D2L - What is a SCORM Learning Object (UW-Madison)

SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) is a technical standard that defines how learning management systems (like D2L) will interact with small exercises (called "learning objects").

A SCORM exercise can be used to create content that both displays information to students, and if desired assesses them with a grade (based on completing a quiz, or having simply viewed the content). SCORM also provides enhanced reporting of student progress within an exercise.

While SCORM-compliant learning objects (or SCO's) can be created by coding from scratch, it is common to use one of the following tools:

While one must purchase any of the above software, they can also be evaluated on a limited basis or used at some of the campus labs.
