Brookes Virtual Help



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.
