Embedded handout materials.

Our shop produces hundreds of training videos annually. Many of those include handout materials. Typically an LMS would add these materials in a separate web page, but we have a requirement to somehow include the handouts as embedded files in the SCORM package. Can do that in Captivate, but it is not an ideal tool for working with video, as it is more slide based.

I think you can accomplish what you want with embedding a url in the video to the documents hosted online. The URL can be for a webpage, pdf, CDN etc., right?

Yeah, one would think. The sad fact is, unless it's something like a web page, it simply won't work.

The SCORM file is usually a zip file. So one would think you could add the supporting document to the zip. But that would only get you part way there.

As Captivate is mentioned, if you have access to Captivate, I'd suggest using that as perhaps a container that allows the linking as you want, then use Camtasia for the development of the videos. You would then use Captivate to point to the videos.
