how to devlop code in forma? and integrate scorm?

Post by Remi » Fri Apr 21, 2017 2:26 pm

How do you actually integrate SCORM within Forma LMS? Where do you implement the code as a developer's stand point?

Thanks!

Hi Remi,
what do you mean by integrating scorm?
Forma Lms is a Scorm-compliant Lms. You create a scorm object with whatever tool you want (there's one million different tools, ranging from $ 0 to several thousands dollars) and you upload it to Forma.
You do that in Learning Object Management > new LO > scorm > upload

Remi,
just enter a course (in the front end section, as a teacher or administrator) and click on the teacher area > LO management

Forma LMS is a Scorm compliant LMS, but how do i edit the look and feel of the website? or essentially upload my code into Forma. I've read the manual inside and out. There isn't much there for a developers perspective.

You edit the look and feel of the website by manually editing the .css files in the template. In the same folder (the one where the templates are stored) you can replace the company logo, the login image and the favicon. Currently there is no way to do that via the interface.

What does "upload my code into Forma" mean? It doesn't mean much, to me. Are we talking about the GUI, about functional changes or about what?

The manual is a user's or administrator's manual, not a developer's manual.

From Forma 1.3, we support plugins. We also have API's (you can easily find them on this forum). Therefore, if you develop plugins or want to take advantage of the API's you can do it.

Gui is one thing, functional changes are another...
Anyway, the templates are in the folder called "templates". Just take a look at the installation folders and you'll find it.

I understand this Max.. I appreciate all your help. I am essentially new to using Forma LMS. I'm trying to maintain another persons work on this platform, and am unable to really navigate through a lot of this. As a developer i normally develop a website from scratch so essentially using Forma LMS is like simplifying the process, but trying to figure out how to navigate through this stuff is extravagant. Are there like any tutorials, or videos, or something i can watch to get some assistance. I've looked at moodle in comparison, and it has a bunch of documents/a get hub for the developer. Any real guidance you can give me to get to a starting point would be exquisite.

Thanks and i hope you are having a blessed one!
