A SCORM Debugger / testing tool for all types of elearning content

Upload your content in SCORM 1.2 or SCORM 2004 format and start debugging it like a true professional!

With the SCORM Debugger you will be able to view your content as if it were hosted in an LMS.

  • You have a console that will display all SCORM interactions sent or received from LMS.
  • The SCORM panel will display the value of all SCORM variables in real time.
  • And if your content is created with Articulate Storyline®, you’ll be able to see all of your project’s internal variables in the Debugger!

Use cases

  • Quality assurance for e-learning content

    SCORM Debugger can be used by e-learning developers to test and validate their SCORM-compliant content before it is released to the public. This ensures that the content is free of errors and functions as intended, providing a better user experience for learners.

  • Troubleshooting & Debugging

    E-learning administrators and developers can use SCORM Debugger to troubleshoot issues with SCORM-compliant content. For example, if a learner is reporting an error or difficulty with a particular module, the developer can use SCORM Debugger to identify the problem and make necessary adjustments.

  • Compliance checking

    Use SCORM Debugger to ensure that an organization’s e-learning content meets the SCORM standard, which is often required for compliance with regulations or industry standards.

  • Optimization

    You can optimize the performance of SCORM-compliant content thanks to SCORM Debugger. This includes identifying areas where the content can be improved, such as reducing load times or increasing the responsiveness of interactive elements. This can lead to a better user experience and increased engagement with the content.

The SCORM Debugger is compatible with the most popular e-learning authoring tools:

Articulate Storyline
Adobe Captivate

Content repository

SCORM Debugger's Content Repository

Organize your content

All content that you upload to the SCORM Debugger can be organized into folders and subfolders. This allows you to keep all of your content ordered and classified according to your needs.

Manage and administrate your content

When you upload content, the SCORM Debugger will detect if it is a SCORM 1.2 or SCORM 2004 package. It will also try to detect which e-learning authoring tool the content was developed with. The date and time you uploaded your content and the number of times you have updated it (version number) will be shown at all times.

In addition to uploading new content, you can also update it, move it to other folders or delete it when you no longer need it.

SCORM debugging features

Event console

The console shows a full and detailed log of all events while you play SCORM content:

  • Calls to LMSGetValue (SCORM 1.2) or GetValue (SCORM 2004).
  • Calls to LMSSetValue (SCORM 1.2) or SetValue (SCORM 2004).
  • Other SCORM calls, such as LMSInitialize, LMSCommit, etc.
  • In the case of content created with Storyline, a log of the changes in the project variables will be displayed.

Moreover, you can export the record to Excel or copy it to the clipboard and take it wherever you want at any time.

Real-time SCORM tracking

The real-time SCORM tracking status can be checked at any time while you are viewing the content.

Check that your content sends the correct tracking information, such as the time spent, score, or number of interactions during practice activities.

You can also delete the tracking information at any time if you wish to reset the content to its initial state.

SCORM variables tracking
SCORM Debugger's Restore points

Create restore points

While viewing content, you can save a snapshot of the current state of your content, so you can retrieve it later on, anytime you want.

This is very useful for testing long or complex courses; you can save multiple restore points to different parts of your content so you can go back to them at any time if you need to perform a test.

When you return to a saved restore point, all SCORM variables and the state of your content will be restored to its current state, including the “suspend_data” variable.

Other features of SCORM Debugger

Share your SCORM content

You can invite guests to view and test each piece of content uploaded to the debugger remotely. These guests will have access to your content, the SCORM event console, as well as to the value of all SCORM variables, but they will not be able to create restore points or have access to other features that are only available to the owner user.

This is the perfect solution for collaborating on your projects with clients, testing teams, or other colleagues. You can receive feedback from them and view the SCORM tracking tasks of each guest to better refine your content.

In addition, you can specify whether you want to allow guests to download the SCORM file with the content or not. This is perfect for sharing your projects with clients without the need to use WeTransfer or other methods if you need to send the content to them.

Sharing contents in SCORM Debugger

Exclusive SCORM Debugger features of Articulate Storyline

If you develop your content with Articulate Storyline, you’ll love this …

Monitor your Storyline variables live

While viewing content, you can see the value of all internal Storyline variables used in the project in real time. But not only this, you can also change the value of any variable from the debugger! This is particularly useful to perform tests without having to start playing the content again.

You can also add Storyline variables to the Favorites panel, so you can track the variables that matter the most to you more accurately.

Take control with break points

Do you want the SCORM Debugger to notify you when there is a change in one of your Storyline variables?

You can create rules, so that the content stops or shows a warning if a certain condition occurs, for example:

  • When the value of a variable has changed
  • When a variable is equal to, less than, or greater than a certain value

With this feature, you don’t have to worry about a variable suddenly changing its value and not realizing it …
