Hi Talha, and welcome. Is your question related to the use of an LMS? The Articulate tools are SCORM- and AICC-compliant, which means that they can talk to any LMS that is also SCORM- or AICC-compliant. If that's not the information you were looking for, can you say a litlte more about what you mean by architecture?

let me elaborate my Question first
i am undergraduate student and hav to develop an authoring tool for my final year project. we are in the starting stages of developing that is doing research work. you might know there are some standards for e-learning developed by IEEE, ISO, W3.org they even have given a system architecture diagram for e-learning tools. i just want to know that is there any standard by any organization or community like IEEE etc for e-authoring


on page 22 there is a figure explaining components of e-learning tool. I want to know if there exists similar sort of standards for e-authoring tool

I shall be thankful if someone guides me on this

Hello Talha, the standard you're referring to describes and provides information about an bastract model, that is LTSA : Learning Technology System Architecture. The picture on page 22 describes abstract components, not an e-learning tool...

An e-learning or an e-authoring tool are pieces of SOFTWARE - just a component of the learning process described in different standards.

I would strongly  reccommend to review these concepts... there are many books around describing software architecures, other than standards, if you need to develop a software tool, just try to fully understand what an authoring process is, and what a software tool is supposed to do in order to output the expected results (media, video, sound, web pages, etc.)

hope it helps
