SCORM Authoring Tools

In order to create a SCORM package that can be set up as a SCORM Module in your Course, you will first need a SCORM authoring tool. An authoring tool is an external software used to bundle different Course content media files (audio, video, PDF, PowerPoint, etc.) together in a SCORM package. Then that SCORM package can then be added to a Module and used in your Course. In this article, we will be going over several SCORM authoring tools available: iSpring, Adobe Captivate and Articulate 360. We also have includedlinks to the platforms for more information on free trials and how to purchase that software. 

Be sure to review our related guides to working with SCORM packages:

There are several tools to choose from when creating SCORM compliant courses. We recommend three authoring tools: iSpring, Adobe Captivate, and Articulate 360, with iSpring being our top choice.

Among iSpring's many advantages over other authoring tools, we recommend it for its ease of converting Microsoft PowerPoints to SCORM, as well as its great animation delivery.
