4.3.5 Sharable Content Objects (SCO).

SCOs are self-contained chunks of instructional material in digital files that can be individually retrieved from a content repository, manipulated, and reused for a different purpose. Using SCOs as building blocks, information can be assembled to develop classroom instruction, Interactive Courseware (ICW), and Web-Based Training (WBT) courses that include images, shapes, text, or groups of images, shapes, and text structured into instructional sequences, events, activities, lessons, modules, phases, or entire courses. When SCOs are created, metadata tags are attached. These tags provide the means to search in a repository for appropriate instructional material and achieve cost savings through reuse of existing SCOs. For additional information about metadata tagging and the creation of SCOs refer to MIL-HDBK-29612-5.
