Abstract—Web-based training is popular around the world,
where a large number of people can study at the same time
through the Internet anytime and anywhere. The major issue of
current e-learning is courseware distribution between different
platforms. SCORM (sharable content object reference model) is
one of the solutions for courseware sharing. However, to make
SCORM-conformable courseware, some knowledge about
(Sharable Web Fragment)-based e-learning system, where
courseware is created with sharable Web fragments such as
Web pages, images and other resources, and the courseware can
be distributed to another platform by export and import
facilities. The exported meta-information is
architecture-independent and provides a model of courseware
distribution. This paper presents how to promote the
distribution and sharing of Web-based e-learning courseware,
where courseware can be easily retrieved by weighted
Index Terms—Courseware, distribution, learning, sharing, web.
