This Web Site currently delivers SCORM Version 1.2 certified and compliant content through its Learning Management System (LMS). SCORM 2004 certified compliant content is available for those agencies requiring SCORM 2004 compliance.
"SCORM" stands for "Sharable Content Object Reference Model".
A "reference model" is something that shows what kinds of services will be needed to solve a particular problem, how they can be put together, the relevant standards that apply, and how they might be used.
SCORM at a high-level is a collection of specifications and standards. It applies the current developments in training technology through use of a specific content model to ensure consistent implementation of training across the e-learning community.
Accessibility: The ability to locate and access instructional components from one remote location and deliver them to many other locations.
Interoperability: The ability to take instructional components developed in one location with one set of tools or platforms and use them in another location with a different set of tools or platforms.
Durability: The ability to incorporate instructional components in multiple applications and contexts.
SCORM is built upon the work of the Aviation Industry Computer-Based Training (CBT) Committee (AICC), the IMS Global Learning Consortium, Inc., the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the Alliance for Remote Instructional Authoring and Distribution Networks for Europe (ARIADNE), and others to create one unified "reference model" of interrelated technical specifications and guidelines that meet U.S. Department of Defense high-level requirements for Web-based learning content and systems.
