SCORM or Sharable Content Object Reference Model is a technical standard established by the United States Department of Defense in January 1999. The first version was released in January 2000.The standard tells programs how to write their code in order for content to be shared and communicated with other softwares. The most common examples is creating a SCORM output of a course from an authoring tool to be used in the Learning Management System or LMS. Some examples of SCORM objects include the ability to transmit scores, learner names, and bookmark a location within a course.
Side Note: "Less Then 100" is a series I came up with after seeing a couple campaigns talking about tips and tricks under 100 words. I decided to put my own spin on the series and present the definition of common Learning terms and the "need to know" information on each topic.
