SCORM Benefits for Online Training
Let’s talk about the diversity of e-learning resources that allow you to enrich your online training.
The organization of the learning material in a SCORM format is a wonderful alternative to the use of your LMS inbuilt tools. The main advantage of the SCORM is its interoperability. If you produce e-learning SCORM content, it allows uploading a number of different materials into the SCORM compliant LMS at once. SCORM package allows a seamless and simple integration thanks to its easy portability across Learning Management Systems. No reconfiguration or complex installation is needed to deliver a SCORM package to an online course from any location (see image1).
