The ongoing work of learning standards
SEPTEMBER 15, 2017
And then the IMS (an initiative of Educause before being spun out as an independent effort) started creating standards, as did the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), the major body in the US responsible for computing standards. SCORM. They wanted a standard, took a plausible set of standards from the work, and called it the Standard Courseware Object Reference Model (SCORM). Vendors got on board, and SCORM became a more-or-less viable mechanism.
