Converting from SCORM 1.2 to SCORM 2004 May 3, 2007

While tons of learning management systems (LMSs) still support SCORM 1.2, you could one day be forced into a scenario where you have to convert your eLearning to use SCORM 2004 instead of 1.2. This may happen if you switch to a different LMS or if your current LMS vendor forces the change (unlikely, I would hope). If you run into this scenario, I have great news: There’s a nifty little adapter available from SCORM guru Claude Ostyn. It’s called the Easy SCO Adapter for SCORM 1.2 to 2004.

According to Claude:

The Easy SCO Adapter for SCORM 1.2 to 2004 allows you to run any unmodified SCORM 1.2 conformant SCOs in a SCORM 2004 conformant LMS.

Thankfully I haven’t had to use it yet, but I’m hanging on to it just in case…

Note: There is another adapter available here from ADL; however, its license is a bit unclear in my opinion. The user guide that comes with it indicates that it can only be used for non-commercial, educational purposes. But the comments within the code lead you to believe that it can be used however you’d like. Either way, if you use it, double-check that you’re in the clear.

eLearn Campus is a consulting firm out of Vancouver who offers free webinars on different eLearning topics from time-to-time. The subjects range from designing better learning, to development tools, to getting management buy-in at your organization. I’ve attended several of these webinars and thought they were very helpful. If you’re interested, sign up for their free weekly newsletter so you’ll know about upcoming sessions.

You can also view webinars that were previously recorded.

I don’t have any affiliation with eLearn Campus, but I do highly recommend these sessions. They also offer a Certificate in eLearning Management which looks intriguing.
