The Content Aggregation Model defines a powerful model for breaking content into arbitrarily sized units of reuse. These units are called Sharable Content Objects (SCOs) and Assets.
In SCORM terminology:
SCO (Sharable Content Object)
A SCO is a collection of one or more assets and other SCOs that
represents a logical unit of learning.
SCOs cannot launch another SCO as this is a proper function of the LMS .
It is an "aggregation map" of assets and SCOs that represents a learning unit (a module, a course, ...).
The definition of an SCO is deliberately vague; it can be a single web page or a web-based training module containing hundreds of pages, images and other assets. The definition of an SCO is left up to the content author. Each SCO should be universally reusable.
