SCORM Content Aggregation
For content developers the biggest question is often "How do I make my existing e-learning content SCORM conformant?"
- Content is generally compatible with SCORM if:
- It can be delivered via a web-browser
- It can be self-contained (i.e. packaged with all dependencies wholly in a ZIP file)
- It does NOT depend on server-side scripting languages (such as JSP, ASP, and PHP)
- It does NOT depend on external files or external URLs
- It does NOT depend on downloadable components that must be installed by an administrator
- General steps for making e-learning content SCORM conformant:
- Ensure content meets SCORM compatibility requirements (above)
- Organize all content files (including dependencies) into a single directory structure
- Define and describe the content using an XML manifest file as described by SCORM
- Package all the content and necessary files into a ZIP file
SCORM conformant e-learning content can be packaged, deployed to, and delivered via any SCORM conformant learning management system (LMS).
