CREATING A VIDEO
Creating a video is extremely simple. There are three different types of video courses you can create depending on where your video is hosted or streamed from.
- Generic Video
To get started creating a video course, expand the slide menu and select a video type to get started.
You are given several options to customize how your video will behave.
Setting the threshold will determine when the video will be considered complete. For example, setting a threshold of 50% will mean the video is considered completed at the half-way mark of the video. If your video is 2 minutes long, you are considered complete at the one minute mark. The default setting is 99%.
SHOW STATUS INDICATOR
When true, a status indicator will be displayed on the course letting the user know if they are complete or incomplete for the course. When the user crosses over the completion threshold, the status will change to completed. If the user is already complete for the course when launching, that status will be reflected in the status bar to avoid confusion.
SCORMify gives you the ability to determine the look of your course. if you have created a custom style, you are able to select it. We also provide a default style that is available for you to use.
