MAXOS is great for local-only use but you do lose the bells and whistles of the server install such as the ability to collaborate as authors, the ability to set up an export feed so learners/users can subscribe to your Xerte Los and get instant updates and changes to Los.

I’m not experienced in the SCORM side so will leave others to comment but my preference would be to go for a server installation wherever possible. There are also people on this list who can set up hosted versions for a fee (it’s not me so there’s no commercial interest to declare!) if you needed to avoid giving extra work to IT staff on patient care systems

Subject: [Xerte] Minimum installation to export SCORM

I am a medical librarian in the states and I have used XOT (thanks to the sandpit!) to create a course for proof of concept. I exported it to SCORM and we deliver it using a hosted learning management system called HealthStream.

In order to create other RLOs to deliver I was wondering what the minimum installation is that I would need in order to export SCORM content. We do not need to be running XOT behind Moodle or anything like that. Would it be easiest to use MAXOS and not bother with installing on my desktop PC or bothering Info Technology to install on an intranet server or is there some other recommended approach.

Our IT folks are more focused on patient care systems, so I want to give them the easiest possible solution.

Thank you -
