Scorm-integrated platform for small biz?

My small 2-person organisation is looking to set up an e-platform to run about 10 paid courses. I have tried all the usual suspects like Teachable, Kajabi, etc but only one (LearnWorlds) allows me to embed SCORM courses, but does not integrate with the platform - meaning I can't actually capture learner responses - they go into an e-learning black hole. Not helpful. They all feature quizzes as part of their package - but no other interactivity. snore.

Anybody have any platform ideas for just conducting a few courses on pay-as-you-enroll basis? One that is economical to host?

LearnDash and LifterLMS are Wordpress LMS plugins that can both track xAPI courses. I know you asked for SCORM, but publishing from SL to xAPI isn't really much different, and you can actually track responses that way. Both of those are fairly affordable options, even when you take into account hosting and other plugins.

I have tried Coggno in the past, they are good people. I am not sure if the LMS capability tracking is there but give it a try and see. They continually make efforts at improving.

Hi Nancy,

I've had a similar experience.  I just started using LearnWorlds and am trying to make Rise 360 work.  The issue is that Rise 360 will also import the course menu, duplicating my LMS menu.  I've been advised to use Storyline 360 instead, but the learning curve looks steep.

Did you ever get Articulate to work inside of LearnWorlds?

Hi Kathy - I have several clients who use Thinkific and express the same challenge. I advise them to hide the menu sidebar) in Rise. I would think the same would apply to LearnWorlds.

Nancy - have you looked at - I think you can upload SCORM. Thinkific is an easy one to get started and you can host your courses there, although it's not SCORM compatible. I agree with other suggestions: TalentLMS is a bit more "out of the box" and LearnDash if you are able to manage some technical aspects. 

Hope that helps!

Hi Holly,

Thanks so much for sharing this information.  Very helpful!  I have tried to hide the sidebar, but there is also the issue of the entire course counting as 1 activity in my LMS (and, therefore, I can't track activity completion rates properly).

I'm Zooming with someone who was able to get it to work.  If I learn anything new, I'll share in this thread.

So thankful for your quick response!
