Learning management system (LMS) applications are powerful tools for creating content to help students understand complex technical topics. The Structured Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) by the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Co-Laboratory has special importance for military training. Several important challenges need to be met in order to maximize the capabilities and impact of such tools however. The production of illustrative interactive 3D models is difficult and often blocked from long-term success by proprietary formats. Integrating hyperlinked text, imagery, video and 3D content together within a rich multimedia learning module is further difficult to perform and repeat.
This work will extend the benefits of ISO-approved Extensible 3D (X3D) Graphics standard to SCORM modules through a pilot project. In particular we will focus on the conversion of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) images and models from the S1000D specification into animated interactive X3D models that can be linked within a SCORM-based LMS. Partnered work will assess the merit, repeatability and deployability of such solutions that find the "sweet spot" afforded by utilizing these three important specifications in combination.
