A learning management system (LMS) is a software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting and delivery of electronic educational technology (also called e-learning) courses or training programs.
Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) is a collection of standards and specifications for web-based electronic educational technology (also called e-learning). It defines communications between client side content and a host system (called "the run-time environment"), which is commonly supported by a learning management system. It was published by the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) project.
There are two versions of the standard:
- 1.2 is the defacto standard version of SCORM. It is widely used and supported by most LMS. It was published in 2001.
- 1.3 is also known as SCORM 2004 and is the current standard. It is designed to resolve some ambiguities in the earlier system. Content developed under 1.2 should still work in the new standard.
