Description

The purpose of this discussion paper is to examine approaches for extending the ADL SCORM standard with additional metadata based on ADL approved methods. An introduction to the ADL SCORM standard is presented followed by a description of the SCORM components. Examples of how SCORM is lacking LOM in the areas pedagogy, adaptive learning and learning assessment data are then discussed. According to ADL guidelines, there are three predefined methods to extend SCORM: (a) adding new metadata elements, (b) adding new vocabulary for elements, and (c) references to an internal or external XML files using the location element. Each extension method is examined in detail and then is followed by a discussion of the three approaches.
