SCORM – Why does it matter and why do you need it?

Imagine this situation.

You want your content to be interactive and fun, yet you also want to have control over how the learner consumes content (“First read this, then watch that, then take a quick test, etc.”), and you want to keep track of their progress and score.

You want to do this cost-effectively without too much fuss over content development, and deliver the course from your existing Learning Management System in an efficient, easy manner.

You’d like to buy some of your courses from off-the-shelf content providers, but you may like to create custom courses in-house for certain topics.  You want the previously mentioned features to be available to you in both these cases.

Just creating HTML5 interactivities won’t do.  You need an easier, more “interoperable” solution which everyone agrees on, and the content library publisher is able to give you content in a standard format at bulk rates.  You want to be able to take the externally-sourced content as well as the internally-built course should be deployable and usable in a standard way.
