Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) is a collection of standards and specifications for web-based e-learning. It defines communications between client side content and a host system called the run-time environment. It also defines how content may be packaged into a transferable zip file.
What does SCORM mean for Brookes Virtual users?
Without SCORM, the process of incorporating interactive games, simulations and other multimedia based learning activities into a Brookes VLE course is much more complicated. SCORM enables staff to produce multimedia in different packages such as Hot Potatoes and export them into a VLE course as a zip file. The VLE then unzips the file and adds it to the course.
