Who, When and Where of SCORM                                               Designing for SCORM




     In this unit we hope to answer the questions:



           1.    Who is involved in the development of SCORM?
           2.    When did SCORM start and what are the developmental timelines
                 regarding SCORM?
           3.    Where is SCORM headed?

                          Who is involved in the development of SCORM?



        •     SCORM came about in response to executive order 13111, “Using Technology to
              Improve Training Opportunities for Federal Government Employees,”
        •     The department of defense was asked to take the lead in working with other federal
              agencies, academia and industry to develop common specifications for technology-
              based learning.
        •     One of the first steps involved the establishment of the Advanced Distributed
              Learning (ADL) network in 1999.

                        Who is involved in the development of SCORM?


     Since the establishment of the ADL Alexandria Co-Lab, the Department of Labor (DOL) and
     the National Guard Bureau (NGB) have joined the Alexandria ADL Co-Lab as “contributing
     sponsors”.

                           Who is involved in the development of SCORM?



   Three ADL co-lab nodes have been established:

          •       The Joint ADL Co-Lab in Orlando, Florida
          •       The Academic ADL Co-Lab in Madison, Wisconsin
          •       The Workforce ADL Co-Lab in Memphis, Tennessee

    In addition, ADL has established two ADL Partnership Labs in the United Kingdom
    and Canada:

              •   The UK ADL partnership lab at the University of Wolverhampton in Telford, England.
              •   The Canadian ADL Partnership Lab in Ottawa, Ontario


   The Department of Labor (DOL) and the National Guard Bureau (NGB) have since joined in
   as contributing sponsors.

                          Who is involved in the development of SCORM?

     The SCORM initiative involves many people from government, academia and industry
     working within standards bodies such as:


           •     The alliance of remote instructional authoring & distribution networks for
                 Europe (ARIADNE),
           •     Aviation industry CBT committee (AICC),
           •     IMS global learning consortium, inc. The (IMS),
           •     The institute of electrical and electronics engineers (IEEE)
           •     And others

                                       Where is SCORM headed?

     SCORM currently provides an Application Programming Interface (API) for communicating
     information about:


                 •   a learner’s interaction with content objects,

                 •   a defined data model for representing this information,

                 •   a content packaging specification that enables interoperability of learning
                     content,

                 •   a standard set of metadata elements that can be used to describing learning
                     content and

                 •   a set of standard sequencing rules which can be applied to the organization
                     of the learning content.

                 Future direction of SCORM:

                           •   Defining reusable learning objects

                           •   Developing new content models

                           •   Developing learner assessment models

                           •   Creating new models for sequencing content

                           •   Creating learning “knowledge” repositories
