“SCORM 2004 is dying (if not already dead!).” For the careful observer there are many signs to support this view, and here are a few of them: Sign #1: 75% of packages are still on SCORM 1.2, 10 years after the initial release of SCORM 2004 [1] [2]. Sign #2: There is no certification process for tools and packages for the latest SCORM 2004 4 th edition. Low adoption. frameset?

However, many LMS products still lack in full SCORM 2004 support, various tools interpret the spec differently, and it does add a bit more complexity to the overall setup of the course. So is there really an advantage to using the ‘newer’ SCORM 2004 spec over the older SCORM 1.2? There are three significant changes in SCORM 2004; ‘Status’ Separation, read-write Interactions, and Sequencing. It depends!

just tried out the Blinkx software for Learning Circuits's Try It section (look for the review to go up in about two weeks). The twist with this tool is that it can be automatic, so it's not the information that the person finds most relevant but that the software does--based on other information that the person is working with. Often, KM software just collects information and then the user has to sort through to find what's relevant. Another personal KM tool. It's a pretty neat idea, although the beta version definitely needs perfecting.
