AICC Position Paper for SCORM 2.0

During today's meetings we discussed the AICC Position Paper on SCORM 2.0 (click the attachments tab or download link for full paper). Interested parties should visit the page and add their comments to the LETSI wiki before the October 15-17, 2008 LETSI SCORM 2.0 Workshop (sold out). A paper background and summary follows below.

As original contributors to SCORM and as representatives of a community of practice with a great volume of long-lived legacy content, the AICC has submitted this paper expressing our high level requirements for the existing model and for the evolution of SCORM going forward.

The AICC Position Paper addresses 7 major considerations for SCORM evolution:

  1. Maintenance of a data model consistent with the requirements of all communities of practice, or a reliable methodology for profiling to suit the specific needs of any COP.
  2. Creation of a web services based communication protocol.
  3. Modification and simplification of the sequencing model.
  4. Enhanced functionality for capturing assessment data.
  5. Enhanced functionality for mobile computing.
  6. Introduction of portfolio or portable records functionality.
  7. Introduction of functionality for simulation interoperability.

The AICC podcast series continues with some vendor perspective provided by Eric Shepherd of Questionmark. In interview format, Eric's responses provide insight on the benefits of participation and the AICC open processes.

Eric and Questionmark have been participating in the AICC for about 10 years, and have also obtained a record number of back-to-back AICC certifications for their product, Questionmark Perception. All that and managing to do hundreds of interoperable integrations across the globe too. Finally, with some prompting from Tom, Eric also chimes in with some tips on fascinating travel destinations that are bound to help support the aviation industry.
