This module discusses a proposed solution for SCORM 2.0 and its ability to satisfy a defined set of issues. It was written as a section of an original document titled, SCORM 2.0: Learning in the Mainstream and was submitted to LETSI for consideration in their SCORM 2.0 project and the SCORM 2.0 Workshop in Pensacola, Florida in October 2008.

Scorm 2.0: proposed solution

SCORM will never solve all the problems associated with learning, education or training. As the acronym clearly states, it is primarily about the sharing of contentobjects [in training and education – implied]. It has been argued in this paper that theprevious focus of SCORM, while appropriate for the time at which it was conceived, is now too narrow and has suffered from some problems that cannot be resolved without anapproach that includes a structured content model together with flexible levels of aggregation. (It should be noted that IMS Global has also moved to an approach thatenables levels of aggregation in the Content Packaging v1.2 specification.) Irrespective of the structure and composition of the next generation of SCORM, there will continue tobe a requirement to allow flexibility in the implementation. That will always mean that implementation choices will affect the levels of interoperability, reuse, adaptabilityetc, however, hopefully less so in a new model than in the past.

The requirements and solutions proposed in this paper are not intended to be comprehensive. This paper will not propose solutions to all of the issues raised withinthe scoping section. More specifically, the scope of the proposal may be tabulated as follows.

Potential of the proposed solution to satisfy the scope criteria
Capability Scope Criteria
*Subject also to implementation choices
  1. True Interoperability
  2. Reusability in an organization-wide context
  3. The need for a structured content model
  4. Granularity, aggregation, independence and rendering
  5. Smooth transition between current and future SCORM
  1. Implications of service-orientated approaches
  2. Accommodation of new approaches to LET
  3. Metadata, CORDRA and syndication
  1. Cross-domain scripting
  2. Server-side scripting

The core of this proposal is to adopt an existing structured content model as part of SCORM. This paper is neutral to the reasons for LETSI seeking to implement a new contentaggregation model for SCORM 2.0, rather it takes the approach that if this is necessary, then replacing the aggregation model alone does not provide sufficient value to warrantthe effort or resulting impact across the LET communities, including vendors. LETSI’s approach to gathering requirements tends to support this notion.

Given SCORM 2.0 deadlines published on the LETSI site, it is not feasible to develop a new structured content and aggregation model for SCORM. This is also outside of thestated scope of work of LETSI. On that basis, an existing structured content and aggregation model needs to be selected for adoption. While several such standards exist, they are mostly quite narrow and industry specific in their focus and do not provideeasy pathways for adoption into learning communities.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
