SCORM and LTI tracking
Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) is a collection of standards and specifications for web-based electronic educational technology. It defines communications between client side content and a host system (called “the run-time environment”), which is commonly supported by a learning management system. SCORM also defines how content may be packaged into a transferable ZIP file called “Package Interchange Format”. IMS Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) is a standard set of specifications for allowing third party learning applications (or “tool providers”) to integrate with educational platforms (or “tool consumers”). Some of our plans provide access to shareable SCORM packages and support for sharing via LTI; we collect limited user data in order to track resource usage (within our service or via placement on 3rd party Learning Management Systems). Data collected can include: name, unique identifier, date/time of access and access URL.
