Apologies for cross posting.....
Thought this might be of interest to you...Some of you may have noticed
an article that Scott posted to the CETIS website on Friday summarising
a report in the Online Learning Magazine called "SCORM: Clarity or
Calamity?". The report questions whether the underlying model behind
SCORM is actually useful for teaching and learning. To my mind both
Scott's summary and the original article are very balanced and raise
some interesting and valid questions about the SCORM approach.
A representative of ADL has now entered the debate on this article and
has posted a comment on the CETIS website that begins "Since this
article was submitted - the reporter has been fired, the print version
of Online Magazine has ceased publication......"
