SCORM was initially developed by ADL (Secretary of Defense) – eLearning strategy for government.
LETSI is the new organization that is taking over SCORM.
Great picture reference of different adapters we need to carry when we travel. Each represents a standard defined internationally, but none are interoperable. SCORM is like this. Currently, six standards of SCORM.
SCORM is a standard, but really, it’s a support infrastructure.
Goal of SCORM is to make systems interoperable, portability of content.
- Content works on any LMS. (that’s the idea, anyways, ha)
- Can distribute same content across multiple LMS/LCMS
- Metadata framework
SCORM 2004 (current version)
- Modular, plug and play SCOs through simple sequencing (6th SCORM standard)
- Make components of one course reusable in other courses.
- Components managed individually.
- Portable instructional designs
New version of 2004 coming soon.
SCORM 2.0 coming in 2010, hopefully.
…had to leave early to catch a flight, bummer!
