CONVERCENT’S SCORM PLAYER
Convercent has selected to partner with Rustici Software to provide their SCORM Engine product (widely recognized in the industry as the most compatible content player) as the vehicle that we will use to play SCORM packages.
What is SCORM?
SCORM is a set of technical standards for e-learning software products. SCORM tells programmers how to write their code so that it can “play well” with other e-learning software. It is the de facto industry standard for e-learning interoperability. Specifically, SCORM governs how online learning content and Learning Management Systems (LMSs) communicate with each other. SCORM does not speak to instructional design or any other pedagogical concern — it is purely a technical standard.
How does Convercent work with Rustici?
- As a Campaigns administrator, you will still load your SCORM packages to the Convercent platform.
- Participants will still log into Convercent to complete their training.
- Participants will be directed to the Rustici Engine (hosted by Convercent) to complete their training. Rustici will seamlessly pass back information to Convercent regarding whether the participant passed/failed and what score they achieved.
Supported Versions and Completion Interactions
Convercent currently supports the following SCORM versions:
- SCORM 1.0; SCORM 1.1; SCORM 1.2
- SCORM 2004, up to the 4th Edition
*The Rustici engine treats AICC just like SCORM in their engine. The import process is the same and all the data is stored in the same way. You can zip the 4 AICC descriptor files (and content files if not cross domain) and import the course as you would a normal SCORM course.
Supported Completion Interactions
Rustici tracks the score that the participant achieves and whether they pass or fail. This information is then made available through Convercent.
In Convercent, if they pass, when they click on ‘get my score’ they will see their score and that they completed the course.
If the participant fails to achieve the passing score, they will see this in the SCORM player. How they will see this depends on the SCORM package.
In Convercent, when they click on ‘get my score’ their status will be Incomplete. The participant will be able to take the course again. If they subsequently pass the course, they will be able to see this information in Convercent per above.
