  • Some people were having trouble figuring out at what folder level to zip the files in order to create a SCORM package.

    Here is the Help text from the LCDS.  In the section of Help called Publishing and Distribution the topic About Publishing to an LMS.

    About Publishing to an LMS

    In order to prepare your content for hosting on a Learning Management System (LMS), you will need to compress (or zip) your course folder (for Windows XP users, your course folder is located at C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Learning\LCDSc\courses\<your course's name>\course; for Windows Vista users, your course folder is located at C:\ProgramData\Microsoft Learning\LCDSc\courses\<your course's name>\course). The resulting zipped folder represents a SCORM 1.2 Package. This means that your content is SCORM-compliant and can be hosted on a Learning Management System (LMS).  When hosted on an LMS, your course content will not be associated with the viewer that displays in Preview mode; rather it will display in the viewer that is used by the hosting LMS. The following image shows the content areas that would be picked up by the hosting LMS. Note that the lower navigation (for topics) and My Notes area are included with the hosted content.

    You may also want to try checking out Blackboard to see if they have any useful infromation.

  • I was trying to zip C:\ProgramData\Microsoft Learning\LCDSc\courses\<your course's name>\course and LMS cant fire this package...
    All what I can - it save zip archive to local disk.
    I have LCDS v2.3. If You know how to make it works please tell me.
