    Unpack SCORM package?

    We are trying to migrate from one VLE to another ... the old VLE will only let us extract our resources in SCORM format.

    This is a ZIP file containing (amongst other things), the files/folders we want, stored in a rather confusing maner.. along with an XML Manifset file for the ZIP folder.


    Does anyone know of a scrpit that can be run on a SCORM package to query the XML manifest file and recompile the files/folders in a normal "windows" layout? (I.e, return the content back to how it was before it was stuck into a SCORM package.)


    I can supply a ZIP SCORM package if anyone is willing to have a look?

    Which VLE are you using?

    In Moodle when setting up a course you are able to choose a certain way to show the course, SCORM is one of them. Select this if using Moodle and select the SCORM package you wish to use. Once you have ran through the course settings, name, type etc it will then extract for you and your course will be laid out in a SCORM layout (which is often better than most manual ones).

    I'd believe whichever VLE you are using they will have a similar setup, try adding a new course and looking through the various options until you come across SCORM.

    Hope this helps

    *edit* SCORM will self extract onto your VLE through the SCORM options. Once you get the idea it's a brilliant way to put plenty of content onto your VLE

    Steve, thankyou for your response, that is now I had assumed it should work.

    It sounds like this is a question I need to ask my VLE provider.....As it does not work as it should
