Scorm error

May 07, 2014

Hi all,

I just upgraded to Moodle 2.6 and now I can't seem to upload a scorm Storyline course. 

Here is the error:

An imsmanifest.xml file was found but it was not in the root of your zip file, please re-package your SCORM

Any thoughts?

that error suggests that you zipped the SCORM package yourself instead of relying on Articulate to do it.

here's an excerpt from the Moodle SCORM FAQ:

  • imsmanifest.xml needs to be immediately inside the scorm directory, NOT inside a directory inside of that. So if the zipped scorm package is, the unzipped package directory should contain immediately inside of it the imsmanifest.xml. This is a common mistake and normally occurs when a SCORM author creates a package themselves and then selects that folder to compress. This places the content folder inside of another folder, The imsmanifest.xml is there, but it is 2 directories deep. To avoid this problem when zipping scorm content into a package, go INSIDE of the exported scorm folder, select all files inside, and compress them while all are selected. The resultant compressed directory has the imsmanifest.xml file in the first directory, immediately available to the moodle scorm loading process.
