Learning Object: E-Learning Modules (All Types)

Follow

Introduction

This article includes instructions on adding an e-learning module Learning Object Type to an Online Course.

E-Learning Module Learning Object Types:

  • SCORM 1.2
  • SCORM 2004
  • Tin Can/xAPI
  • AICC

 

Important Note: E-Learning Module Assessments & Attempts

There can be two different attempt settings related to an e-learning module assessment

    • The “attempt” value established when creating the e-learning quiz in the content authoring tool (Example: Articulate Storyline)
    • The Maximum Attempts value within the Learning Object settings.

The attempt value dictated by the e-learning module’s published settings is the number of times a Learner can try to complete the quiz/assessment built within the module. The module’s independent rules track this value and its attempts. Absorb LMS does not manage this.

The Maximum Attempts Absorb LMS Learning Object setting is the number of times a Learner is allowed to launch the e-learning module. This value is independent of the e-learning module rules surrounding attempts to complete the quiz/assessment.
