Test SCORM Courses with an LMS

Tony Karrer

I was just asked by someone about how they could test a course they were creating against a particular Learning Management System (LMS) (in this case Docent 6.5). We don't have direct access to a version of the LMS to test on. The client's staff won't give us direct access to the LMS to run tests. The client has not set up a version of the LMS just for this purpose. We'll have to figure out what this LMS does different than the SCORM test suite."
