D2L - Importing a SCORM Learning Object and associating with a grade item (UW-Madison)


UW-Madison is adopting Canvas as the single, centrally supported learning management system, and discontinuing support for Desire2Learn (D2L) and Moodle. Access to D2L and Moodle will permanently end June 1, 2018. For information about retaining materials from D2L or Moodle, please refer to this document.

SCORM content, such as lectures or quizzes created in Captivate, Articulate, Storyline, or Camtasia, can be imported into D2L for enhanced tracking and grading.

Import a SCORM Learning Object

  1. Click Course Admin > Edit Course
  2. Click Import/Export/Copy Components.
  3. Select Import Components, and browse for the zipped package file. This will be the .zip file you created when you published from your authoring tool (like Captivate or Camtasia). Click Start.
  4. An Import Options screen will display. Enter a name for the folder you wish the object to be imported to. Use a new folder each time the exercise is updated. Check  Import Metadata, as well as all of the associated "components" for the Content outline. Click Continue:
