Q&A - eLearning Standards Especially SCORM

Tony Karrer

Here's a recent one to get me started: Is it mandatory to use SCORM while developing an E-learning Software? The other situation is if you are building something that is not a course, e.g., it's reference material. Most LMS systems have ways to launch these kinds of reference systems (they are just a web page after all). There are a bunch of other standards by ADL (who is responsible for SCORM ), IMS , IEEE LTSC including CORDRAâ„¢ , LOM , Meta-data , etc.

My job was to help author SCORM 2004, focusing on how to develop content that would work in SCORM systems. Project Tin Can” was the name Rustici Software came up with to describe the work ADL contracted them to do. They reviewed almost 100 white papers authored for LETSI, who in 2007-2008 was looking at what a “SCORM 2.0” ADL, IEEE and many people and businesses talking about this technology call it xAPI. Right now, “Tin Can” refers to xAPI. What is IEEE?
