9th Annual Army DL conference - Results


JCA Solutions talk regarding our prototype Metis product and student analytics was well received. It seems that there is a real need in the community for such an application. I have posted our conference presentation at The conference, as a whole, was great, there was a lot of good information at the talks. You can find info on all the talks and what

JCA Solutions will be exhibiting next week at the Learning Solutions Conference and Expo Mar 24-26 in Orlando Fl. We like to use these events to meet our current clients and discover solutions for new clients as well. Feel free to come by and visit us, we will be at booth 507. See you there.

9th Annual Army DL conference


Again this year JCA Solutions will have a booth at the Army DL conference in Newport News VA March 15-17 and I will be speaking at one of the break out sessions. I will be speaking about the white paper entitled "Tracking and Reporting SCORM Data Using Web Services: An LMS Agnostic Approach". The basis of the paper is that developers can create web services that track and report SCORM, and other



LETSI, Learning Education Training Systems Interoperability, the international, nonprofit federation dedicated to improving individual and organizational learning, has taken on the task of developing the next generation of SCORM, the Sharable Content Object Reference Model. As part of this initiative, LETSI is soliciting White Papers from all stakeholders interested in shaping the future

How do I make my existing e-learning content SCORM conformant?


For many content developers trying to make the jump to SCORM, the first question is often “How do I make my existing e-learning content SCORM conformant?” Content is generally compatible with SCORM if: It can be delivered via a web-browserIt can be self-contained (i.e. packaged with all dependencies wholly in a ZIP file)It does NOT depend on server-side scripting languages (such as JSP, ASP,

Simple Sequencing?


One of the primary changes of SCORM from version 1.2 to version 1.3 (2004) was the introduction of the Sequencing Definition Model (described in the SCORM Sequencing and Navigation book). The SCORM Sequencing Definition Model is a "declarative information model" derived from the IMS ( Simple Sequencing (SS) specification. The specification is labeled "simple" because it defines

Content Organizations: Activities and Trees


A SCORM content package can define one or more Organizations that describe how resources are logically organized into a learning experience. An organization is defined as a hierarchical tree of items or activities.Each item in the hierarchy represents an instructionally relevant unit of learning. Items can be nested to any arbitrary depth and have learning taxonomy labels applied to them. For

SCORM Sequencing and Navigation


A learner experiencing SCORM content does not necessarily exercise complete control over which learning object they experience and when. Content developers determine how much control is given to the learner based on organization and sequencing information defined in the content package's manifest. When accessing SCORM content, a learner will experience only one learning object at a time.



SCORM's Run-Time API (application programming interface) is the communication mechanism used by a SCO (shareable content object) and an LMS (learning management system). The run-time API communicates state between a content object and the LMS (e.g., inititlized, terminated, and/or in an error condition) and is used for retrieving and storing data (e.g., score, time limits, etc.). RTE/LMS

SCORM Shareable Content Objects (SCOs)


A Shareable Content Object (SCO) is a launchable learning object (resource) that communicates with the run-time environment that launched it. A SCO must be designed so that it can be launched in a standalone web window, or in a frame in a HTML frameset. A SCO is special because when launched for a learner, in the learner's web-browser, it will communicate information back to the LMS that launched

SCORM Manifest Files


Every SCORM content package contains an XML manifest file that describes the package and its contents. The name of the manifest file is always imsmanifest.xml and it must appear in the root of the content package.The manifest file is a structured inventory of the content of the package. It defines the physical files within the content package and how they are combined to form learning objects (

SCORM Content Packages


A SCORM content package is a self-contained ZIP file containing certain contents defined by the SCORM standard. The file is known as a Package Interchange File (PIF) and it contains all files needed to deliver the content package via a SCORM run-time environment and/or learning management system (LMS).Mandatory Content Package contents:XML manifest file (imsmanifest.xml)All schema/definition (.

SCORM Resources: Assets and SCOs


In SCORM, a Content Object is a web-deliverable learning unit. At its most basic a content object is just an HTML page or document that can be viewed with a web-browser. A content object can use all same technologies a web-page can use (Flash, JavaScript, frames, images, etc). However, resources cannot be pages that require a server-side engine to process, such as ASP, PHP, or JSP pages. Content

SCORM DevNet - SCORM Developer Network


JCA Solutions has launched SCORM DevNet, the SCORM Developer Network. The site is still under development, but already offers some useful resources for SCORM developers. Currently the site offers SCORM-related news, jobs, and documentation -- and forums are on the way.
