An authoring tool is a software used to package different media files (video, PDF, PowerPoint, audio, etc.) of course content together in a SCORM package, which is then imported into a SCORM compliant platform, becoming viewable as a SCORM course
Authoring tools also give options for creating interactive and engaging course content. In addition, using an authoring tool lets you stay ahead of changing trends in the eLearning landscape. For example, creating mobile-friendly microlearning content if you are training employees who lack direct access to a desktop computer.

Just like any technology, SCORM has evolved through the years. There are currently four different implementable versions of SCORM. SCORM 2004 has several different editions, and the latest version/next generation of SCORM is the Experience API (xAPI). Furthermore, SCORM isn’t the only e-learning standard out there.
