Who needs eLearning modules (.SCORM files)?
Many educators and Learning Management System (LMS) Administrators are just getting exposed to eLearning modules and .scorm files. These LMS Administrators and educators were fine uploading .pdf documents or plain PowerPoint presentations as their education for years. They might have thought that eLearning needed to be created by large companies, people with coding abilities, or graphic designers. Now eLearning is giving organizations the ability to provide more engaging education that is narrated, contains games, and has built in quizzes. Let's discuss .scorm files and how they can benefit your organization.
.SCORM stands for Shareable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM). It is a collection of standards and specifications for web-based electronic educational technology (also called e-learning). These standards and specifications define communications between client side content and a host system known as a learning management system (LMS). Essentially, it works similar to a DVD. DVD's are formatted to work with any DVD Player. Similarly, .scorm files are formatted to work with any LMS.
This is important to know as an LMS Administrator or educator. Having this information open doors to better education for healthcare organizations. Healthcare organizations no longer need to rely on .pdf, PowerPoints, or the few modules that came with their LMS. They can either create their own .scorm files or purchase them from a company they trust. EZ Compliance Now offers .scorm files for many education topics that will work with your organizations LMS.
