SCORM and IMS Common Cartridge Standards in Sakai


As more and more diverse ways of using Sakai emerge, one need that clearly popped up is the fact that Sakai has a hard time dealing with standards. This BOF is a way for people involved with SCORM players to share practices and develop a strategy.

7. Some Notes

  • Icodeon's business model is to accept all different version of SCORM objects, as imperfect as they might be.
  • IMS Common Cartridge is a standard that includes SCORM. A platform that supports IMS CC would still need a SCORM engine to run SCORM objects.
  • IMS and ADL don't always play nice with one another.
  • Angel is the perfect IMS model LMS.
  • UC Davis is interested in making the SCORM Player better but has its hands full with the new Gradebook right now.
  • rSmart has developed the Icodeon connector for Sakai.
