    Description

      I have to import individual SCORM packages one at a time with Moodle. In developing and testing content I am nearing over 1,000 individual packages. Each one requires manual naming, describing and browsing for the corresponding zip file.

      I propose creating a multiple file selection technique and the ability to automatically infer name and description from the SCORM package manifest itself. This would automate the process and save a considerable amount of time.

      Additionally, if these packages are updated en masse I currently have to edit each individual one and save it again in order to get Moodle to freshen its extracted cache. For a batch of 125 that results in 375 clicks required and a lot of tabs (and patience). Ideally, the ability to freshen SCORM packages in a particular course is needed. Perhaps by comparing last modified date of the SCORM zip file, or a hash of its content, with known values in the database?
