Scorm for Ipad

Sep 15, 2011

Hello everyone
I want to make the SCORM without flash, but using articulate so as to be visible on the iPad.
There is a possibility that Articulate realize a software update to allow this possibility?

Hi Iron & welcome to Heroes,

Thank you for expressing your interest in using Articulate content on mobile devices that do not support Flash, such as Apple's iPad / iPhone.  We are actively working on having Articulate content play on devices that support HTML5 only like Apple iOS devices.

You may be able to use the following HTML5 player to view your Articulate content on non-Flash devices.  Please note that this method was not developed by Articulate and is not supported by Articulate: 

Another possible option for iPad users is to view Articulate content with the iSWiFter app as demonstrated below.  Please note that this method is not supported by Articulate.

If your Articulate content does not include interactive elements (such as quizzes or user-initiated navigation), you can record your Articulate content as it plays, using a screencasting tool like Screenr (, to capture a video of your Articulate content.  Screenr screencasts can be viewed on iPads and iPhones directly from the Screenr website.  There are also options to publish your Screenr screencasts to YouTube and to download MP4 versions of your screencasts, both of which also play on non-Flash devices.

For additional ideas regarding mobile learning, we recommend reviewing the following Rapid E-Learning Blog post:

thanks for the reply.

Currently I use Articulate. I am very satisfied by the product.

you say
"We are actively working for Articulate play the content on devices that only support HTML5 IOS devices such as Apple."

I want to use solutions that are supported by Articulate for viewing my scorm of devices such as iPad / iPhone.
You have some information about when you can use to reproduce the Articulate SCORM on devices that only support the HTML5?

I will try to test the solutions  that You
suggest me.

Thanks again for the support

Heya All,

So just tested iSwifter on my iPad2... and guess what.... it works (can I get a whoop whoop!)

I'm currently implementing an LMS (Saba) for an organisation in Australia that has had no online learning in the past.

I tested this on a basic (no vid, no narration) training packages that was embeded in the LMS and it worked a treat. even had sound for the engage interactions (clickity click).

I'm guessing that the way that iswifter works is similar to a citrix virtual environment, your LMS and interface tends to change in look (slightly clunky) but it works =D

Keep in mind that you would need to have a pretty good internet connection to make richer elearning contnent work.

The training package was not as sexy as it would usually be on a PC/Mac but it did the Job.

This is a worth while consideration for anyone out there not wanting to waste time converting everything from flash based learning to html etc.

If anyone comes across other apps similar to this keep me posted =D
