In Absorb, Admins can easily replace SCORM, AICC or TinCan lessons with updated versions of the same lessons. You can use this tool to update internally created content or content created by third-party vendors.
Note: Replacing a lesson will affect any new enrollments, however users that have already completed the course will not have to take the lesson again. Any users that have an In Progress status will have to start the lesson from the beginning again, as their progress will be lost due to the new content replacing the old.
Follow these steps to replace a SCORM, AICC or TinCan course:
- Sign in to your Admin Portal. Select Courses from the Course options to see a list of courses.
2. Locate and select the course you want to edit and then choose Edit from the list of Actions on the right side of the screen.
3. On the Syllabus tab, locate the title of lesson you want to update and below the lesson title, select Add Learning Object. A new window will display.
4. In the new window, select the learning object type that you will use to replace your current lesson. (In this example, we are replacing an AICC course with another AICC course, but you could do this with SCORM 1.2, SCORM 2004, or TinCan.) . Then click Next.
5. After clicking Next, you can choose whether this lesson should be uploaded to a private or public folder. By choosing a private folder, only Users with credentials to your portal are permitted access to the content. If you choose the public folder - then the file is available to anyone who has the address even if they are not signed in to Absorb
6. Then, in Update Options, choose Replace an existing lesson. Choosing this choose the less you want replaced from a drop-down list. Then choose the course package you want to upload, and click Continue.
7. Once the progress completes, select Continue again and your lesson will be uploaded. The page will refresh and include the updated (replacement) lesson. Be sure you save all your changes by clicking Save in the right-hand navigation menu.
It is important to note that when uploading (replacing) third-party content, the changes will not be reflected in the Course History.
You can view information on the replacements from content not created by a third-party vendor (or any other historical changes to the course) in the Course History. To view the Course History, return to the course Edit page. The option to view the Course History is available on the right side of the screen on the course Edit page.
