Anything that calls itself the Shareable Courseware Object Reference Model (SCORM) can be accused of taking itself too seriously, but, in 1999, when the first SCORM was launched, the situation was serious. With everyone jumping on the e-learning bandwagon, and new learning management systems and content libraries being launched practically every week, something had to be done to make sure these predominantly proprietary products could communicate with one another. The head of e-learning for one of the world's largest telecoms companies was recently heard to say that he had experienced so many problems getting content up and running that he was thinking of giving up on tracking altogether.
