LMS Question from a Newbie: SCORM vs HTML
I'm a new eLearning Manager (first job in eLearning design) and I'm working to convince my new employer to buy Articulate 360 (I love it!). Currently, our LMS is not set up to accept SCORM files. A little background: I work for a medical association and they offer continuing education, but they've mostly provided webinars and recorded PowerPoint presentations. I'm creating courses in the trial software to demo and show the benefits of Articulate 360.
I wanted to preview a web object so I figured out how to upload it as an HTML file into the LMS. It functions perfectly. So, what is the advantage (if any) to a SCORM file over an HTML file? I ask this because it will cost my employer more money to change our contract with the LMS provider, but I've only ever worked with SCORM files when I was an education project manager and so I don't understand the value in using HTML files for our courses.
I appreciate any feedback or resources to more information.
