Load SCORM packages into Open edX courses

Project description

Abstract Scorm XBlock

Yet another SCORM XBlock for Open edX®.

Supports course export/import. Editable within Open edx Studio. Saves student state and reports scores to the progress tab of the course. Currently supports SCORM 1.2 and SCORM 2004 standards.

Developed by Abstract Technology, based on edx_xblock_scorm by Raccoon Gang .


Install package with

pip install abstract-scorm-xblock


  • Add abstract_scorm_xblock to the list of advanced modules in the advanced settings of a course.
  • Add a scorm component to your Unit.
  • Upload a zip file containing your content package. The imsmanifest.xml file must be at the root of the zipped package. Make sure you don't have an additional directory at the root of the zip archive.
  • Publish your content as usual.



To setup the development environment:

  • create a Python3 virtualenv. If direnv is installed a direnv allow should be enough.
  • install derex with pip install -r requirements.txt
  • setup the derex project. Read the documentation for further informations.

Development and Debugging

In order to be able to develop and debug effectively some steps may be taken:

  • get a shell inside the container:

    cd derex_project
    ddc-project exec cms sh
  • setup the package in editable mode. This will allow for testing changes without the need to reinstall the package:

    pip install -e /openedx/derex.requirements/abstract_scorm_xblock
  • launch the Django debug server manually and bind it on port 81:

    python cms runserver 0:81
  • on your browser https://studio.scorm.localhost:81 should now be available. You should now be able to insert debug code in both Python and JS files and benefit from Django runserver auto reload feature.

Running tests

Tests can be run from the derex project directory by running:

ddc-project run --rm lms python lms test abstract_scorm_xblock --keepdb

The first time this command is run it will initialize the test database. Remove the --keepdb flag if you want the test database to be created/destroyed each time.


  • If a SCORM package is deleted from the course "Files & Uploads" section, the Import/Export functionality will export a course with a broken XBlock.


  • Delete extracted old SCORM packages from default storage
