Common Cartridge the end of Scorm ?
At the recent Learning Gateway Conference Microsoft talked about their new content production software Semblio. They also said it would support common cartridge. My first reaction was, no we are only just getting to grips with the concept of scorm.
After some research I found this site IMS Global Learning Consortium: Common Cartridge FAQs.
I can now understand why Microsoft are using common cartridge as its more suitable for digital content and for most Learning Platforms. The issues associated with scorm and runtime are taken away
I only wished they had explained the differences.

We've been using IMS imports into Moodle for some time.
I was under the impression that IMS couldn't deal with importing quiz scores back into moodle from packed apps, but SCORM could handle it -is this just how IMS/Scorm have been implemeted on moodle?
Is the 'IMS common cartridge' different to 'standard' IMS content which has been around since about v1.6 ?

From the brief look I've had, the two standards are complimentary. Common Cartridge appears to be a standard for lesson content whilst SCORM is a standard for courses. I imagine that you could create a number of Common Cartridge compliant objects and then create a SCORM compliant course that contains them.
BTW... The MS Semblio thing looks rather sexy but I can't help thinking that the sexy stuff on the MS website would be out of the reach of most teachers' production skills - it can be a struggle persuading teachers to take content from Boardworks materials and create custom presentations!

I think that explains my question. We've been using IMS and Scorm along side each other.
