Importing a SCORM Course to Canvas

SCORM integration steps for Canvas

This guide will walk you through how to add a SCORM course to the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS).

Download the SCORM File

First, you will need to obtain your secret SCORM token from your Interplay Learning Representative.
Next, navigate to https://skilledtrades.interplaylearning.com/scorm.html where you can type in your SCORM token and then click OK.
Image
Once you've entered your SCORM token, you will see the available SCORM course downloads categories.
Confirm that it says "Single-SCO" in the top right corner since this is the only way Canvas will report progress scores for students. If you do not see "Single-SCO", click on the "i" icon and select "Switch to Single-SCO".
Image
Simply click on your desired category and course and the SCORM zip file will appear in your Downloads folder by default. Hold onto that for now as we will add it to the Canvas LMS soon.
For this example, I have downloaded the "Residential A/C Troubleshooting - 3D/VR" course.
Note that the "More Info" button will contain course information that you may want to add in the settings of your course on Canvas.

Add the SCORM Course to Canvas

Log into Canvas and make sure that you have Admin permissions and that Canvas has enabled SCORM within your account.

Add SCORM to the Navigation Menu

Start by clicking on "Settings" from the Courses side menu.
Image
Go to the "Navigation" tab and if your Canvas account is SCORM enabled, you should see a SCORM item that you can drag and drop into the course navigation list in whatever order you prefer. If you do not see a SCORM item, contact a Canvas representative to get access. Click "Save" when you are done.

Add the SCORM Course to Canvas

From the side menu, select "SCORM". Click the "Upload" button and open the desired SCORM zip file.
Image
Choose whether you want to import the course as a graded assignment (you cannot change this without re-uploading the course) and click "Go".
Image
Navigate to "Assignments" in the side menu. If you would like to edit the course to add a description, add due dates, etc., click on the three-dot button and then "Edit" and "More Options". Don't forget to Save!
Image
I recommend testing that the course is working as expected by clicking on the title from the Assignments section or from Canvas's "Student View" which can be accessed from the "Home" section. Once it is to your liking, publish the assignment by clicking on the grey crossed circle.
Image
This course will now be visible to students.
