Why do I need to convert PowerPoint to SCORM?

PowerPoint presentations have limited LMS support, and most often provide no tracking at all. With SCORM, you can quickly upload the course to an LMS, share it with learners, and track their progress.

FAQ on PowerPoint and SCORM

Can PowerPoint be used for eLearning?

Yes, definitely. PowerPoint is a simple and accessible way to build learning content and provide learners with knowledge. Just add your text and media to the PPT slides and your instructional content is ready to go. But if you use an LMS for content delivery, you’ll need to convert PowerPoint presentations to SCORM.

How to create an engaging SCORM course from a PowerPoint file

PowerPoint alone will hardly let you make really engaging content. But with authoring tools like iSpring Suite, you can elevate your PowerPoint content to a new level. Here’s how:
  • Add an online quiz. Quizzes are a great way to motivate learners to study information properly, as well as assess learners’ knowledge. Try mixing question types and adding graphics to your quizzes to make them even more engaging.
  • Create a role-play simulation. To let your learners practice their communication skills, add scenarios. They provide a high level of interactivity and require learners’ immersion in the training process. To delve deeper into this topic, read this blog post about role-play training.
  • Add a voice-over. Voice-overs are another way to increase the value of your course and make it more attractive for your learners. And you even don’t have to hire a professional voice-over artist. iSpring Suite comes with a built-in text-to-speech tool that allows you to create narrations in a matter of minutes.
To get more helpful tips on converting PowerPoint slides to engaging SCORM courses, check out our article on how to convert your PowerPoint presentation to an eLearning module.

What is SCORM?

SCORM stands for Shareable Content Object Reference Model. It is an international standard for e-courses that’s specifically designed to make eLearning content work in any learning management system. If your course is published in the SCORM format, you can be certain that almost any LMS will recognize it.

Why should you convert PPT to SCORM?

The main advantage of converting PowerPoint to SCORM is that you can upload the content to the LMS and monitor your learners’ progress. An LMS ensures an easy eLearning delivery and makes SCORM-compliant eLearning content entirely trackable. You can see how your slides are viewed, in what order, and whether the course has been completed or not. Plus, your learners will be able to view your PPT-based courses online on any device, both desktop and mobile.

Should I use SCORM 1.2 or SCORM 2004?

When converting a PPT presentation to a SCORM file, you need to consider which standard your LMS supports. Both output options allow you to get reports on learners’ results, but to different degrees. If you’re looking for more in-depth options, like complex navigation and sequencing, you need to opt for SCORM 2004. Fortunately, most SCORM converters enable you to output content in any of the SCORM versions.
