Using SCOs

Advantage:
  Get to concentrate on instructional design instead of content development
  Saves time and money by cutting down on content development


Disadvantage:
  Content in repository might be out of date
  Need more descriptive metadata 
      Type- fact, concept, procedure, rules, principles, etc.


Other:
  Need more descriptive metadata
      Online form
      Help function
      Generates file
      Validates
      Shows errors and references


Creating SCOs
  Get team together FIRST – Instructional designer, TPOCS, SMES, project manager, programmers,
graphic artists etc.
  Decompose content to form SCOs and make reusable
  SCO titles
      Relevant to SCO
      Contain Learning objective
  Use templates to create SCOs
  Create relevant file names
      7-10 characters
      no numbers
      limit extension to 3 characters (htm. Rather than html)
  Create reusable SCOs for repositories along with transition SCOs that are not reusable
      Transition SCOs can contain raw media graphics that can be put in the repository
