Content producers should be encouraged only
to use internal navigation where it enhances the
delivery of that learning concept in an interactive
way. It should not be used simply to provide an index
or table of contents, which can be done just as well
by the LMS. Hyperlinking between learning objects
is not desirable.
LMS vendors whose product cannot cope with
multi-file objects or internal navigation should be
encouraged to develop support for importing such
content.Without this, they cannot really claim to
support IMS Content Packaging.
LMS vendors whose products do not cope well
with a larger number of smaller learning objects
should be encouraged to develop their products so
that a collection of such objects can be handled well
via their interface.
Vendors claiming to offer repositories or content
packaging tools which support IMS Content
Packaging should be able to demonstrate that their
products support the full breadth of the specifica-
tions. Otherwise, these systems constrain the ability
to engage properly in specifications-based
