I have some content, I'd like to convert to SCO "objects" and import into my LMS.
Where can I find resources on how to do this. The LMS creates the SCORM 2004, but I have to feed it pre-made SCO "objects". I need to know how I convert my content.

The content is varied, some of its in powerpoint slides, some in flash movies, some in captivate movies.

Thanks!

I don't want to purchase any additional software. I'm using Flash, the course ware is being created in Flash.
I don't understand how to generate the manifest files and I'm having a hard time finding simple examples to help me get started.

Try http://www.ostyn.com/resscormtech.htm for several very nice resources.
"Flash 8 includes two HTML publishing templates to create SCORM conformant SCOs. One for SCORM 1.2 and one for SCORM 2004. Those templates can be a tremendous time saver. If your Flash content is a movie that loads and unloads other movies, you might want to save backup copies of the template files and modify them. Remove the onbeforeunload event handler in the body tag of the template. A spurious onbeforeunload event is triggered in the browser whenever a movie is replaced by another one, and this would cause premature termination of the communication session between your SCO and the SCORM API. In English versions of Flash, the files are in C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Flash 8\en\First Run.

Flash MX 2004 includes a similar template for SCORM 1.2 only."

Actually what I found is that the latest version of Flash basically generates Scorm compliant HTML, but I need to create a manifest xml file, and I just can't find anything online specifically about this and how to create a simple one, that just says to load one file.

I don't want to purchase software I want a tutorial on how to create the file. I just can't find anything really concrete on specifications, or simple examples.
