Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video What is SCORM?, part of Learning SCORM and Tin Can API.
- Now it's time to wrap our minds around SCORM.…So, let's begin by breaking down the acronym, SCORM,…which stands for Shareable Content Object Reference Model.…All right, so to put it in simpler terms,…SCORM is a reference model…or basically a set of instructions…for the objects or pieces of content…you want to share with others.…The shareable objects are your courses…and the components making up your courses.…So, to say your elearning course is SCORM-compliant…means you followed this set of instructions…when creating it and preparing it to be hosted on an LMS.…
The good news is most elearning authoring software…will do most of the work for you…when publishing your course to an LMS.…So, why was SCORM developed in the first place?…Well, it was back in the 1990s,…when the U.S. government was starting to create…a lot of online training across their various departments.…Each department was developing…their own online courses individually…and delivering them via an LMS of their own choosing.…So, the departments were not talking to one another…
This course introduces the what, why, and how of SCORM, and the tools for creating SCORM-compliant content. Author David Rivers also covers the second generation of compliance integration, the Tin CAN API (aka the Experience API), which allows for learning events to be recorded and analyzed.
