Step 1 - Confirm your Web Server meets the Skillsoft Minimum Requirements
Skillsoft eLearning content must be deployed to a Microsoft Windows-based Web Server.
Step 2 - Confirm your Client Machines meet the Skillsoft Minimum Requirements
The first step to successful testing of Skillsoft content is to ensure your client PCs meet the minimum technical requirements. The quickest way of confirming this is by using Skillsoft's online browser test tool at: http://browser.Skillport.com.
This automated test validates that your client's browser supports Skillsoft elearning, and provides self-guided help in resolving identified issues.
Step 3 - Download the Skillsoft Content Installer Kit (CIK) and Sample Courses
For details about where to download these files, please contact your Skillsoft Account Team.
The Skillsoft CIK is the main package that includes all the Skillsoft players as well as the Installer program that copies the Skillsoft courses onto the web server, generates the AICC metadata, and edits the Skillsoft player configuration.
Step 4 - Review the Documentation
The Installation guide, integration guides and answer keys provide all the necessary documentation to allow you to successfully install, configure, and test the Skillsoft players.
Step 5 - Prepare the Content Installer Kit
Extract all the files from the content installer kit, ensuring that the paths within the ZIP file are maintained. This creates a directory structure where the main folder name CIK_RELEASE_yyyymmdd changes depending on the current version of the Installer Kit.
Copy the course ZIP files without unzipping them to the course's subfolder.
Step 6 - Installation
Once you have prepared the installer kit, you are ready to install and configure the Skillsoft players.
Note: If generating SCORM PIF packages, you must configure the Skillsoft players when prompted as the player and configuration files form part of the SCORM PIF files.
