Platform-Independent Courseware Sharing

By Takao Shimomura Adriano Montanaro

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Apr. 2013

Courseware distribution between different platforms is the major issue of current e-Learning. SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) is one of the solutions for courseware sharing. However, to make SCORM-conformable courseware, some knowledge about HTML and JavaScript is required. This paper presents a SWF (Sharable Web Fragment)-based e-Learning system, where courseware is created with sharable Web fragments such as Web pages, images and other resources, and the courseware can be distributed to another platform by export and import facilities. It also demonstrates how to export a subject that contains assignments and problems and how to import the whole subject, only the assignments, or only the problems. The exported meta-information is architecture-independent and provides a model of courseware distribution.
