SCORM API 1.2 and 2004 API

Sharable Content Object Reference Model.Advancity provides SCORM 2004 and 1.2 API to companies who want to make their LMS's SCORM compliant. Besides its cost and time efficiency, Advancity has spent enourmous effort to prepare a high performance and full SCORM compliant API. Advancity's SCORM API 2004 and 1.2 has been developed by reading, comprehending and coding over 2000 pages of specifications. With these products, you can convert or create a LMS in 1 week with all the SCORM features.

SCORM 2004 API Features

Advancity's SCORM 2004 Compliant LMS is formed of four modules. These are

  1. Content Package Import module,
  2. Sequencing & Navigation (S&N) module,
  3. Run-Time Environment(RTE) Module,
  4. User Interface (UI) module.

Advancity's SCORM 2004 LMS is implemented in pure EcmaScript (a.k.a. javascript) with the exception of few coding in server side scripting for Package Import module and client to server communication. Since server side scripting is kept in minimum, it can be easily converted to any server side scripting language (PHP, JSP, PL, ASP,...) with minimum effort. Figure below summarizes how SCORM 2004 LMS implementation is established.

SCORM 2004 API

  1. Content Package Import: A content package prepared in Package Interchange File (PIF)  format is imported to the LMS Server through Content Package Import Module. From now on, the content is ready to be published for the learning experience.

  2. XML Engine: Communication between Clients and LMS Server for sending database queries and receiving the corresponding results are performed through XML Engine.

  3. JSON Serialization Engine: Communication between Clients and LMS Server for complex data structures such as activity tree structure for learning content, and tracking data for learner is performed through JSON serialization engine. Accordingly, serialized activity tree, and tracking data is kept on LMS Server as files formed of JSON string.

  4. RTE-S&N Interaction: RTE and S&N modules interact throughout learning experience of learner to deliver appropriate content as specified in SCORM® 2004 3rd Edition Sequencing and Navigation Version 1.0

  5. UI-RTE Interaction: Navigation requests within a learning content are send to RTE by UI, which are processed by RTE as specified in SCORM® 2004 3rd Edition Run-Time Environment  Version 1.0 to form the appropriate tracking information.

  6. Client-UI Interaction: Each client can launch a learning content and navigate within the learning content through UI.
