SCORM: The Basics

Understand the basics of SCORM

What is SCORM?

SCORM stands for Sharable Content Object Reference Model and is a set of technical standards for web-based educational software products. While it doesn't determine anything about the instructional design of eLearning content, it does govern how online learning content and Learning Management Systems (LMS) communicate with each other.
When creating an eLearning course with an authoring tool that is SCORM compliant the output is a zip folder which is uploaded to the LMS. The LMS handles everything from there (so long as it’s SCORM compliant too). When the course is published, the user can launch it in a browser and the LMS collects data to track and report results of their performance.
