Abstract

The purpose of this study is to create a Visualized Online Simple Sequencing Authoring Tool (VOSSAT) that provides an easy-to-use and web-based interface to help instructors edit existing SCORM-compliant content packages. With vigorous development of the Internet, web-based e-learning systems have become more and more popular. Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) 1.3, the most popular standard for the consistency of course format among different web-based e-learning systems, provides the Simple Sequencing Specification (SSS). Like supply chain management, the inputs of VOSSAT are SCORM-compliant content packages; the outputs of VOSSAT are content packages to be delivered at SCORM-compliant Learning Management System. In terms of authoring processes of metadata file, a teacher needs to only fill some options in the annotation windows. Then, the VOSSAT automatically and dynamically generates the paragraphs needed for presenting the sequencing of learning path properly. The methodology of this study is to analyze the IMS SSS behaviors and to propose VOSSAT as a module on Content Repository Management System (CRMS). The results of this study are shown by scenarios. Finally, the implications of this study for education are also included.
