Configure SCORM Settings
If your uploaded course was created with a SCORM file, you have the option to choose how you'd like the course to be presented to learners.
The Opens In setting defines how the initial launch of the course occurs. When the current window option is selected, the course will open in the same browser window the learner has been using to navigate Bridge. When the new window option is selected, the course will open in a new window, most likely with a prompt from the learner's pop-up blocker. When the new window with confirmation option is selected, the course will play in a new window after they click a confirmation prompt.
The Score Calculation setting can be configured for SCORM courses to use the average of all attempts or the latest attempt the learner has made to pass the course.
The Migrating Enrollments setting can be used to choose when and which group of learners will see the new version of a replaced course. When a learner’s enrollment in a SCORM course is migrated, the learner will see the new version of the course next time the learner launches the course. The options are:
- Never - learners will continue to see the original version
- Always - learners will see the new version next time the course is launched
- If Incomplete - learners who haven't completed the original version will start the new version next time the course is launched
- When Completed - learners will see the new version once the original version has been completed
- When Failed - learners will see the new version after a failed attempt to complete the orginal version has been made
- When Passed - learners will see the new version after the course has been completed and passed
