While memory has been a topic of research and speculation for centuries, good educators have long known — from experience — how to improve recall.

Here's an non-technical Q/A session about SCORM. “SCORM Explained,” at scorm.com, is concise enough, but it can seem vague if you’re new to the term. If you’re not involved with the technical side of things… and you’ve seen the terms “SCORM” and “SCORM-compliant”… and you just want to know what it’s about, perhaps this little explanation will help. (Remember, this isn’t really precise; it’s just to help you get an idea.)
