Questions to Ask Ur Prospective LMS Vendor

If you purchased an AICC only, then you have to find a system that is AICC compliant. It can be SCORM too, but the AICC is the key. . What about PENS or some other compliance standard? Unless you must have PENS or one of the other compliance standards, it is not needed.

As you are aware I am not a fan of AICC – useful in early 2000’s, but IMO not that useful today.

One system offers the ability to do so – but prefers that people use just their product rather then pushing it via PENS to a LMS or downloading the course in a SCORM wrapper, then uploading it into a SCORM LMS).
