Article Summary

SCORM stands for “Sharable Content Object Reference Model” and is a way to create units of online training material that can be shared across systems.

Article Detail

SCORM  is a set of technical standards for e-learning software products. SCORM tells programmers how to write their code so that it can “play well” with other e-learning software. Specifically, SCORM governs how online learning content and Learning Management Systems (LMSs) communicate with each other.  SCORM stands for “Sharable Content Object Reference Model” and defines how to create “sharable content objects” or “SCOs” that can be reused in different systems and contexts. The Relias LMS uses the Rustici Software SCORM Engine when displaying SCORM files as the course content on the LMS.

To test a SCORM file any user has free access to Rustici's Test Track Application. After registering as a new user, the SCORM file would need to be imported under My Courses. Once the course has been imported, the course should be launched and reviewed as it would in an LMS. Be sure to click on every page in your course & answer any quiz or review questions in the course to make sure they are working properly.  Once the course has been completed or fully reviewed, the next step is to review the course status section to confirm the status, score, and time that the course passed to the LMS is correct. To review what the course sent to the LMS during runtime, one would then want to also review the debug logs. Below is a screen shot of what the Test Track application displays once a course has been imported.
