Using SCORM packages as pre- or post-course materials to prepare students for the lecture is commonly used to engage and track learners' learning progress. The use of sequencing and navigation to combine the learning content and interaction in the SCORM packages enable learners to access and review the knowledge at their own pace. The elements of gamification can be introduced to design the SCORM to motivate learners by awarding them a grade upon completion.
