We send you, on request, a set of SCORM objects for your titles. These are tiny ZIP packs containing an LMS manifest (an XML file used for making an output file can be applied for all LMS environment). You would usually save all these objects in your LMS shared repository so that any teacher / course creator can access them. Then when you are building a course, you import the one you want as a SCORM object. The manifest contains the information to point at your account and the program is still simply hosted on Clarity's server.

When a student accesses the course in the LMS for the first time they will be automatically registered so no extra login to the Clarity program is needed. The progress that the student makes will be passed back to the grade book of the LMS. Likewise a bookmark is saved so you can go through the object in multiple sessions.

The SCORM objects will be sent after you order but there are examples you can test with at any time. Click here for more information.

You have to have a learner-tracking licence to integrate with SCORM since the learner details are passed to the Clarity program (so it is not anonymous) and then the Clarity program sends progress data back to Moodle's built-in reports (so it is tracking). SCORM handles all login, so if a student has a Moodle account and is enrolled in a course that contains a unit from a Clarity program, they will automatically be able to run that unit. If it is their first time to do so, the Clarity program will add their details to the database and check off one licence. The same details will be picked up when the same student runs that program (from any Moodle course).

The first step is just to check that you are satisfied with the Moodle integration, so if you visit here and download one of the learning objects. You should then be able to import this as a SCORM object into a Moodle course. The actual software and content are all hosted on Clarity servers, with pointers going into your system. This keeps everything very small and tidy.

3. Are Clarity programs SCORM-compliant and how do they work with my Learning Management System (LMS)?

Many institutions are running Learning Management Systems (LMS), otherwise known as Virtual Learning Environments (VLE). Most of these follow a standard called SCORM, meaning that content published independently can be integrated into the LMS/VLE.

The huge advantages of this are that all learner information is held in one place, all progress reporting is standardised, yet institutions can use content from many publishers or sources.

Clarity programs are SCORM 1.2 compliant and SCORM 2004 compliant, so by using your LMS course builder modules you can add a link from your course direct to any particular section of the program.

You can download a sample content (a unit from Tense Buster) in the form of a SCORM learning object. You can import this into your LMS, and it will connect to the software and content running on our server. Your LMS will pass information to it and it will report back to the LMS.



Do let us know (support@clarityenglish.com) if you have any trouble doing this.

4. Can I and how do I integrate Clarity programs with the other teaching materials I am already using?

From a technical point of view, you can link to Clarity programs from your VLE / LMS using SCORM (see more details here). You can also directly link to the programs using web links from any system. From a pedagogical point of view, our syllabus documents on the teacher support site will let you cross-reference the contents of each program against your curriculum.

5. We would like to link directly to a particular unit in my program. How do we do that?

You can look at this documentation in our integration page that gives you full details on how to do this. It will show you how to build a URL link that goes directly to the unit you want.

This is easy to do as you can download some sample content (a unit from Active Reading, Business Writing, Road to IELTS or It's Your Job) in the form of a SCORM learning object. You can import this into your LMS, and it will connect to the software and content running on our server. Your LMS will pass information to it and it will report back to the LMS.



If your LMS supports objectives, you can now get detailed progress records. You don't need to do anything to get this new function if you are running with Clarity hosting. Please contact us (support@clarityenglish.com) to upgrade if you are self-hosting.

Most Clarity programs are SCORM-compliant, such as: Active Reading, Business Writing, Clear Pronunciation, Customer Service Communication Skills, English for Hotel Staff, It's Your Job, Study Skills Success, Tense Buster.

You can create your own content in Author Plus and publish it as a SCORM object. Do let us know (support@clarityenglish.com) if you have any trouble doing this.

Yes. You author your content as usual with Author Plus. Then you export it to SCORM. This creates the shared content object, SCO, that you then import into your LMS. Again, the SCO is just a set of pointers to the full program and content - so the LMS will link to your copy of Author Plus when the learner wants to run your content.

Whilst there are no hard rules, it seems to be a good idea to split SCOs into Author Plus units. This lets you group material together, whilst still preserving the goals of reuse and keeping everything manageable. So if you have created a whole course in Author Plus, you might turn it into a number of SCOs - which you can then import into different sections of your LMS-based course.

8. Is the Clarity Course Builder SCORM-compliant? If so, how do I get the SCORM objects?

This is a feature we are working on. You will be able to select a course and choose to export it for SCORM. This will create a ZIP file for each unit in the course. You can then import those units you want into your VLE / LMS.

Normally you start a Clarity program by logging in and choosing from a set of menus. However, sometimes a teacher will want learners to work on a particular section - and needs a way to direct the learners to this place. The learners might also have already logged into your system and you want to avoid logging in again. You can do this by passing information to the program when you start it.
