What is this SCORM stuff anyways?
SCORM is an acronym for “Sharable Content Object Reference Model” and is a specification that describes how an eLearning course should communicate with a host learning management system.
Sounds great, but what does SCORM do for me?
- It enables you to purchase 3rd party courses from a variety of vendors on many different subjects – providing flexibility when sourcing courseware. This can be particularly helpful when it comes to standardized compliance training and common skills training.
- It also enables you to use powerful 3rd party eLearning authoring tools like Articulate, Captivate, or Camtasia to create multimedia rich and interactive training.
As long as both the course and your host LMS support SCORM, you can plug the course in to your Learning Management System for easy sharing and tracking.
The good news is that Traineaze is SCORM 1.2 compatible, giving you the flexibility to get the best of breed course for any topic – one that resonates with your audience.
If SCORM sounds overwhelming or confusing, don’t worry about it. With Traineaze you can create online courses directly within our online training software and bypass SCORM altogether.
