SCORM stands for Shareable Content Object Reference Model.
The SCORM standard began with the American army working on new training methods to train its personnel and make them effective in different branches.
For this purpose, in-service training activities were initiated. Since this training need cannot be met face to face due to the conditions of the military personnel, it was decided to start distance education studies.
After this decision, when distance education contents started to be developed by tender; It has been seen that each company develops separate content and all of them work only in the Learning Management System (LMS) developed by that company.
