SCORM Stands for Sharable Content Object Reference Model. According to RUSTICI Software, (http://scorm.com/scorm-explained/) the following is what SCORM is all about:
“SCORM is a set of technical standards for e-learning software products. SCORM tells programmers how to write their code so that it can “play well” with other e-learning software. It is the de facto industry standard for e-learning interoperability. Specifically, SCORM governs how online learning content and Learning Management Systems (LMSs) communicate with each other. SCORM does not speak to instructional design or any other pedagogical concern, it is purely a technical standard.”
That is great but what does it mean to me and my online learning management system?
As the technical definition above suggests, using SCORM content has many advantages to your LMS. You can use various authoring tools available in the market to create SCORM content. This content can be used with any SCORM compliant learning management system. So if and when you migrate between systems, you can use your content as-is with no modifications.
SCORM content has additional advantages such as the ability to track various levels of user progress within a course, ability to create interactive courses and many other such features. ScholarLMS is 100% SCORM compliant and you can use your SCORM content directly inside the LMS by uploading it to the LMS.
