This article explains what SCORM Dispatch is and how it may relate to your course. Note: Not every course uses SCORM.
What is SCORM Dispatch?
SCORM is an abbreviation for Shareable Content Object Reference Model. It is a set of standards used to create an eLearning product, such as an online course or learning management system.
There are two versions of SCORM Dispatch that EVERFI currently uses: SCORM 1.2 and SCORM 2004 (3rd edition).
Why it Matters
When EVERFI creates an online course using the standards of SCORM Dispatch it integrates easily into a learning management system or site also built using SCORM Dispatch because the same specifications exist. This allows a quicker and more seamless integration of a course.
How you will use SCORM Dispatch
See Foundry SCORM Dispatch Integration for more details
If you are using a learning management system or site that uses the SCORM standard, EVERFI will provide you a course that also uses SCORM.
For each course, you will receive a “SCORM dispatch package”. The SCORM dispatch package is delivered as a package file that you will upload into your learning management system or site that hosts the course.
The SCORM dispatch package includes the following information:
- Organization ID (ID of the org)
- Content ID (ID of the course)
- Package ID (ID of the package, used for mapping users to content. New packages must be created to redeploy the same course, location, and role)
- Geolocation (Location of learner taking the course)
- SCORM Version (1.2 and 2004)
- Role (Role of learner taking the course, ex: Supervisor or Non-Supervisor)
