Formal learning & social networking

Clark Quinn

is about informal learning, but the organization was moving to using social networking tools to scaffold their move from face-to-face to more online learning. So I was asked to talk about social networking and formal learning. That is, the first reason to use social networking around formal learning is to make it part of the repertoire of the community. I then segued to my second point, which is that social networking tools are better formal learning.

Day 4. How SCORM tracks course content


We’re now ready to discuss the magic of the SCORM API – how it enables learners to launch or resume a course and how SCORM tracks progress and results.
