Top 7 Things To Consider Before Implementing SCORM For Mobile Devices

Written by

After getting my hands dirty with SCORM implementation for mobile devices I think there are some key points to consider before implementing SCORM for mobile devices in any form.

  1. Identify the target device(s) like IPhone, Android based devices, Blackberry, J2ME based device(s) etc,
  2. Identify the Device OS version. e.g. Blackberry 4.6 and 5.0 has very different browser implementations.
  3. Does your targeted mobile device browser support the popup window functionality?
  4. Does your targeted mobile device browser have iframe or frameset support?
  5. Identify the implementation method of SCORM.  e.g. we considered –
    1. JavaScript plus Google Gears API
    2. JavaScript plus HTML 5 database
    3. JavaScript plus native device language
    4. JavaScript plus MIDP profile i.e. J2ME
  6. Consider the application’s running mode; will it be
    1. Online: Requires continuous internet connection
      1. You may like to consider intermittent  internet connection while attempting a course
    2. Offline: Doesn’t require continuous internet connection
  7. Are you planning for cross platform SCORM player
    1. Currently this is possibly only using a web based SCORM player.
    2. Right now it seems offline applications cannot achieve cross-platform SCORM implementation

Keep these in mind before considering SCROM implementation for mobile devices.
