How to Upload & Publish Adobe Captivate Course on WordPress Website?

It’s been almost a week since i’m hanging out in this E-Learning Community. Following what other members are posting (Question & Blog), i found a very interesting question coming up again n again. The question is: How to Upload & Publish Adobe Captivate Course on WordPress website? To answer this question, i’m writing a proper step by step guide which is going to help you publishing your course on WordPress website.

Here are some threads:

Note: It is assumed you have you exported Adobe Captivate course .zip file. I’m not going to show you how to export your files.


To upload your course on WordPress website, you need a Plugin. Let me tell you, there are no free plugin for this task. You have to buy any, but i’m using GrassBlade xAPI Companion WordPress plugin. The developers of this plugin are in this field from last 8 years, this is the trust factor i have with them. Support is good and it is easy to use also this plugin is way more cheaper than others.

Note: I’m not promoting it here, but according to me this the ultimate choice, if you want to do this task. Also this plugin Works with xAPI Tracking only, no SCORM.

Step 1:

Login to your WordPress dashboard.

Step 2:

Install and Activate Plugin.

Step 3:

After activation, you get 2 new option on the left sidebar. xAPI Content (Uploading and Content Management) and GrassBlade (Settings and LRS Configuration).

Step 4:

Go to xAPI Content and Click Add New.

Step 5:

Scroll Down and go to xAPI Content Details.

Step 7:

Now Select your zip file and click update button.

You’re done !! it will upload and publish your course on WordPress site. If you have a big file you can use dropbox option. Connect Dropbox with this plugin and directly import your big files. There is bulk import option also in xAPI content.

Step 8:

Click preview button in Content Detail Section, to view this course. You can use shortcode to show this course on any page. Also you can select, show this course on this page option to use that same page.

Note: If you’re uploading course with xAPI Tracking feature, you must connect this plugin with Learning Record Store (LRS). You can use their GrassBlade LRS or some other, it will work perfectly.

I hope this article will solve problem of many Adobe Captivate and WordPress users. You guys can ask question in comment section, i will try to answer you all.

Thanks for reading follow me for more latest tips and tricks, see you some other day.

Timing Out Issue


I’m creating files and publishing them as HTML5 -SCORM using Captivate 2017. I upload the files (or we refer to them as lessons) into Moodle. I’m finding that a timing out issue is preventing a grade to ever make it to the online gradebook. A user accesses a file or lesson, he or she clicks through a couple of the menu items (slides), and then steps away from the computer. The user doesn’t close out of the lesson even though warning signs are posted in the instructions. Moodle has the session set for a maximum of 2 hours. When the user comes back to the lesson after 2 hours; he or she is able complete the lesson since the  lesson doesn’t time out, sleep or refresh itself. After being away, the user sits down at the computer, and completes the lesson, but… he or she doesn’t receive a grade. It doesn’t matter if the user closes out and logs back in and retakes the lesson, they will never receive a grade. Moodle reports show that the lesson is not complete, but then includes a completion date of 12/31/1969.

The Captivate published files are set to accept unlimited attempts, and as long as the user goes through each of the slides, he or she receives a grade. For example, if the lesson is made up of 26 slides, the user will get a grade of 0 if they watch all 26 slides. The user has unlimited attempts to complete the lesson. The user is able to close out of the lesson and pick up where they left off when they come back again.

My question is: Does anyone know if Captivate has any sort of setting that automatically resets a lesson after it times out. Or, is there a way to close a lesson after so many minutes of inactivity. I can’t find any setting in Moodle that will help me fix this problem. And, I’ve exhausted what I believe to be my only options in Captivate. I’m okay with changing the criteria such as limiting the number of attempts. Thanks.

Digitales Lernen bei der Deutschen Bahn

Ein Podcast, aufgenommen vor einigen Tagen auf dem Corporate Learning Camp in Hamburg (#CLC19HH). Christoph Haffner fragt und Sabrina Schulze, bei der Deutschen Bahn verantwortlich für digitales Lernen, antwortet. Stichworte des Gesprächs, die ich mir notiert habe, sind die DB Lernwelt (seit 2018), die Initiative „Endgeräte für alle“, Azubi-Klassen mit Tablets und Virtual Reality. Dann die Klassiker wie Online- und Blended Learning sowie Simulatoren, mit denen ein Konzern wie die Bahn schon seit Jahren unterwegs ist.

Aber die Bahn ist groß, vielfältig, mit vielen unterschiedlichen Berufsgruppen unter einem Dach, was pauschale Aussagen zum Grad der Digitalisierung, zu Bildungs- und Lernprozessen eigentlich ausschließt. Ziele wie das Lernen am Arbeitsplatz sowie das selbstgesteuerte Lernen stoßen, so Sabrina Schulze, immer wieder an organisatorische Grenzen, über die dann neu abgestimmt werden muss.
