Abstract

Developing a pedagogical learning content that can be delivered among different Learning Management Systems (LMSs) is a critical task for most instructors. Although the Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) has proposed a mechanism allowing the exchange of learning contents between LMSs, to embed learning strategies to SCORM-compliant learning content is still an open issue. This paper proposes a mechanism to construct a SCORM-compliant strategy repository which contains learning strategies. The strategy repository can be adapted to satisfy the requirement of instructor for designing learning content with strategies embedded. The strategy repository presented in this paper is with the following advantages: (a) the strategies stored are domain independent; (b) the strategies offered are adaptable; (c) the strategies saved can be continuously evolved; (d) the strategies stored can be reusable.
