Call for White Papers for SCORM 2.0

LETSI, Learning Education Training Systems Interoperability, is entering a phase of study for the next version of SCORM, version 2.0.

Of course, given the little level of adoption of SCORM 2004 (or 1.3), this might seem a little premature for some, but the making of such a large norm takes time, so it’s probably better to get started early.

The 2.0 version is said (in the announcement of the Call for White Papers ) “to support the use of open software standards in learning technology”, which is a nice turn of event as, although SCORM 1.x was never against open standards, it never actually pretended to focus or support them. It just used “JavaScript” (which is not really standard in this appellation) and supposedly HTML or anything that would allow the use of JavaScript.

Dokeos hasn’t got any White Paper to submit though, mostly because we didn’t implement SCORM 2004 yet, so it’s pretty difficult to know what’s missing in the latest version… The White Papers submission deadline is August, 15 so we won’t be able to first support SCORM 2004 and then start thinking about things we would like to see there, but it would have been a pleasure for me to participate in the making of SCORM 2.0.
