in reponse to "SCORM is not for everyone"- ADL responds
I am just finishing up my Masters in Instructional Technology at USF in Tampa, where SCORM is becomg a hot topic. And I think everyone agrees that standards and parametes are vital. And, that every journey begins with a first step. But wouldn't a more simple solution be, to design all elearning courses based on a data-base or flat file configuation. I bring up this thought, because I believe that future WBT will rely more heavily on gaming technology and manipulation of smart objects similar to the computer generated cartoons and movies. At present the field appears to be satisfied with fancy manipulations of text and screens. Full exploitation of WBTs potential to produce a picture, INSTEAD of a thousand words of text, does not seem to be on the horizon. I am cautious in this case that SCORM may hamper advances to the more graphical representations and interaction of which WBT is capable.
