Parser Warnings


SCORM defines a very strict, rigid format when it comes to what should be in a manifest and what it will accept. A manifest is like a technical table of content for the SCORM course. In most environments, an imperfect manifest will cause a course to fail. We’re not fans of that, so we built SCORM Cloud to be flexible and accommodate imperfect manifests.

When you import a course into SCORM Cloud, we analyze your manifest and try to point out any imperfections we find. We refer to those errors as parser warnings. Sometimes they are  harmless warnings, but other times we could be pointing out something that could potentially stop your course from working in another LMS. If you notice your course behaving strangely check your parser warnings.  


Think of it this way, parser warnings are like the warning lights on your car’s dashboard. When they come on, most times you are still able to drive your car normally but you may want to check out the manual, just to see what the fuss is about.

If you see a parser warning that you just aren’t sure about, send us an email. We’d be happy to help you figure out what’s going on.
