How to Choose a SCORM Hosting LMS for Corporate Training


SCORM stands for "Sharable Content Object Reference Model". It is a set of technical standards for e-learning software products, which define how online learning content and Learning Management Systems (LMS) can communicate with each other.

SCORM ensures that e-learning content can be shared and used across different Learning Management Systems (LMS) and platforms, regardless of the software or hardware used. It defines a common language for online learning content and LMSs, making it easier to develop, share, and reuse online learning materials.

SCORM consists of a set of specifications and guidelines that define how e-learning content should be developed and packaged, how it should be launched and tracked by an LMS, and how the data generated by learners should be reported back to the LMS. This allows learners to take online courses from different providers and have their progress tracked and recorded in a consistent way.

SCORM is widely used in corporate training and education industries, and it has become the de facto standard for e-learning interoperability.

The Benefits of SCORM for Corporate Training

SCORM has several benefits for corporate training. Here are some of them:


SCORM enables interoperability between different e-learning software and hardware systems. This means that companies can use different e-learning content and Learning Management Systems (LMS) and be assured that they will work together seamlessly. This allows companies to use the best content and systems for their training needs.


SCORM enables the reusability of e-learning content. This means that e-learning content can be easily repurposed and reused for different training programs. This saves time and money for companies, as they do not need to create new content from scratch.


SCORM provides a consistent format for e-learning content. This ensures that all learners receive the same training experience, regardless of the system they are using or where they are located. This is especially important for companies with distributed workforces.


SCORM allows companies to track the progress of learners. This means that they can monitor learner progress and ensure that learners are meeting the required learning outcomes. This enables companies to make informed decisions about training and development programs.


SCORM can help companies reduce their training costs. By using existing e-learning content and LMS systems, companies can save money on content creation and system development. This is especially important for small and medium-sized enterprises that may not have the resources to develop their own e-learning content and systems.

How to Choose a SCORM Hosting LMS for Corporate Training

When choosing an LMS for SCORM hosting, there are several factors to consider. Here are some of the most important ones:

  • SCORM compliance: Make sure that the LMS is fully SCORM compliant. This means that it has been tested and certified to work with SCORM content. Look for an LMS that supports the latest version of SCORM.

  • Ease of use: Choose an LMS that is easy to use and navigate. Look for an intuitive user interface, clear instructions, and helpful support resources. You want your learners to be able to focus on the content, not on the technology.

  • Content management: Look for an LMS that has robust content management capabilities. You want to be able to easily upload, organize, and manage your SCORM content. Make sure that the LMS supports multiple file formats, including video, audio, and interactive content.

  • Reporting and analytics: Choose an LMS that provides robust reporting and analytics capabilities. You want to be able to track learner progress, monitor completion rates, and assess the effectiveness of your training programs. Look for an LMS that provides customizable reports and dashboards.

  • Integration: Consider the LMS's ability to integrate with other systems and tools. Look for an LMS that can integrate with your HR system, CRM system, or other business applications. This can help streamline your training processes and improve overall efficiency.

  • Security: Make sure that the LMS provides robust security features to protect your SCORM content and learner data. Look for an LMS that uses encryption, multi-factor authentication, and other security measures to ensure that your data is safe.
