The ongoing work of learning standards

Litmos

After initial efforts in 1993, and bursts of energy circa 2000 and again in 2004, we’re seeing a new resurgence of activity and interest. The Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative of the Department of Defense finally had enough. The ADL provided compliance testing, so that content and systems could be validated for interoperability. ADL decided to create a new standard, the Experience API (xAPI; originally known as Tin Can).

What’s the best SCORM compliant LMS to choose in 2020?

which was set up in 2000, to the most recent SCORM 2004 (4th edition) from 2009. If it’s not certified by ADL, which SCORM API elements are supported? ADL is the governing body for SCORM. For an LMS to be SCORM-certified, it needs to have passed ADL’s testing process.

Think xAPI is Next-Generation SCORM? Think Again

Talented Learning

Rewind briefly to a day in 2010, when the dew was still fresh and early morning sun filled the meeting room at Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL). Back in 2000, JavaScript was the only programming language used to create training content in web page format. Instead, the team at ADL actually paved the way for the Actively Narrating Technical Interface-Sharable Content Object Reference Model – otherwise known as the ANTI-SCORM. Fortunately, the ADL effort wasn’t a total loss.

SCORM Compliance and Tin Can Api

SCORM was originally developed way back in the 90s by Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL), an initiative of the U.S. ADL was given the task of developing standards so that learning content could be “accessible, interoperable, durable and reusable”, and it is these standards that will eventually become the SCORM specifications that we know and love today. Imagine owning lots of DVDs but not having a player capable of playing them.

Why You Don’t Need a SCORM Compliant Learning Management System

Continu

SCORM was first released in 2000, and one of the most common versions is from 2004. When ADL created SCORM trainers weren’t thinking about these things yet. Even ADL, the company that created SCORM, has moved onto a different model. If you’re looking for a new learning management system (LMS), there’s a good chance you’ve come across the term “SCORM.” You may have seen advertising for a SCORM-compliant LMS or different versions of SCORM, like 1.1, or SCORM 2004.

Rapid Content Authoring Tools: Market, Mayhem and Reality

eLearning 24-7

If a RCAT vendor tells you they have been in business for over 10 years, they are somewhat misleading, since WBT courses really didn’t start to hit the mark until 2000 and then you have limited choices on how to build. CourseLab – ADL SCORM certified, no less. As the evolution of e-learning continues, the rapid content authoring tools (RCAT) market follows suit. This is a growing market with new vendors showing up, but at the same time, others disappearing.
