A SCORM package is a collection of files which are packaged according to an agreed standard for learning objects. SCORM packages are zip files that can be integrated in any LMS (Learning Management System) that supports the standard (Moodle, Blackboard, …) and that can be used for presenting multimedia content and as assessment tools. Thus, you can integrate your Virtual Excursion in Moodle and other LMSs by downloading it as SCORM.

I do not like criticizing other people's work, but there are three main problems with your presentation: 1. The Higgs boson is not the solution of how all the elementary particles get masses, you can do that without the Higgs for all the particles except for the W and Z bosons. 2. The question "what did it make the difference?" is more related with "why the masses of the elementary particles are so different?", which is a question that the Higgs mechanism cannot answer. And 3. In page 17 you are forgetting A. Migdal and A. Polyakov, which also gave an explanation for that more or less at the same time as these other people, but it was forgotten because of the Iron Curtain.

This presentation is only a first approximation to Higgs particle. Sure there are much more details.
