If you have not heard of SCORM, watch the following video:
SCORM stands for “Sharable Content Object Reference Model”. It is a set of technical standards for e-learning products to make sure learning resources are re-usable / interoperable across different learning modules. Sounds familiar? Yes, this concept is very similar to our Rhizr except that Rhizr is based on an interoperable pedagogical design whereas SCORM is the technical framework.
There is also an updated version of SCORM called the Tin Can API. Some advantages of the Tin Can API include cross-platform compatibility and analytics. I think this can be something we want to study when we think about the future of Rhizr and other self-directed learning project initiatives.
