Question about whether it is beneficial to update the Course or SCO Identifier and Title fields when sharing a common cptx project as a starting point for all courses.
Hello! I tried asking this question early in the week, but for some reason it did not post. Here’s attempt number two…
Our team shares a cptx file that we use as a course “template” – it’s not a Captivate template file type, however. Any time we go to create a new course, we pull this common cptx from our controlled documents library, paste in our new slides, author the simulations, etc., and then publish the file. (We create solely software simulations.) We add in scored interactive items (usually click boxes) toward the end of each individual assessment simulation, and we publish these as SCORM packages for upload to our LMS. Note: Sometimes clients will need these for their own LMS as well. Historically, we’ve published as SWF, but are moving to HTML5 only very soon (not that this is super relevant to the question – just trying to paint the picture of what we do).
My question is around the publishing part. Within the Quiz Settings, if you click Configure the Manifest dialog is displayed. I’m wondering, is it generally best practice to edit the information found in these fields? I’m attaching a snip for reference:
We typically have not edited this information (Course Identifier, Course Title, SCO Identifier, SCO Title). Is there any specific reason why we should (or should not) modify this information?
Any info is helpful. Thanks!
