    Trivantis (Lectora) Support Information and Recommendations



    This is the HealthStream recommended support procedures for Lectora created SCORM content. To resolve an inquiry as quickly as possible, please follow these steps. 

    1. Review the Lectora SCORM document provided by Trivantis and HealthStream for step-by-step instructions on setting up the SCORM elements in a Lectora title. Trivantis and HealthStream always recommend setting Lectora titles for SCORM 1.2 rather than SCORM 2004, unless there is a compelling need to take advantage of features of 2004. SCORM 2004 can be more complex and difficult to troubleshoot than SCORM 1.2. 

    2. Search this site with keywords describing your problem, or post a question on the Authoring Forum. Often, rather than just a simple response to help meet the need, other Lectora and SCORM authors may also provide best practices and helpful tips.

    3. Contact HealthStream Customer Service. HealthStream may have documented solutions to see if the issue can be resolved. Contact us by one of the following methods:

    • Email the inquiry to This will create a case automatically, and HealthStream will email a recommendation or call based on the nature of the issue.
    • Call HealthStream customer service directly at 800-521-0574. 

    4. Contact Trivantis Customer Support. If your problem appears to be within Lectora itself, contact Trivantis. Most HealthStream Lectora users have a valid support license and are entitled to call Trivantis directly, at no additional charge, for Lectora-specific inquiries. Trivantis support hours are 6 am - 7 pm Eastern Time.


    Adding New File Types to HealthStream Plugin

    Trivantis updates the allowed files on our list in a separate part of the tool than the HealthStream plugin. However, once the upgrade is done, simply doing the upgrade check and downloading the latest update (from within Lectora) will also update the HealthStream file types to the latest version. Trivantis updated the file types to add *.f4v types in 2011.
