The continuing growth of cloud-based technologies has been a driving factor in the evolution of corporate training. For many organizations, online learning or “eLearning” is now the foundation in their approach to employee development programs, as well as customer and partner training initiatives. For these companies, a Learning Management System (LMS) serves as the cornerstone for creating, delivering, managing, and tracking user engagement and success.
The Importance of SCORM for Corporate Training
The Sharable Content Object Reference Model, commonly referred to as “SCORM” defines a specific method for constructing and LMS and training content with the goal of ensuring that they work well with other SCORM conformant systems.
For anyone involved in any type of online learning, including eLearning-based corporate training, SCORM provides a powerful tool that enables content to be created once and then used across many different systems. With SCORM, robust content can be delivered to users quickly and cost-effectively.
