Consider the internet; developments on top of the TCP/IP protocol like SMTP and HTML allowed a variety of tools to work together to bring us email and the world wide web. After initial efforts in 1993, and bursts of energy circa 2000 and again in 2004, we’re seeing a new resurgence of activity and interest.

Rewind briefly to a day in 2010, when the dew was still fresh and early morning sun filled the meeting room at Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL). Back in 2000, JavaScript was the only programming language used to create training content in web page format.

So SCORM is a system that lets different pieces of software share digital learning content. SCORM was first released in 2000, and one of the most common versions is from 2004.

Growth Engineering

SCORM won the hearts of L&D folk everywhere, when it was invented by the ADL in 2000. It solved the eLearning dilemma of its age – software incompatibility.
