How to Upload a SCORM Course into the Moodle LMS

Do you want to use the eLearning content created in SmartTutor 360 in Moodle? It’s simple, Moodle, a SCORM 1.2 compatible LMS, cannot create SCORM content, but allows you to add SCORM package zip files to the system. You can then edit or share it later.

To upload SCORM to Moodle quickly and easy, we will do it in 4 steps.

Why is SCORM used in LMSs? Because it ensures that your courses are perfectly supported by your LMS, and it can also transition smoothly between different learning management systems. Moodle is no exception.

Now we will step-by-step to upload a SCORM package into Moodle

Before you add a SCORM file, go to Moodle and log in to your account in the LMS.

If you have not registered an account, register for a Moodle account.

Step 2. Turn on the Edit mode

In the top right corner of the Home screen, you’ll see the Edit mode toggle switch. Turn editing on. This will allow you to upload new files with SCORM activities.
