Replacing an Existing Course Package: Move "Replace an Existing E-Lesson" to a more intuitive location (currently in "Add Learning Object" > "SCORM")

Problem Statement: When you are updating a learning object-level course package for an online course, you must do the following:

  1. Select Edit on the online course.

  2. Navigate to the "Outline" section.

  3. Select "Add Learning Object" (??)

  4. Select "SCORM 2004" as if you were adding a new package.

  5. Select "Replace an Existing Lesson" within the "Select the Update Behaviour" section.

This is very confusing, as you would expect to select the "Edit" icon next to the learning object you intend to update

The UI is telling you to "Add Learning Object" when your intent is to replace an existing course package for an existing learning object. Further, you can only find this option if you go all the way toward adding a new, fresh learning object - only then do you find that this option to replace exists.

Solution: Move or copy the "Replace an Existing Lesson" option to the "Edit" icon next to the learning object you desire to replace/update.

    Agree! This is so backwards and unintuitive..

    I agree! The most logical way is to click the edit button next to the scorm learning object, and upload a new file, however that does not work. What I do is create a new scorm learning object and delete the previous one. Just seems like this could be streamlined a bit more.

    I also found this confusing and then I got used to it. It's one of those things that seems wrong when you first encounter it, but just accept it when you have to deal with it enough times. To replace an existing scorm package, you really shouldn't have to click "add Learning Object". The language/terms used, or the logic is wrong.
