What is a SCORM Content Package?
SCORM stands for “Sharable Content Object Reference Model”. SCORM is a standard format that different authoring applications use to format content in such a way that the content can easily be imported into a learning management system, like Blackboard. A SCORM Content Package is a .zip file that contains content formatted in such a way that it can easily be imported into most Learning Management Systems.
