If you're using another LMS besides iSpring Learn or simply want to share your course with other trainers, convert a longread that you created to SCORM or Experience API. 

SCORM is an international standard for online courses. If your course is published to SCORM, you can be sure that it will most likely be accepted by any modern learning management system (LMS). 

Experience API (xAPi or Tin Can) is an eLearning software specification that allows learning content and learning systems to speak to each other in a manner that records and tracks all types of learning experiences. Learning experiences are recorded in a Learning Record Store (LRS). LRSs can exist within traditional learning management systems (LMSs) or as a standalone product.

Exporting to SCORM

There are two working versions of the SCORM standard: 1.2 and 2004. Each of them has its own technical peculiarities and advantages. 

Version 1.2 shows the progress in the reports run on the course. You will see how much of the course a learner has already taken. 

Version 2004 provides more detailed information. Besides progress and status, the reports will show how many scores a user gained while taking the course and the quiz. 

This version has three editions, and you are supposed to choose one of them.

If you have already chosen an LMS where your SCORM course will be uploaded, just check which SCORM version it supports and select it in the menu.
