Is LMS Portals SCORM-Compliant?
SCORM stands for “Sharable Content Object Reference Model”. SCORM outlines a specific method of constructing Learning Management Systems (LMSs) and training content so that it can work well with other SCORM-compliant systems.
The “Sharable Content Object” piece of the definition refers to the fact that SCORM is about creating elements of online training materials that can be distributed across systems. SCORM outlines how to build “sharable content objects” or “SCOs” that can be re-purposed across different systems and contexts.
“Reference Model” refers to the fact that SCORM isn’t actually a standard. Instead, it references existing standards and instructs developers regarding how to properly use them together.
The Benefits of SCORM
SCORM is a powerful tool for anyone interested in online, computer-based training and learning. With SCORM, you can create content once and use it in many different systems and situations without having to modify it. This plug-and-play opportunity can be powerful as it enable robust content to be delivered more quickly, and cost-effectively.
