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)
