SCORM and AICC compliance of Captivate 6 has been validated for a set of LMSs. We would be happy to add more LMSs to this list.
- If you are a Captivate user deploying courses on LMS and are interested in seeing your LMS in this list, ask your LMS vendor to get in touch with us at CaptivateLMSSupport@adobe.com.
- If you are an LMS vendor and want to get your LMS added to this list, you can get started with the validation program by performing the following steps:-
1. Download the sample SCORM and AICC courses – SampleCp6Courses.zip
2. Unzip the package and open TestCaseDetails.xls
3. Run the test cases listed in the excel sheet. Run all or specific test cases based on the type of SCORM support on your LMS. For example, if SCORM 2004 is not supported on your LMS then execute only SCORM 1.2 testcases on your LMS.
4. Verify all the test cases and add actual results in the excel sheet.
5. Send the report to CaptivateLMSSupport@adobe.com
We will check the report and get back to you if we find any exception. If the results are satisfactory, we will add your LMS in the list of validated LMSs.

Learning Management Systems (LMS) help you administer, track monitor, and report users’ interactions with your courses. Adobe Captivate lets you create SCORM-and-AICC-compliant courses that you can deploy on various LMSs.
This blog post summarizes the steps involved in making your Captivate courses work with LMSs.
Step 1. Configure your Captivate projects for your LMS
Here’s a video tutorial (3:25) that shows how to configure a project for the SCORM cloud LMS:

When I try to take Captivate SCORM course on some Learning Management Systems (LMS) which support both SCORM and AICC, Captivate SCORM course freezes on load with “Loading…” screen and does not move forward. This is usually seen with only few LMSs which support both SCORM and AICC. When I look at the SCORM API calls to LMS, I don’t see Initialize API being called at all. When dug deeper, I found that Captivate course was loaded as SCORM course by LMS but course was trying to make AICC calls. Continue reading…

On IE, Captivate 4, Action script 2 courses use FS Command as transfer mechanism and Actionscript 3 courses use External Interface based mechanism. Captivate 5 courses only support Actionscript 3 and use External Interface mechanism to transfer reporting data. For Actionscript 2 based courses FSCommand is best transfer mechanism and External Interface mechanism is the best for Actionscript 3 based courses.
So, moving from Local connection based data communication mechanism to External Interface based mechanism on Mozilla based browsers solves the inconsistent data reporting problem. There is simple one line change in SCORM html template which will make Captivate SCORM courses to use External Interface mechanism on Mozilla based browsers.
This issue will be fixed in the upcoming version of Captivate.
Please follow the steps described below. Same for both Captivate 4 and Captivate 5.
• Please go to $CaptivateInstallFolder/Templates/Publish/SCORM/1_2
• You will find Default.htm and Custom.htm
• Please go to line 31, “g_intAPIType = 1;” and change it to “g_intAPIType = 0;”
• Follow the same steps for the Default.htm and Custom.htm in folder $CaptivateInstallFolder/Templates/Publish/SCORM/2004
Modified SCORM1.2 HTML template for Captivate 5 is attached
Modified SCORM1.2 template is also shared on Acrobat.com Default.zip
