SCORM vs. LTI: what’s the difference?

Rustici Software

To put it simply, the main difference between LTI and SCORM is that LTI is focused on connecting learning systems, whereas SCORM is focused on launching training content and tracking interactions. LTI is focused on connecting learning systems in a standard way. It stands for Learning Tools Interoperability and it is a standard created by the IMS Global Learning Consortium. SCORM courses are uploaded into and played within the LMS.

Distribute courses to LTI LMSs with Content Controller v2.1

Rustici Software

As of Content Controller v2.1 , you can also share your content as an IMS LTI tool provider. If you want to create your content using all the neat features and xAPI-based results tracking available in, say, cmi5, you can still make it available in an LMS that only supports SCORM 1.2. Nearly every LMS supports at least one of those three standards, so we felt like our bases were covered. Here at Rustici Software, we work with a lot of different standards.
