The LMS365 SCORM & AICC Player

Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) and Aviation Industry Computer-Based Training Committee (AICC) are the standards that define how e-learning courses collaborate with learning management systems.

SCORM is used for creating units of online training material that can be shared across systems. It is followed by major e-learning actors like NETg, Macromedia, Microsoft, Skillsoft, etc. There are three main levels:

  • Economic level. SCORM allows whole courses or small content units to be reused on different Learning Management Systems (LMS) through the separation of content and context.

  • Pedagogic level. SCORM integrates the notion of pre-requisite or sequencing (e.g. “You cannot go to chapter 2 until you pass Quiz 1”).

  • Technological level. SCORM generates a table of contents as an abstraction layer situated outside the content and the LMS. It helps the content and LMS communicate with each other. Communication is performed by means of bookmarks (“Where is John in the course?”), scoring (“How did John pass the test?”) and time (“How much time did John spent in chapter 1?”).

The LMS365 is compliant with AICC educational standard as well.

The LMS365 SCORM & AICC Player provides users with a list of SCORMs and AICCs along with their status which allows monitoring progress in passing SCORMs and AICCs. It allows uploading Content Packages, gives learners access to SCORMs and AICCs as well as allows them to view, review, continue, and delete their attempts.
