Q: I downloaded a zip folder with a SCORM package in it, I am unable to view the contents. Is it possible to view the SCORM package?

Answer: SCORM, or Sharable Content Object Reference Model, is a specification for how a set of files are packaged and played.  A SCORM file is really an archive or compressed set of files.  To view the content of the SCORM file with the extension “zip”, uncompress the file, by clicking on it, through a file menu, or tool such as Winzip on Windows and unzip on a Mac.  If the file extension is not “zip”, rename it to “zip” first.  To run a SCORM file, you need a SCORM player, which is included with many Learning Management Systems (LMS).  You can also run a SCORM file in a more limited way from your web browser by clicking on the launch HTML file, which might be named index.html, story_html5.html, or similar.
