         •   SCORM 2004 4th Edition
         •   Finding documentation
         •   Define sequencing versus branching
         •   modularizing your SCOs to create courseware that can be
               • free-flowing navigation,
               • sequencing SCOs or

         •   write SCORM 2004 manifest files,
         •   insert SCORM API calls,

        •    You can create courseware that is restricts free-
             flowing navigation
        •    Let LMS handle navigation
        •    Never refer to another SCO from a SCO
            • reasons to break this rule
        •    Make SCOs smaller to do this
             – i.e. make them a screen
        •    Remove specific theming and any titling that would
             refer to a course or lesson that is made up of
             SCOs.
        •    Remove all navigation buttons from the SCO itself
            • and reasons to break this rule
