While Bridge accepts, uploads, and plays SCORM zip files, the performance of SCORM packages are impacted by the export settings of those packages. We recommend the following:

  • Use SCORM 2004 (4th edition) or SCORM 1.2 when creating projects to upload into Bridge
  • SCORM packages will only open a new window in Bridge. Currently, SCORM packages cannot open in an iframe in Bridge
  • Enable grade/score passback (quiz results tracking or slide view tracking)
  • Upload and test the SCORM package file as an end user

Note: The information below are specific settings we suggest using and do not include all settings/options available when publishing your SCORM package.
