When involved in digital learning, more specifically, eLearning modules, dealing with SCORM is inevitable. For those unfamiliar with the term, it stands for “Sharable Content Object Reference Model”. In this article, we will explore what SCORM is, its variants, the matter of compliance and why we use SCORM; a heavy topic, but we will attempt to make it digestible, so let us begin with the basics.
What is SCORM?
The SCORM standards govern two things about the training object: packaging content and run-time.
What is a SCORM file?
What are the different SCORM versions?
What are the alternatives to SCORM?
What can be tracked by SCORM?
The benefits and challenges of SCORM?
The result of adhering to this standard delivers a tremendous amount of efficiencies, flexibility and cost reductions.
To conclude, there are technically five versions of SCORM: SCORM 1.1, SCORM 1.2, SCORM 2004 2nd Edition, SCORM 2004 3rd Edition and SCORM 2004 4th edition available for use and the decision on which version to use depends on the content.
