Stewardship of SCORM Moving to International Arena

The Defense Department is relinquishing the stewardship of SCORM, a collection of standards for e-learning interoperability, so that the initiative can more readily fulfill its purpose as an international e-learning standard.

SCORM will move from the Defense Department's Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) organization, which started the initiative, to the International Federation for Learning, Education & Training Systems Interoperability (LETSI). LETSI is being designed as an international collaboration of government agencies, non-profit organizations, and for profit companies, which are vested in interoperable learning, education, and training systems.
