Jackrabbit XDS™

XDS™ (Cross-Domain SCORM) is a patent-pending technology that makes it possible for learning objects to physically reside outside the LMS, while providing SCORM delivery inside any SCORM-conformant LMS. This enables the following:

  • Secure Content: Content is only available via login to a Learning Management System. Publishers can effectively deploy courses, modules, or even individual media assets without having to worry about unauthorized distribution.
  • Content in Central Repository: With XDS™, content is kept in a central repository, while SCORM learner data is passed to one, or many Learning Management Systems (LMSs), in different locations. If you make content updates, you make those updates in one location, and with the XDS™ technology, those updates will be instantly available on any LMS referencing the XDS™ format content.
  • SCORM Learner Data: LMSs today are used such that SCORM content resides on the same server as their LMS. With XDS™ format content, SCORM information gets saved in the LMS, even while the content physically resides on a different location, server, and/or Web domain. This eliminates the need to maintain multiple copies of content on different servers.
  • Enables “Mass Customization”, Reuse: Because XDS™ format SCOs are portable within an LMS, instructors can add, move, and re-sequence content, customizing courses to individual needs of the school, department, even individual classes. Using XDS™ publishers can enable this mass customization, while ensuring that the source content (residing on a remote severs) is not edited.

What are the results?

The first leap forward in the evolution of eLearning was the separation of content from navigation engine. That ushered in the era of templates & rapid development. The next leap forward is the separation of content from the management system while persisting SCORM communication. This ushers in the era of "realtime" content updates (content as fresh as an online news site), and research-based improvements to usability, test items, and instructional design.

XDS™ is a technology that makes it possible for learning objects to physically reside outside the LMS, while providing SCORM delivery inside any SCORM-conformant LMS.
