There has been a tremendous increase recently in the number of online classes offered by universities and other institutions. Unfortunately, professional development for teaching online courses has not increased in kind. Thus, many faculty are uncertain of the most appropriate ways to put content online. In this article, we describe SCORM, a set of industry-based standards used to control Learning Management Systems. Due to SCORM's wide acceptance by industry, faculty need to be familiar with SCORM and the implications it has for education. We discuss those implications and conclude with strategies for content design and delivery.
