There are a few specifications on the periphery of SCORM that add value above and beyond what SCORM has to offer. Two of them, both from IMS, Sharable State Persistence (IMS SSP) and Question and Test Interoperability (IMS QTI) seem to be gaining some traction. Whether or not they will ever gain widespread acceptance as SCORM has is yet to be seen, but we’ve had enough clients ask about them to catch our attention.

We are kicking off our 2008 product releases with a new version of the SCORM Driver that includes support for SSP. Version 3.4 was officially released today, it includes support for SSP and assorted minor fixes and improvements. SCORM Driver customers with active maintenance agreements can upgrade to v3.4 and SSP at no charge.
