That said, for a freebie -and yes, I said freebie (open source) it has a lot of power. To give you an example, the free version is ADL SCORM 2004 certified (many commercial paid ones are not). While traditionally best of the best are announced in December, I decided why wait. I mean it is not like something is going to change in just a few weeks for any such product. Before I get to the list, people always want to know how do I decide what constitutes the best of the best. Here are my criteria. If they are stale – seriously do you deserve to the best?

Standard Options Apply

I want to encourage it by keeping it as open as we can AND by making it possible for the best approaches, not just the best spin, to find adoption. We can take this open specification and transform it into an international standard that will catalyze data interoperability across systems. Or… we just take this open specification as it is, and try and keep the scope to simply transposing it for standardization, ensuring that adoption years from now will look pretty similar to what it looks like today… which looks exactly like SCORM. This is a long read. It works.
