Reproducing the Issue

  1. Have a SCORM/AICC zip file
  2. Go to Content > Import Content
  3. Proceed through the tool by choosing the zip file and content deployment location
  4. After the zip file has been checked, face error


A possible cause:

  • The manifest contains references to external metadata resources. The resources must be valid URLs

  1. Open the ZIP file
  2. Find the manifest file (most commonly the imsmanifest.xml)
  3. Find the XML namespace and validate the resources are valid
