Note before we start this set of instructions all course must be uploaded and tested in the Test database provided by Systems Division.  Link is located HERE

Step 1: Create your Course with your authoring tool.  We only use ADOBE Captivate so these are the settings we are providing.

Do not create the SCORM file until you have completed Step 5

Step 2Create a Course in SF Learning (Job Aid Linked here) following the Naming convention rule - 3 digit Department Code and a code with meaningful information following such as CON0PR101

CON = Controller's Office

0 = System's Division

PR = Procurement

101 = Entry Level Procurement course for new users


Step 3: Select the Delivery Method for the Class.  This is the mode the class will delivered to the learners such as web-based or virtual classroom.  This selection will control how the learner sees and interacts with the course and class.  Web-based courses will have a launch button if all the correct selections are made during setup.


Step 4: Create the Class - We highly recommend you continue using the coding you used in Step 2 when creating the Course.  For instance, CON0PR101 (course) would now become CON0PR101-031421.  If we chose the web-based delivery method the date would give us the version upon a glance.  If this we where delivering a virtual class we may use CON0PR101-031421ILT which would denote "Instructor Led Training".


Step 5Create the Component (Job Aid Linked here) Keep in mind all of this information will show to the Learners so try to make it understandable for them


Step 6: Now Add the information you created to the Course you created in the Authoring tool base on the Job Aid below.

The next steps are outlined in the Job Aid attached below

Step 7: Create the SCORM File 

Step 8: Upload the SCORM File to the FTP site.

Step 9: Create a Ticket

Step 10: Add the URL that will be provided to you from your ticket to the component

Step 11: Upload the IMSMANIFEST file to the system

Step 12: Test your course

Repeat these steps in the Production Database once your course is thoroughly tested in the Test database provided by System's Division.
