The ones who were born before the nineties realized when e-learning started to be a feasible education model. Since then several key factors have evolved dramatically:
- the advent of Internet and the non ending progress of telecommunications speeds and bandwidth
- the huge improvement of software authoring and management tools
All these wouldn’t have been effective if no standards would have ruled the market.
SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) appeared to define communications between client side content and a host system (called “the run-time environment”), and how content has to be packaged to be transported to/from other systems. Moodle is hundred percent compliant with SCORM.
Producing content with Moodle protects your investment as most of the effort can be reused in case of need. There are two cases to consider here:
- Moving your content to another Moodle hosting provider
- Moving your content to another LMS
In the second case you have to worry about SCORM compliance on the destination LMS. If that is respected you should be able to reuse most of your content.
If you work with us, we help you to transport your courses to Moodle LMS and we maintain back up copies of it every time a change in content occurs.
