There are very few formats in the corporate sector as widespread as the PDF. Whether in the field of training or internal communication, transmitting your know-how through documents or PDF presentations is still a common practice, although not the most convenient.
Why? The answer is simple. It is a format that is very difficult to work with. If you want to edit a PDF, you have to use specialized programs, mostly paid. And, most importantly, it can affect the effectiveness of training, as it is a document with practically zero interactivity.
Discover why you should convert your old PDFs into SCORM to achieve maximum efficiency in your e-learning processes.
Benefits of converting PDF to SCORM
Adapting your older formats to those that offer you more opportunities for engagement can only bring benefits. Here are some of them:
- Integrate your content with any LMS
As you know, the acronym SCORM refers to one of the most used standards in the e-learning industry. Its main objective is that this content can be distributed without problems via any learning platform (Moodle, Canvas, OKN Learning etc.) You also get maximum operability, since both the trainer and the student can access your e-learning content 24/7.
- Follow the progress of your training
You can access the results of your users and find out what aspects to improve, what content is unclear and more. It also allows you to see how much time your students invest in completing each piece of training and adapt them to their progress later—a useful feature for e-learning evaluation.
- Offers maximum interactivity
Unlike traditional PDFs, in SCORM courses you can add elements that capture your audience’s attention much more. Presenting the content in an original way through audios, videos or exercises will facilitate learning, the absorption of knowledge and, without a doubt, will differentiate your e-learning course from the rest, increasing your engagement.
