types of SCORM Supported by QuoDeck?

Shareable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) is a collection of standards and specifications for web-based electronic educational technology (also called e-learning). It defines communications between client side content and a host system (called “the run-time environment”), which is commonly supported by a learning management system.

QuoDeck supports both older and recent versions of SCORMs that are SCORM 1.2 and SCORM 2004 2nd Ed. QuoDeck provides guidelines for using SCORM content which adhere to Micro Learning and Mobile First principles of Learning Standards, which are as follows.

1) The module version should belong to one of the two standards viz. SCORM 1.2 or SCORM 2004 2nd Ed.
2) The module should be concise and have filesize less than 50 megabytes.

Ensuring these compatibility and content size guidelines enables you easily use the SCORM content with QuoDeck LMS. We restrict the SCORM file size being less than 50 megabytes considering the internet Bandwidth Limitations of Mobile Learning Environment.
