1. Can the SCORM Driver work without a LMS for a test? Or does the SCORM Driver need a LMS in order to run?
2. Can any authoring/open source software such as eXe work with the SCORM Driver?
1) Yes, the SCORM Driver can be tested without an LMS by setting the standard property in the configuration file to "NONE". Alternatively, you can test your content with the free version of our SCORM Cloud application (http://cloud.scorm.com) to test your content.
2) There would need to be some integration work, but technically the SCORM Driver could probably be used with most authoring tools. An appropriate licensing arrangement would also need to be worked out.
