What Is the Difference Between SCORM and AICC?by David Dunning
SCORM stands for Sharable Content Object Reference Model and AICC stands for Aviation Industry Computer-Based Training Committee. Both SCORM and AICC refer to sets of technical standards, specifications and guidelines that apply to learning-management systems -- Web-based software applications used to plan, implement and assess learning -- although some notable differences exist between them.
The SCORM specifications are principally concerned with creating small electronic learning objects, which can be delivered, over and over again, by any LMS that uses the same version of SCORM in which the objects were created. The AICC specifications, on the other hand, are principally concerned with the creation on training courses, which are usually but not always delivered through learning-management systems.
