The Course ID must be unique within the account.

SCORM Package

Click Upload SCORM/PPT to upload a .ZIP file of your SCORM package. 

Refer to SmarterU File Uploads for file specifications.  

We recommend not making any other changes on the workscreen until the file has completed uploading. The Window Size & Properties button will not be enabled until after you upload your SCORM package and click Save.

The amount of time it takes to complete the conversion can vary. If the course remains in conversion for an extended period of time, please contact our Success Desk and provide them with your account name and course name.

If you upload a .PPT file, you will receive an email when SmarterU has converted the presentation to a SCORM course.

  • If you upload a PowerPoint file to a new course, the course status will be set to Archived until the file conversion is complete. This is done to prevent the course from being edited and prevent users from being enrolled. If you upload a PowerPoint file to an existing course, the status is unchanged and the previous SCORM package will be used for any enrollments until the conversion is complete.
  • Refer to Editing a SCORM Course for information on what learners will see when the .ZIP file is updated.
