    2. Number of Attempts: Allow unlimited attempts
    3. Track Number of Views: YES

    1. No Grading - You could pair the library tutorials with an additional Blackboard item such as a Discussion Question, Quiz, or other assignment. This means that Bb does not add an individual line item in to your gradebook for SCORM.
    2. SCORM Score - Marks the SCORM as a full or partial score in the gradebook based on the progress the student made in advancing through the SCORM
    3. SCORM Completion - Marks the SCORM as a checkmark in your gradebook once the student selects the last item in the SCORM
    4. SCORM Satisfaction - Not enabled
  8. The SCORM should now appear as an item in your course. By default the SCORM opens up as a pop-up window. However, for a better student experience, click the small grey arrow to the right of the SCORM title in your Learning Module and select "Edit".
  9. Scroll down to the "Advanced Options" section of the screen and select "Yes". Click the second menu item "Launch Behavior" and under SCO Launch Type, select "Frameset" from the dropdown menu. Click "Submit"
