled in External Apps at the account level before it can be used in courses. If you are an administrator, please contact your Customer Success Manager for assistance.
- If you delete a SCORM assignment from the Assignments page, the assignment will still appear on the SCORM page, and if you try to open the assignment, Canvas will generate an error. However, if you delete the assignment from the SCORM page, the assignment will also be deleted from all other applicable Canvas locations.
- Canvas supports the following versions of SCORM: SCORM 1.2 and SCORM 2004 (2nd, 3rd, and 4th Edition).
- SCORM is not available in beta or test environments of Canvas.
- If a SCORM package is not updated to require signed launch links, users see an "ApiUseSignedLaunchLinks is true, but link was not signed" message when attempting to load their content instead of a media player.
- If SCORM packages are not updated to require signed launch links, the encrypted launch links can be copied, however, they are only valid for a few seconds after they're initially requested and users see a "Token has expired" or "Player could not load" message.
