Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video A look at how SCORM works, part of Up and Running with SCORM and Tin Can API.
- Sometimes to really understand a process…like creating SCORM-compliant content for an LMS,…it helps to visualize the entire thing in action.…So I've created a simple diagram that I hope…will clarify things for you if you're still a little fuzzy…on what SCORM actually does.…I won't get in to the minute details…of what the software is doing when you choose…to make an e-Learning course SCORM-compliant.…That's more for developers.…But here's a simplified overview of what's going on.…First, we develop our course maybe…using software like Captivate or Storyline.…
And that course is made up of chapters.…And inside those chapters, maybe we have pages or slides…depending on the software you're using.…Regardless, these are the objects that we wanna share…with our learners by eventually publishing them to an LMS…or even more than one LMS.…But as is, our course may not fit…with one or both of these LMSs.…If the LMS is SCORM-compliant, we need to ensure our courses…are also SCORM-compliant if our learners are gonna be able…
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.
