Abstract
This paper describes the design and use of Burrokeet, an e-learning software platform which facilitates the creation of SCORM Content Packages. Burrokeet will accept input content documents in most of the common file formats; it provides the tools to sequence that content into a pedagogically sound ‘unit of learning’ and to generate the IMS Manifest file for the Content Package. Burrokeet also has a publishing engine which can publish Content Packages created within Burrokeet or SCORM-compliant Content Packages generated from external sources. The Publishing engine will generate the output in a unified format, regardless of the input file formats used. Several output formats are supported, including html for website publication, pdf for print and presentation formats for delivery during class time.
