E-LEARNING PACKAGE AVAILABLE FOR UPLOAD TO YOUR INSTITUTION'S LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Below are two compressed zip folders containing the SCORM coding to enable you to upload the 'Introduction to the Prevent Duty as it affects higher education' e-learning into your institution's Learning Management System (LMS).
By doing this you will be able to track users as they work through the learning.
This task will need to be undertaken by someone in your institution who understands SCORM and who has access to the administration area of your LMS. Please note that there are a number of different LMS platforms. Below are two different types of SCORM zip file available through our e-learning platform so please make sure you have checked which version of SCORM (SCORM 2004 or SCORM 1.2) your LMS supports.
For those institutions that do not have an LMS but would like to host the e-learning within their internal web based systems, the e-learning can be embedded into a web page using an iframe similar to how you would embed a video. Please note that you will need access to the content management system (CMS) for your website to do this. The URL link to be embedded can be found below. Please note that using an iframe does not allow you to track user access or progress in the same way as the SCORM plugin - it is simply a way of displaying the e-learning on a web page, however you may be able to track some user data using Google Analytics.
Please note that the e-learning module will still be available through the Safe Campus
Communities website http://www.safecampuscommunities.ac.uk/training
What is SCORM?
SCORM is a set of technical standards for e-learning software products. SCORM tells programmers how to write their code so that it can “play well” with other e-learning software. It is the de facto industry standard for e-learning interoperability. Specifically, SCORM governs how online learning content and Learning Management Systems (LMSs) communicate with each other. SCORM does not speak to instructional design or any other pedagogical concern, it is purely a technical standard. For more information on SCORM please see link below.
Can institutions update the e-learning content?
Institutions will not be able to update the content. The Leadership Foundation will continue to undertake all content updates which automatically feed through to an institution's LMS.
What user data is currently being collected?
We are currently able to track the volume of users going through the Prevent e-learning via the Safe Campus Communities website, however it is not currently capturing any institutional data or personal information.
Does the Leadership Foundation or Safe Campus Communities provide technical or user support?
The decision to embed the e-learning via iframe or SCORM is for the institution to make and any technical or user requirements must be addressed by the institution directly.
Do I have to use SCORM/iframe?
The option to upload the e-learning introduction module into your institution's LMS is in addition to what is already available through Safe Campus Communities, and the e-learning will continue to be accessible through the website.
What browsers are compatible with the e-learning module?
The e-learning officially supports browsers back to Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 8.
It also provides limited support for Internet Explorer 7 (some minor functionality isn’t available due to technical restrictions).
Unfortunately it does not support Internet Explorer 6 or older browsers, as they don’t include the technologies required to allow responsive design, animations, videos and many other features that Learners would expect to see in modern e-learning software.
It fully supports iOS (iPad, iPhone) using Safari or Chrome, Android (Samsung, HTC etc) using Chrome, and Windows phones using Edge. In practice the e-learning will work very well on almost every smartphone, tablet and mobile browser.
Please note, on earlier versions of Internet Explorer, and some earlier iPhones, there may be minor visual differences (although the courses will still function).
Can participants undertake the module more than once?
Yes. In all forms of the module participants can go through the material as many times as they like. Once they reach the final page they will need to use the navigation icon in the top right hand corner to return to the start. This is referenced on the final page.
Does the module automatically save a participant’s progress?
Yes. If you are using the SCORM version, if a participant moves away from the module, or logs out of the LMS when they return the system should return them to the page that they were on when they left.
Which questions will a LMS display a score for?
To assist a participant with reflecting on their learning, the module is currently set up to score the five scenario questions in section 4 of the learning. This information can be captured via the SCORM integration if an institution requires it. The module is set up to consider a score of 80% and above as a ‘pass’. Please note that participants can go back through the material, and are able to re take the five scenario questions in section 4 however the score received is based on their first attempt at the module.
How much of the content needs to be viewed for the LMS to consider the course complete?
The module is set up to consider the course complete when 90% of the pages are viewed.
