SCORM explained to teachers
SCORM is a model to produce LOs which are interoperable and therefore reusable. This model is becoming the de facto standard with regards to communication rules between the LO and the platform (LMS), and the packaging of LOs so that they can be transported between one repository or a platform to another.
Any teacher who wishes to develop content for elearning only needs to know what SCORM means. The platform and content tool developers should worry about conforming to SCORM. The teacher's role is restricted to pedagogy.
