How to add basic SCORM code to a Flash movie

Here’s a quick tutorial for adding basic SCORM functionality to an existing Flash file. This tutorial aims to demonstrate just how easy it can be to add SCORM functionality to an existing Flash movie.

Please note that this tutorial uses ActionScript 3 and SCORM 1.2, but the same principles apply for ActionScript 2 and SCORM 2004.

SCORM ActionScript 3 ZIP file fixed

A few people have contacted me to let me know the ZIP file for the SCORM ActionScript 3 example was missing the FLA file. Whoopsies! I’ve added the source files back to the FLA. You can download it from the downloads page. Thanks to everyone for letting me know.

SCORM wrapper examples tested successfully in SumTotal TotalLMS 7.6

The pipwerks SCORM wrapper examples have been successfully tested in SumTotal TotalLMS 7.6.

The JavaScript, ActionScript and HTML in the examples remain unchanged. If you’ve previously downloaded the examples, I suggest you download the updated versions to get the newer manifests. Of course, if you’re a pro at manifests (Aaron?), you could always make better ones… making the imsmanifest is my least favorite part of working with SCORM. As always, if you …
