"Hi Laura Moodle and Scorm aren't compatible. Moodle quizzes can be backed up and downloaded but the file type - an MBZ file - is I think only useful for uploading to another Moodle. I'm sorry this won't be the answer you were hoping…"

Looking for help with converting Moodle Quizzes so we can upload them to Saba or converting MS Word to Scorm 1.2 quizzes

Hi Laura,

Just saw your question on the webex chat re Flash training for Learning uses. We had the same issue and worked with a local e-learning development company who delivered a customised workshop for my team based around just the Flash interactions that we would use for creating e-learning rahter than a generic Flash course. They created templates to get us up and running. My guys are now flying and create some great content quickly and easily directly in Flash and have developed their skills further in the meantime - their previous backgrounds were f2f trainers and ILT design. Would be happy to discuss if you want to know more. Andy.
