Standard Options Apply

MakingBetter

I’m going to lay out options for how we can approach standardization and the reasoning behind them. In August, 2014 I participated in one of the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC) monthly meetings. This particular one was special, as we were formally reviewing the Project Authorization Request (PAR) for the Experience API to become a formal standards project. We can take this open specification and transform it into an international standard that will catalyze data interoperability across systems. Community Experience API / "Tin Can" Standard

Yet here we are wondering where the course standard industry is heading or at least presumed to be heading. Will xAPI be the one standard that is “the” standard? “They are not Compliance Standards.” Bad is bad. SCORM.

HTML5: Standardize on MP4 (mostly)

ICS Learning

Now for the next big thing…a standard for support true-streaming video via HTTP! There’s nothing standardized yet but ‘HTTP Live Streaming’ (“HLS”), developed by Apple, seems to have the lead…though there are several potential streaming protocol options integrated with a variety of media servers and end-clients. So until a ‘standard’ is determined, and that standard integrated into the various browsers and operating systems…well, there’s still a wait involved with adaptive streaming (and DRM). Oh how things have changed. So the overall outcome? Huzzah! (?).

User Assistance: Standard Gauge

In 21st Century Australia, there isn't a standard national rail gauge. In some states, narrow gauge is used, in others broad gauge, and ironically in just one state, standard gauge.
