- While this course is intended to get you up and running with SCORM and Tin Can API, we will be working with some elearning content already created in some of the most popular elearning authoring software. To follow along with me, you should already have some knowledge of elearning software and you may even want to install free trials if you don't already have the following programs installed: Captivate 8, Articulate Storyline 2, Lectora Inspire, and Camtasia. To learn more about each of these software programs, you'll find plenty of courses at lynda.com to help you decide which one is best for you.
You might even want to start with one of my other courses, Screencasting Fundamentals, where I step you through the elearning creation process using many of these programs. And because SCORM and Tin Can API compliance involves the use of an LMS, or learning management system, some basic knowledge of LMS' will be very helpful before starting this course. Aaron Quigley's couse on LMS Fundamentals at lynda.com is a great option if you're totally new to learning management systems. Lastly, exercise files do accompany this course and we'll talk about those next.
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.
