									ADL Announces New SCORM Technical Work to Begin
Alexandria, VA – October 14, 2009 – ADL is updating its technical roadmap for SCORM and the
ADL Registry. As part of this effort, it will be collaborating with various learning specifications
and standards organizations to achieve our goals. ADL has not determined the exact nature or
scope of any of these collaborative efforts.

ADL respects the efforts and opinions of all learning standards organizations and strives to
maintain collaborative relationships with them because we all have the same goals in mind –
delivering open, interoperable, high-quality, and easily accessible learning. As a U.S.
Department of Defense-sponsored initiative, ADL participates in the work of many different
learning standards organizations, including the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee,
IMS Global Learning Consortium, Aviation Industry CBT Committee (AICC), Schools
Interoperability Framework Association (SIFA), MedBiquitous, Learning Education and Training
Systems Interoperability Federation (LETSI), and others, without favoring the processes,
approaches, or products of any single organization.

At this time, ADL will retain stewardship of SCORM and will continue to work with all standards
organizations to advance and improve SCORM's capabilities. Send questions or comments to:

About ADL
In the Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) of 1996, the Department of Defense (DoD) identified
several factors that highlighted the need for DoD to provide on-demand training for individuals
and units worldwide. In response to the Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR), DoD developed a
Department-wide strategy to harness the power of learning and information technologies to
standardize and modernize education and training in 1997. The strategy was called the
Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative. For more information, go to
