Using HTML5 Web Packages as Course Content

  • Updated

Use HTML5 web packages as well as SCORM 1.2 and 2004 as content for your lessons and courses.

Many content authoring tools provide HTML5 web package as an option for publishing. This format allows provides the structure needed for users to access content online. 

Once your HTML5 web package is exported as a zip file, you can upload it to your dashboard.

  1. Open your Skilljar dashboard and select Course Management.
  2. Select the course you want to add your content to.
  3. Select New Lesson and then SCORM / Web Package from the drop-down menu.


  4. Drag your file into the Content box or browse for the file to add it.
    • Note: The file must be a zip file.


  5. When you're finished, select Save Lesson to complete the upload.


Troubleshooting HTML5 

One thing to check if an HTML5 package is not working in Skilljar is to look at the files within the zipped package. Skilljar expects an index.html file in the root level of the zipped package, and if this is missing, the package will not load correctly for your students.


Most content publishing tools should allow you to rename this file if it defaults to a different name, or you can also change it manually by Unzipping the HTML5 package, renaming this file, and rezipping it before uploading it to Skilljar.
