Creating a new version of your course via FTP


I’m sure you all know that you can upload large courses into SCORM Cloud using FTP or FTPS. If you took the time to get your course into SCORM Cloud, we want you to be able to easily create a new version of that course. (*Updated March 1st, 2021: Please note that we don't currently support Filezilla.)

Before you get started, you will need to:

1. Log in to your SCORM Cloud account
2. Click the Apps tab
3. Choose (or create) your App and click “Show AppID”
4. Write that AppId down (note that the default SCORM Cloud application is listed as "SCORM Cloud")
5. Click the Library tab
6. Choose the course you are making changes to and copy the CourseId from the URL for use later.

Now that you have that, you can:

1. Open your FTP Client of choice- I’m using Cyber Duck

2. Enter the SCORM Cloud FTP URL: into the Host space

3. Enter your SCORM Cloud username and password in their respective spaces

4. Choose your Realm from the Directory

5. Locate the AppId you wrote down in the directory

6. Drop the course in the "Uploads" folder.

8. Go back to SCORM Cloud and click “Import from your FTP Space” in the blue Add Content box


Choose your App from the drop-down menu and click import next to the course name. You'll also have the ability to specify a CourseID.


That’s all there is to it. You will see that you've created a new version of your course. You can then choose how you want to handle existing registrations from the drop down on the course page.  If you have any questions or need some help, let us know.
