Tin Can API is SCORM’s smart and attractive younger sibling. Unlike SCORM, Tin Can API is also easy to implement and major players like Articulate , Lectora , and Blackboard have already adopted Tin Can.

Nine years ago on Wednesday, I received a phone call that changed my life. I was laid off two months after my eLearning startup folded in 2003, mostly because our clients went to SCORM LMSs and we couldn’t figure out how to adopt. On the Fourth of July, 2003, I got a call asking if I’d be interested in working on SCORM for the US Department of Defense. learned a lot.

Best of the Best – NextGen LMSs

eLearning 24-7

SCORM, Tin Can, HTML5 support.  This system has hit full steam so much, that they are in my Top 10 LMS (mid-rankings)  I’d go with My Big Campus over Blackboard any day of the week in the K-12 space. 2. One of the latest hip words to use in the industry is “next gen”   Next gen can mean a lot of things to a lot of different people.  Heck, some folks think next gen can align with open source platforms such as Moodle. I’m not seeing that in all honesty.  Next generation systems are just like any other LMS whereas they can slip and fall. They really care. 

Five LMS Lists

eLearning 24-7

There are three types of  systems that slide under “learning platforms” The most common one supports PowerPoint, and videos and other content – and can track it, but they DO NOT support any version of SCORM, nor do they support AICC, PENS, Tin Can and so on. Get one with at least one compliance standard.  If you can find one that supports SCORM and PENS, to me you hit a home run. . 5.  Blackboard Learn - Their mobile while better than before, still has a way to go. . 3. Everyone loves a good list.  This is especially true when it comes to e-learning.

K-12 and LMSs are Broken, Who’s to Blame?

eLearning 24-7

Blackboard, Brightspace (formally D2L) and Instructure.  Blackboard is the oldest player in the education space and the most dominant (revenue/sales wise). SCORM including 1.2/2004,  AICC, Common Cartridge. Back in the 90’s I taught high school and loved it.  To this day, I still have very close friends who are teachers (middle school and high school).  As someone who stays current with K-12 and HE (as related to e-learning), I am equally aware of the challenges, successes and failures when it comes to online learning.  Who’s to Blame?

One of the items I am still trying to find out, is whether or not Mindflash accepts SCORM, since in the past it did not.   It should also be noted that at this time, you cannot upload any 3rd party course from a course provider into the Mindflash platform.

I received a good question from a reader: Our school district uses Blackboard. Blackboard has done well for us although I am not pleased with their support of the SCORM standards. would like to be able to export SCORM test results by user/by question but all Blackboard seems to support is general pass/fail records. have spent many hours researching this issue related to SCORM compliance and more specifically how to get the test results exported out of my LMS for more in depth analysis in Excel or perhaps some type of statistics package. That's good.

The offline players that are tested at the moment: Meridian Meridian blackboard backpack Harbinger What we look at is: their possibility to be integrated in different LMS's, need to download contents, the possibility to deliver content on a cd-rom/USB, SCORM compliance, quick support system, size of the data that is synchronised, user friendliness and of course the price. A disadvantage in using courses that are centralized in a LMS is the fact that learners who are not connected to the web constantly have a setback. At this moment the Harbinger one is definitely in the lead

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use. You can never keep up with it all, but access to many experts who are also finding and sharing the lastest tech tools make it much less daunting.

If Blackboard did that, there would be villagers marching in the streets with torches in hand. The Blackboard SCORM import/export stuff might not be perfect, but at least they try to let people move content out. So, open source Moodle does not export to SCORM, the most prevalent e-learning standard? Its 18 months old, so I did a quick search of the Moodle forums to see what the status of the SCORM export feature is today. Now I’m realizing that it is NOT scorm compliant – moodle can import courses but not export them in scorm. and CSS 3
