- Open iSpring Suite and select the Books tab. Choose MS Word in the Create From section, or hit the Browse button to open your document.
- Click Preview and select a device and screen orientation to check how your SCORM course will look on a computer, a smartphone, and a tablet.
- Click on the Publish button. You have several destination tabs in the window. To convert Word to SCORM, choose the LMS tab. Now, you can customize your publishing options.
Rename your file, if necessary, and specify a folder where it’ll be saved. Then you can set up the quality options. You can select one of the ready-made presets, from high to low quality, or create your own custom preset by choosing the image compression you need or by adjusting the quality slider.
To protect your SCORM course and make it accessible only for selected people, you can set a password.
- Choose the standard (SCORM 1.2 or SCORM 2004) which your learning platform supports in the LMS profile menu.
Note: iSpring Suite allows you to publish courses not only for SCORM, but also for other eLearning standards, including AICC, Experience API (Tin Can), and cmi5.
After you choose a profile, you can fine-tune its settings. You can change the title of your course, add a description, and enter keywords.
- Save the settings and hit the Publish button. iSpring Suite will create a zipped course. Upload it to any SCORM-compliant LMS and keep track of your learners’ progress.
