SCORM Course Launch Process
Figure 6 illustrates the system processes that occur when a SCORM course is launched.

SCORM Course Launch
As Figure 6 shows, the following processes occur when launch is clicked from the Course Details Lesson view:
- The LMS determines the SCO course to launch, initializes the SCO, and launches the course.
- The API adapter is initialized and processes information. The LMSInitialize API initializes the communication between the SCO and API Adapter. When the student launches the course, the SCO (the course) finds the API Adapter, and initiates the communication with the API Adapter.
- SCO sends information to the LMS. In some cases, the SCO will need to send information to the LMS about the learner's status. For example, if the student finishes the course, the LMS updates the status for this student.
- The LMSFinish API completes the communication between the SCO and API Adapter. When the student has completed the course, the SCO lets the API adapter know that it is finished. SCO sends the LMSFinish API to communicate the completion.
