All course content is uploaded and stored in the Content Packages section, and courses are created from this content. Our content section accepts SCORM packages (through the “Upload Package” function), videos in mp4, ogv, and webm format (through the “Import Video” function), PowerPoint presentations (through the “Import PowerPoint” function), and PDFs (through the “Import PDF” function).To update the properties of an existing content package, click on the name of the content package in the list. To create a course from a content package, click “Import This Package” at the top of the modification page for that specific content package. This will create a course in the Courses section. Note: If the package import fails, it is usually either because the package is larger than 2GB(our file size limit), or there is an issue with the manifest file in the SCORM package. Be sure that the name of the package does not have any special characters in it, nor are there any special characters in the <title></title> line of the manifest file.
Quizzes & Surveys
The Acendre Learning system provides a quiz and survey authoring tool for those who wish to create a quick quiz or survey, either as a standalone session to be displayed on the Catalog page, or to be attached to a module within a course. Clicking the button on the top right corner of the Quizzes & Surveys box performs the same functionality as clicking “New Quiz/Survey” from the Quizzes & Surveys page. The “Identifier” will be the name of the SCORM package as it will appear in the Content Packages section. The “Title” will appear to users when they take the quiz or survey. Once you fill out the properties for a new quiz or survey, click “Create Quiz/Survey” to save it as a draft, or click “Create and Publish Quiz/Survey” to turn the quiz or survey into a content package and send the package created to the Content Packages section. To turn the Quiz or Survey into a stand-alone course, go to the Content Packages section, click on the name of the content package you created when you published the quiz or survey, and then click the “Import this Package” link at the top of the page. This will create a new course, which will pull its name from the Title of the quiz or survey. To use the quiz or survey in an already existing course, go to the Courses section, click on a course name and click “Create a new module” under the Actions section. In the “Content” tab, check the box next to “Content Package”, then click “Select Content Package”. Select the content package that contains the quiz or survey that you created, click “Select Content Package”, and then at the bottom of the page, click “Create Module”.
