Tony Karrer

Here's a recent one to get me started: Is it mandatory to use SCORM while developing an E-learning Software? You want to implement your courseware to the SCORM standard if you plan to have it launched and/or tracked under an LMS.

If you won't ever need to run it under an LMS, then SCORM is overhead you don't need (see Tracking Without an LMS ).
