3. Manage your learning objects - On the same page where you upload your videos and documents, you can also manage your Learning Objects. See picture below. You can edit, delete and/or add your learning objects to a course.
4. Once all your learning Objects are uploaded into the Learning Management System, you can now set up your course. See creating/editing a course.
Important Additional Information
SCORM learning objects are not compatible with the following other learning objects: "Upload/Edit Files" and "Upload/Embed Video Lectures". Meaning: if you're creating a course in the Learning Management System and it contains a SCORM file that course can ONLY contain SCORM files.
At this time courses which contain SCORM learning objects will only be able to work with other SCORM learning objects in the same course. Consecutively, courses which contain media type learning objects (documents, images and videos) will only be able to be combined with other media type objects in the same course.
If you try to combine a course with SCORM learning objects and media type learning objects, the system will disallow it and will alert you.
Very Important - SCORM learning objects are not compatible with the following other learning objects: "Upload/Edit Files" and "Upload/Embed Video Lectures".
Definition of Embed in regards to YouTube and Vimeo - When you view a video on social media, often times you'll see an option to share the video. One way to share the video is to embed the video elsewhere. Youtube and Vimeo will offer a short piece of code that you can use to put into other pages.
Embed Video URL Privacy Settings
When using "Upload/Embed Video Lectures" and then selecting "Embed Video URL", the Learning Management System will retain any and all privacy settings that you have set on Vimeo or YouTube. This will ensure that videos that you have set as private will remain private.
