Current SCORM support is provided by the LORS package: .LRN to incorporate IMS Metadata (IMS-MD 1.2.1) and IMS Content Packaging (IMS-CP 1.1.4) specifications as well as ADL SCORM extensions (SCORM 1.2). See Educational_Standards.
- It was initially developed by Ernie Ghiglione
- E-LANE project
- Adam Ullman added the SCORM applet for the run time interface from Concurrent Technologies
- SITT (Michelle y Giancarlo) added delivery-scorm to collect the scores in the database
- Dave Bauer
LORS Central: version handling, live version management, single item add/edit, others. Uses Content Repository directly, instead of file-storage
- Incompatibilities between the java server and client environments
- LORSM: Emma and Don are doing bug-fixing
- LORS central: Galileo is doing bug-fixing. It clones LORSM, so improvemnts in LORSM have to be integrated
Community members interests:
- Matthew Coupe: Requires SCORM support to run SCORM courses. LORS central will be a nice to have feature as will integration with assessments, forums and chat.
- aDeNu Group (UNED) requires SCORM support to run accessible SCORM based courses for ALPE project
- Innova Group (UNED) is migrating LORS to Oracle to provide SCORM support in aLF (UNED customization of dotLRN)
- Galileo wants to deploy LORS Central
- Don Baccus needs basic course sequencing for a current client project
See SCORM Roadmap presented at the Workshop on Educational Standards and Methodologies support in dotLRN at OpenACS and .LRN Spring Conference, Vienna 2007.
- Fix bugs both in LORSM and LORS Central
- Assure that SCORM sessions are recorded
- Dynamic integration of Forums and File storage (as Assessment is done)
- Combine LORSM and LORS Central to include version handling, live version management, single item add/edit, content repository instead of file-storage, but keeping their different scopes: LORS central handles very well centralized management, although it could do in a per course basis as LORSM does, which is for course level management
- Maintain both probably is not a good approach, LORS Central provides what LORSM does, but Central has features such as: 1) item online add/edit, 2) single place to deploy one course and its versioning among different class instances, 3) native content-repository support (not using file-storage). Note that 1) & 2) are needs for real world deployment of courses.
- Integrate LORS inside platform space (instead of in full page display)
- Integrate portlets (forums, assessment, file storage) instead of the whole page
- Improve accessibility
- Implement SCORM 2004 v3
- SCORM 1.2: ATutor, ANGEL, Kewl, OLAT, Docebo, WebCT
- SCORM 1.3: Blackboard, Claroline, Desire2Learn, TeleTop, Moodle
See eduTools for a comparative comparison.
An appropriate SCORM support is a MUST for dotLRN to be competitive.
