Publishing a Manifest (1.2) - Manifest Tab

You get to this screen from the Manifest area of the Publish Lesson screen or by opening an existing manifest. This screen is where you create or edit your SCORM version 1.2 manifest. The editor suggests data based on the specification as well as defaults defined for the Training Studio Publisher program. All parts of the SCORM manifest (such as resources) that are not included in this editor are created automatically when you publish the lesson. Look at the screen below as well as the table of elements to learn more. Click on the other tabs to learn about each one.




Screen Element



The manifest identifier. It must begin with a letter and not contain spaces. The editor will suggest an identifier in the form of TrainingStudio-GUID (generally unique global identifier), but you may choose a different format).


The manifest version.


The schema that defines the metadata. You would normally leave this as "ADL SCORM."

Schema Version

The version of the schema that defines the metadata. You would normally leave this as "1.2."

Metadata Scheme

The name and version of the specification used to create this metadata instance. You normally leave this as "SCORM v1.2."


Select the primary human language of this resource (SCO). This value is propagated to many different areas of the manifest.


The various schema and locations that control the manifest. Do not edit unless you are very well-versed in SCORM. The Schema Identifier is the part before the "=" sign in the XML below. The Namespace then comes immediately after the "=" sign. The Target Namespace refers to the location and corresponding schema name. All the values are concatenated in the "xsi:schemaLocation=" part of the manifest. Add additional namespaces by typing in the "*" row. Delete namespaces by selecting a row and pressing the Delete key.


Here is a sample section of XML for the screen shown above:


<manifest identifier="TrainingStudio-39ad3806-43a7-4c68-877c-1ba88243e716" version="1.0" xmlns="" xmlns:adlcp="" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation=" imscp_rootv1p1p2.xsd imsmd_rootv1p2p1.xsd adlcp_rootv1p2.xsd ">
