“Exporting” means that you are ready to convert your project into a format that can be understood by such platforms as Moodle, Desire2Learn, or Blackboard.
Optionally, you can always move your project folder onto a web server and link to the ‘index.htm’ file.
LodeStar 7.0 supports Export to SCORM 1.3 (SCORM 2004, Version 3), which is the latest standard as of this writing that is prevalent in Learning Management Systems. If you export to the SCORM 1.3 export type, typically you will look for a complementary import function in your Learning Management System. Consult with your Learning Management System vendor on how to import SCORM conformant content packages.
When you export, you are exporting the current project by default.
To export, click on the ‘Export’ button at the top left of the application. Then follow these steps:
Step One: Choose the export type from the combo box. Most likely, you will see only one export type: SCORM 1.3. If SCORM 1.3 is already selected, move on to the next step:
Step Two: Fill in a title for the Module. Fill in the other fields as well.
Step Three: Note the location where the export file (a zip file) will be saved.
Step Four: Click on the ‘Create Export’ button.
Nearly instantly, LodeStar will package all of the contents of your project into a zip file with a descriptive manifest that describes the contents to the learning management system.
Your next step is to log in to your learning management system and follow the procedure for importing SCORM learning objects.
