October 5, 2007 eSchool News article
The Schools Interoperability Framework Association (SIFA) and the Defense Department's Advanced Distributive Learning (ADL) Initiative are collaborating to improve interoperability in K-12 schools. Through the development of a new version of the Sharable Content Object Reference Model, or SCORM, the two groups hope to transform the way education content is shared, with a focus on improved teaching and learning. "Core SCORM" will feature capabilities including the aggregation of learning content, search and discovery, and tracking student achievement.
