In the meantime, here are answers to a few FAQs we’ve been getting:

What is SCORM?

SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) is a global standard for packaging eLearning content. It allows users to export and import their previously authored online courses and course data, created via an external authoring tool, into any SCORM-Compliant Learning Management System, such as Odijoo.

How do I create a SCORM Course?

To create a SCORM course, simply use a SCORM-Compliant authoring tool and export it as a SCORM Compliant course. Most of the top tools for creating online course-ware are SCORM Compliant. These include: ArticulateLectoraAdobe PresenterClick2Learn/Toolbook.

What capabilities will SCORM bring to Odijoo?

Odijoo’s integration with SCORM will enable Odijoo course creators with previously-authored SCORM-compliant courses to import their courses into their own Odijoo Classrooms and Campuses, with just a few clicks.

How Easy is Importing a SCORM course into Odijoo?

Very easy! Simply click “Import SCORM Course” from the course author menu, select your course, play around with the settings and you’re ready!

Once I Import a SCORM Course into Odijoo, what can I do with it?

Once the course is imported, it can be added to an Odijoo Classroom. An Odijoo Classroom is a combination of one or more pieces of course material (ie SCORM courses, Odijoo courses, PowerPoint slides), resources (ie quizzes, discussion boards, completion reports, media) and students. Creating a classroom is simple and allows you to administer and teach your online courses to learners.

How will SCORM Make Odijoo Better?

SCORM’s integration with Odijoo will make Odijoo the first-ever SaaS-based, SCORM-Compliant eLearning platform to give users course authoring, publishing and monetization capabilities from their own unique URL, called an Odijoo Campus. Whether you: (a) already have previously authored SCORM content, (b) want to create an interactive course from scratch within Odijoo, or (c) simply want to import some PowerPoint slides and instantly convert them to course-ware, Odijoo will provide you with the service you need, for free.

What is the Cost to Import a SCORM course into Odijoo?

Free! Almost everything in Odijoo is free. There are only two situations in which we charge. For more information, click here.

“ELearning platform ‘Odijoo’ to become SCORM Compliant”

Friday, March 26th, 2010

It was announced today by Odijoo that the free Social Learning platform and Rapid Course Management System will become SCORM-Compliant in about a month’s time.

SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) is a global standard for packaging eLearning content. It allows users to export and import their previously authored online courses and course data, created via an external authoring tool, into any SCORM-Compliant Learning Management System, such as Odijoo.

Odijoo’s integration with SCORM will enable Odijoo course creators with previously-authored eLearning content to import their courses into their own Odijoo Classrooms and Campuses, with just a few clicks. Users will still be able to take advantage of all of Odijoo’s other free features, including free course authoring, publishing, hosting, administration and social networking capabilities.

“We’ve seen the number of users steadily increase for Odijoo since its release in October,” commented Shevy Levy, the visionary behind Odijoo, “and while overall feedback has been positive so far, the one request we do get from time to time is the ability to bring previously created courses into Odijoo. This demand made SCORM the logical next step for Odijoo.”

SCORM’s integration with Odijoo will make Odijoo the first-ever SaaS-based, SCORM-Compliant eLearning platform to give users course authoring, publishing and monetization capabilities from their own unique URL, called an Odijoo Campus.

About Odijoo:

SCORM is Coming to Odijoo

Friday, March 19th, 2010

We’re excited to announce that in about a month’s time, Odijoo will be fully SCORM-Compliant!

SCORM is a global standard for packaging eLearning content. It gives users the ability to create online courses in a course authoring tool like Articulate , Lectora , Adobe Presenter , Click2Learn/Toolbook and more and then export the course into any Learning Management System, including Odijoo.

You’ll be able to simply create your SCORM course in a SCORM-Compliant authoring tool, export it as a SCORM course and then import that SCORM course into Odijoo. Once the course is in an Odijoo Classroom, you can add a variety of features to it, including other Courses (SCORM or not), PowerPoints, Quizzes, Discussions and of course, students. You can also put the course into your own Odijoo Private Campus  or sell enrollment to the course  in the Marketplace .

The purpose of SCORM is to save you time. If you already have SCORM-Compliant Online Learning content that you’ve developed, you will now be able to import it into Odijoo with a click of a button. You’ll still be able to use the built-in authoring tool and import PowerPoint features in Odijoo, but for those who already have prepared content, SCORM provides an easier solution.

We expect Odijoo to be SCORM-Compliant in about a month’s time; we’ll keep you posted. Click here to learn more about SCORM.
