SCORM Compressor in Bytecasting
The term SCORM stands for Sharable Content Object Reference Model and describes how to package and compress learning content in an industry-standard way. The standard was developed by the Interactive Media Committee (IMC) of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT). SCORM learning content is often used on online learning management systems, Compressing SCORM files ensures that the content will work properly across many different types of SCORM-compliant systems, regardless of the type of computer on which the course materials are being viewed. Short for Shareable Content Object Reference Model, SCORM is a standardized set of instructions for delivering e-learning material. The set includes instructions on how to assemble courses, deliver them via various media and track learners’ progress. It’s not used widely outside of e-learning, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get in on SCORM. With some time and effort, it’s possible to compress your course into SCORM without making too many sacrifices. The result will be a smaller file size and better retention rates among learners who take your courses online or offline.

With the advent of SCORM-compliant learning content delivery, it’s become easier than ever to create and deliver electronic training courses online. This includes courses that are delivered in the form of SCORM files, which conform to the latest version of the SCORM specification for e-learning content and can be used by many learning management systems and e-learning authoring tools. However, SCORM files do have one drawback when it comes to delivering them to end users – they’re fairly large, sometimes ranging from several hundred megabytes to over a gigabyte in size.
