General Notes:

  • These wrappers are designed to be SCORM version-neutral (they work
    with both SCORM 1.2 and SCORM 2004). They also require the pipwerks
    SCORM API JavaScript wrapper in the course’s HTML file. The
    wrapper can be downloaded from the downloads page.
  • These classes uses ExternalInterface. Testing in a local environment will FAIL unless you set your Flash Player settings to allow local SWFs to execute ExternalInterface commands. Change your security settings using this link.
  • These works are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License.
  • Use at your own risk! These classes are provided as-is with no implied warranties or guarantees.

ActionScript 2.0 SCORM API wrapper notes:

  • FLAs published using this file must be published using AS2.
  • This class uses ExternalInterface:
    SWFs published using this class will only work in Flash Player 8 or higher.

ActionScript 3.0 SCORM API wrapper notes:

  • FLAs published using this file must be published using AS3; SWFs published using this class will only work in Flash Player 9 or higher.

Relationships/Mapping

The following table of methods (functions) assumes you have declared the SCORM instance using the variable name scorm:

var scorm:SCORM = new SCORM();
Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

Note about syntax:

  • You may replace scorm with any variable name you wish, such as var myScormData:SCORM = new SCORM();. I just think it’s easier to stick to the acronym scorm.
  • You cannot use the variable name SCORM (all uppercase) in AS3, such as

    var SCORM:SCORM = new SCORM();

    Doing so will return an error. Using scorm (all lowercase) works fine.
