Hello,

Is there a way to programmatically load an unzipped SCORM package into the SLK? We are trying to find a straight-forward way to integrate our content authoring package with the SLK so that courses could be published to the SLK without requiring us to compress the SCORM course and ensuing directory structure into a formal scorm zip package.

Thanks for the help,

Not that I'm aware of. Zip is a pretty fundamental part of the SCORM specification.

You can take a look at the SLK source code, particularly the Package and Learning Store areas. You could probably reverse engineer this code and write a web service which could be installed side by side with SLK and allow unzipped content upload, but I'd bet that the cost of doing this would far, far exceed the cost of finding and using a good Zip API.
