Hi, all!

I am just starting with SCORM and trying to realise some main concepts, used in MLC and SLK. In "SLK/MLC SDK Documentation" some of them are not defined but used. There is the only mention:

"SCORM defines many concepts not described in detail in this documentation set, including the following: resource, interaction, local objective, global objective, run-time environment (RTE), sequencing and navigation (SN), raw & scaled score, correct response string, completion & success status, comments from LMS.

To learn about these concepts, read the SCORM documentation set."

The reference link mentioned is - http://www.adlnet.gov/scorm/

I downloaded many issues from there but could not find required explaination.
Please, give me a link, if someone have. Or may be someone can explain - what is "objective" and "global objective", how is it bound with the conceptions of "activity", "organization".

The specifc SCORM version that SLK 1.0 supports is SCORM 2004, 2nd edition. The specs for that standard are here: http://www.adlnet.gov/scorm/history/2004/documents.cfm

All the concepts you refer to are defined in these specs, however be forewarned that these specs are meaty and require significant effort to master.
