With advanced technologies, computer devices have become smaller in size but still with powerful computing ability. As a result, there are growing amount of people start to take distance education courses not only by using their PCs but also using mobile devices such as Pocket PCs. Because Pocket PCs are easy to carry, these devices are considered as a proper platform for distance education. In this paper, we focus on the issues of transferring the current PC based Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) to Pocket PC based. We will also introduce the prototype version of Pocket SCORM Run-Time Environment (RTE) which has been developed in our lab. Proposed Pocket SCORM Architecture is able to operate, even when the mobile device is physically disconnected from the network, without losing any students' learning record. Collected records will then be sent back to Learning Management System (IMS), runs at the sever side, after the device is back on on-line.
