HICO-solutions offer a modular approach to develop online learning material following the recommendations of the SCORM-standard from the “Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initative”.
The modular approach, which segregated project development into separate teams assigned to different modules, facilitated software development life cycle (SDLC) focus, management and operations. Shareable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) is a collection of standards and specifications for web-based electronic educational technology (also called e-learning). It defines communications between client-side content and a host system which is commonly supported by a learning management system. SCORM is a specification of the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative from the Office of the United States Secretary of Defense. SCORM 2004 was introduced as a complex idea called sequencing, which is a set of rules that specifies the order in which a learner may experience content objects. In simple terms, they constrain a learner to a fixed set of paths through the training material, permit the learner to “bookmark” their progress when taking breaks and assure the acceptability of test scores achieved by the learner. The standard uses XML and it is based on the results of work done by AICC, IEEE LTSC and Ariadne.
