What are the technical requirements for a picture accompanying the modules?

  • Pictures must be in png or jpeg formats and under 10 mb

  • Best results will be achieved if an image is in 16:9 aspect ratio, and without text on the image edges as it may be cropped

  • You can use numerous online tools to adapt our images to 16:9 format 

What are the main technical requirements to consider when creating SCORM files?

  • SCORM modules need to be created in SCORM 1.2 format

  • Modules with a quiz need to have a pass condition ”percentage of score“ and set to 75% or higher

  • Modules without a quiz need to have a pass condition ”slides viewed“ and set to 100%

Is there a place where I can test the modules before uploading them to your platform?

Our recommendation is to sign up for a free service called SCORM Cloud, where you can upload the modules and test them out. Follow these few steps to test out the modules once you register:


  1. Click on Add Content and choose SCORM package

  2. Click on Choose file/Browse, find the file and select it.

  3. Click on Import Course

  4. Once the course has uploaded, you will see this screen

  5. Click on Launch and that will launch the module preview the way a learner would see it

  6. If you receive a “Popup Blocked” message, enable popups by clicking on the icon in the upper right corner:


Are the uploaded files scanned for malware?

Yes, uploaded files are scanned for malware (the module and its image). Once you see the green box (for module and image) with the checkmark, it is ok to proceed to the next step after upload, which is assigning a module to a campaign.
