Certified Authoring Tools

An authoring tool, or system, is a program that has pre-programmed elements for the development of interactive multimedia software titles. Authoring systems can be defined as software that allows its user to create multimedia applications for manipulating multimedia objects.

What Authoring Tools can be used with the Accord LMS?

The Accord LMS is compliant for Shareable Content Objects (SCO) and can utilize any content produced by a modern SCORM authoring tool. This list below is just a sample of some of the most popular authoring tools.

Should you have a specific brand of authoring tool you'd like to use to help create various types of Learning Elements for your Learning Catalog and do not see their name itemized on the list below, please send a message to our support crew and ask if it meets the necessary requirements to successfully integrate with your Accord LMS.

To send a message to our support crew, or for any professional assistance with your Accord LMS, please contact; Accord LMS Support.

Accord LMS System Compliance

SCORM is a communications protocol, a set of specific messages that can be passed between a Shareable Content Object (SCO) and the LMS.

Most SCORM implementations are fairly complete in terms of basic grading. For example, all SCOs provide enough information to understand both the discrete answer score and the cumulative score. Most authoring tools produce SCORM quizzes that provide both the Question text and the Answer text. 

Accord recommends you user-test a trial version of any authoring tool to make sure it is reporting all the information you need to evaluate your learners and the content you are creating.

Test your Authoring Tool

The best way to test the performance of your authoring tools and the output SCO is to utilize the free SCORM conformance testing and reporting tool at; SCORM Cloud

Simply create a free account and upload your SCO.
