I have decided that I will no longer be spending any time as a volunteer to support or improve SCORM 2004 in Moodle so that I can focus on more current development tasks.
I will continue as a volunteer to maintain support for SCORM 1.2 and AICC packages in Moodle and the new Tin Can work that is currently underway.
Thanks for all your work on it. I'm curious about the current/final status of SCORM. I know there would be a lot more work required in order for it to pass all of the tests, on the other hand it SEEMS that packages which don't use sequencing APPEAR to work.
Would it be accurate to say that "most simple packages should work, apart from sequencing"? (I checked the meta tracker to see how many issues were open or closed, not that they are all closed I'd have to click each one and analyze it.)
I found these comments on why 2004 was never widely adopted interesting:
I just closed approx 200 bugs in the tracker - about 180 of those were related to an individual ADL test - last time I ran the tests we only passed 2 of the ADL 2004 tests.
It would be accurate to say some simple SCORM 2004 packages might work but these are likely to be packages that are mainly using SCORM 1.2 functionality and not any of the more advanced features that SCORM 2004 provides.
as mentioned in my blog post I will make best efforts to avoid regressions in the existing SCORM 2004 code.
but I can't guarantee that SCORM 2004 regressions won't occur and if/when they do I am unlikely to spend large amount of volunteer time to fix unless large amounts of support from other community members is provided.
Thank you for all your work and support.
