How do SCORM and LMS work?
LMS stands for Learning Management System it is a software that companies use to develop, deliver, and track training for their employees, clients, and partners.
Today, SCORM and LMS have become two different sides of the same coin. SCORM stands for Sharable Content Object (SCO) Reference Model (RM), where SCO means the packaging content element decides how a piece of content should be physically delivered. The content which is created within SCORM is shareable and can be reused across multiple tools and platforms. While creating eLearning courses with SCORM compliant authoring tools the output is as a Zip folder that contains all necessary information to publish and host the course on SCORM compliant LMS.
And RM means a specification or set of rules followed by eLearning professionals. SCORM includes standards for packaging and describing content, how the LMS launches content, how content is communicated to the LMS, and how learners navigate from module to module. The SCORM Run-Time specification states that the LMS should launch content in a web browser, either in a new window or in a frameset. All of this communication happens within the context of a single attempt on a single SCO.

- Learning path
