For all FOSS Business trainers: Dokeos compliant with SCORM

Dear FOSS Business Trainer community


We would like to highlight that the Dokoes platform is compliant to SCORM. This means that Dokeos meets all the standards as defined by the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative. SCORM stands for Sharable Content Object Reference Model and essentially is a collection of standards and specifications for web-based e-learning.


In practice this means that if you'd like to use our FOSS Business Training materials within another common learning management system, such as for example Moodle, you can just go ahead, download them at our Dokeos system and afterwards upload them to your system and they will look exactly the same as before – therefore this could help you saving a lot of time!!!


However, alternatively we invite you to use our Dokeos system for your trainings and to create your course within this environment. Again, if you wish to set up a localized version of the training materials, just duplicate the existing modules and modify them.


If you need further help or support on this, please do not hesitate to post your detailed questions to the Foss Business Trainers Mailing List at FBT[at]it-inwent.org and we will get back to you!


More about Scorm

According to Wikipedia, SCORM “defines communications between client side content and a host system called the run-time environment (commonly a function of a learning management system).”

The latest version (SCORM 2004) introduced 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 path 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. For the Dokeos platform this is particularly helpful, as it allows learners to follow workshops for a longer period of time, without having to sit in front of the computer all the time.
