How to create SCORM from PDF to revamp your online trainings

scorm pdf blog

There are few formats in the corporate sector that are as widely used as PDF. Whether in the field of training or internal communications, transmitting your know-how through PDF documents or presentations is still a common practice… although not the most convenient.

Why is that? It’s simple. This format is very difficult to work with. If you want to edit it, you must use specialized, mostly fee-based programs. And, most notably, it can undermine the effectiveness of the training since the document offers virtually no interactivity.

Discover why you should transform your old PDFs into SCORM to maximize efficiency in your e-learning processes. Let’s get started!

Benefits of transforming PDF to SCORM

Just as if you convert SCORM from PowerPoint, you’ll greatly benefit from adapting your older formats to more effective ones. Here are some of the advantages:

You can integrate your content with any LMS

As you know, the acronym SCORM refers to one of the most widely used standards in the e-learning industry. Its main objective is to distribute content seamlessly through any learning platform (Moodle, Canva, isEazy LMS, among others). This way, you’ll maximize efficiency since both trainer and student can access your e-learning content 24/7.

You can follow up on the training progress

You can access the results of your users and find out which aspects to improve, which content is not clearly understood and so on. It also allows you to check how much time your learners spend on each course, and later adapt it to their progress, which is very useful for an effective e-learning assessment.


It provides the highest interactivity

Unlike the traditional PDF format, with SCORM courses you can add elements that better catch the attention of your audience. Presenting content in an original way through audio, videos or exercises will ease learning and knowledge acquisition and make your e-learning course stand out from the rest, increasing learner engagement. Every trainer’s dream!
