About the SCORM tool in Canvas

Canvas provides a simple SCORM player that can be used with a variety of SCORM packages. With the Canvas SCORM tool, you can upload SCORM packages into a course and use them as either graded or ungraded assignments.

Note:
The Canvas SCORM tool can play SCORM content and, if you wish, return a score to the Canvas gradebook. It does not provide reports on other tracking that may occur within the SCORM package, regardless of how the SCORM package is set up.

Adding the SCORM tool to your course navigation

SCORM is hidden by default.

To add a hidden tool to your course navigation menu:

  1. In your course navigation menu, click Settings.
  2. On the Navigation tab, in the list of hidden tools (under "Drag items here to hide them from students"), find the desired tool, and then click the corresponding Settings (gear) icon.
  3. To add the desired tool, click the corresponding gear icon, select 'Enable', and then click 'Save'.

  4. Select Enable and, if desired, drag and drop the enabled tool to change its position in the tool list.
  5. Click Save.

Using the SCORM tool

  1. From your course navigation menu, select SCORM.
  2. At the upper right, click Upload.
  3. Select the .zip file containing your SCORM package. It may take several seconds to upload the file, depending on its size; a progress bar will indicate upload status. When the process is complete, the new upload may appear at the bottom of your list of SCORM packages.
  4. From the Choose import type... drop-down menu, choose to import as either a graded or ungraded assignment. Click Go.
  5. Navigate to the Assignments tool and find the new assignment. Edit the assignment to add necessary instructions, point value, due date, and so on. Do not change anything in the "Submission Type" field.
  6. Click Save, and then click Publish to publish the assignment.

Your students will access the SCORM object via the Assignments tool. If you have made it a graded assignment, students' scores on the assignment will appear in the gradebook.
