xAPI Camp – DevLearn 2015 is ONE DAY AWAY

MakingBetter

Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) continues to be a huge supporter of the community as the current stewards of the spec itself. The post xAPI Camp – DevLearn 2015 is ONE DAY AWAY appeared first on MakingBetter. We aren’t freaking out — we are FREAKING EXCITED!!! The first xAPI Camp at DevLearn, the first of four events we’re putting on hosted by The eLearning Guild , is nigh upon us.

Top 10 LMS Forecasts for 2015

eLearning 24-7

” Okay, with that out of the way, let’s get right down to the forecasts for 2015. One of the most interesting items which presents to me an unknown variable is CMI-5, a compliance standard (formally with AICC) now headed up by ADL. I agree it will be the next generation of a compliance standard, but I do not see it having major impact in 2015. At least not for 2015. #1 In 2015, I do expect to see an increase in the number of vendors implementing xAPI.

xAPI Shifting to 3rd Gear

We had people well outside of the ADL bubble talking about real world things things they were using xAPI to accomplish. You might be surprised to find out we’re in 2nd gear. We shifted out of 1st gear at DevLearn last year.

Two Years of xAPI

With Gratitude…

MakingBetter

2015 gave MakingBetter an amazing journey that was full of surprises. In January 2015, we planned for one and as the year closed we had four with five more scheduled in 2016. We lived well in 2015. Megan and I find ourselves grateful, as the year comes to a close.

Details Announced for xAPI Camp

MakingBetter

I’m very pleased we’re collaborating as an industry, with ADL’s support, to go beyond the technical “how-to” and get into “solutions.” Our speakers will facilitate the groups with support from ADL and other xAPI expertise.

Track and trace Learners results. What do SCORM compliance, AICC, XAPI and CMI5 mean?

Challenge to Learn

A course is SCORM compliant when it meets the requirements of the standard set by the ADL. It will be in our product somewhere in 2015. Do you want to buy a LMS or an authoring tool and are you wondering what the best option is for tracking the results of your learners?

xAPI Communities of Practice

Last year, ADL began organizing Communities of Practice around the design considerations and implementation of xAPI in different contexts. Yesterday, Ben Betts announced his leadership of a Badges Community of Practice , and I was both surprised and elated to see all the different groups coordinating with ADL.

When I was working with ADL, it was easy to talk about the potential for revolutionary performance improvement and deeper learning with the advent of xAPI. We’ll be at ATD TechKnowledge 2015 where Megan is on the planning committee.

xAPI can be more powerful that GA, but it requires more coding and work Interesting fact: He's wearing a wearable LRS: using ADL's LRS and beacon software. These are my live blogged notes from the opening session at this year's DevLearn, hosted by the eLearning Guild and happening in Las Vegas. Forgive any typos and incoherencies.

What is SCORM?

Origin Learning

SCORM refers to Sharable Content Object Reference Model, a technical standard for writing e-learning content. It gives guidelines to programmers on how to write codes for e-learning products so that it can play well with other software.

xAPI, LRS – The Interview

eLearning 24-7

Aaron, can you tell me a little bit about your background and how you became involved with ADL? Two months after my layoff, a company called CTC recruited me to work for ADL. I worked with ADL from 2003-2006 and participated in the Technical Working Group afterwards.

eLearning Standards—What They Are and Why They Matter

Trivantis

The AICC was dissolved in 2014, and all of its efforts have been transferred to the Department of Defense’s (DOD) Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) group. In 1997, the DOD established the ADL Initiative to standardize and modernize training.

Why the Experience API (xAPI) Is Crucial to Your eLearning Success

Trivantis

The ADL —or Advanced Distributed Learning—recognized the need for a set of standards to ensure that programmers write code that can play well with other eLearning software.

Tin Can API, the evolution of SCORM

Originally developed by Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL), an initiative of the Unite States Department of Defense, SCORM was designed to standardize and modernize their training courses.

Three Reasons Why cmi5 Is Better Than SCORM by Art Werkenthin

cmi5, the new specification from ADL, is solving many of the persistent problems with SCORM that learners, as well as. content developers, have had to contend with. Here’s an update on how Sandstone, the current beta of cmi5, is addressing. the issues of pop-up windows, distributed content, and data storage.

Tin Can vs. SCORM: What’s It All About?

KZO Innovations

Both SCORM and the Tin Can API were developed by the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL), a research group sponsored by the DoD, with help from Rustici Software. There’s been buzz about the “Tin Can API” and “next generation SCORM” for some time now – but do you actually know what these terms mean and the key differences between the two? Here, we’ll define and differentiate Tin Can and SCORM to make e-Learning a whole lot clearer for you! What is SCORM?

Webinar Q&A: Empowering Continuous Learning with the Experience API (xAPI)

Experience API

On June 2nd, 2015, we were part of a joint webinar presented by Bersin and CUES. Answer: There’s four different Open Source LRSs that I’m aware of: Learning Locker , ADL LRS , lxHive and TinMan. Answer: The original version of Experience API was developed by Rustici Software as part of a research project commissioned by ADL. Rustici Software, ADL and other members of the community continue to work together on the same single specification document. ADL LRS.

xAPI Community

Torrance Learning

ADL created a community with their xAPI cohorts and we’re aiming to do the same with our Spring 2016 xAPI Learning Cohort. We got our feet wet with a mini xAPI Learning Cohort in 2015, and now we’re ready to take the plunge by opening up this learning experience to everyone.

Why DoDI 1322.26 is important for the Experience API (xAPI)

Experience API

We are excited because this is the culmination of a lot of work for many people at both ADL and Rustici Software. In 2015, we at Rustici were awarded a BAA from ADL to help them revise the 2006 DoDI 1322.26. Lucky for you, ADL recently launched a list of Conformant LRSs as part of their xAPI Adopter Registry. Last week, the Department of Defense (DoD) signed the updated DoDI 1322.26 Distributed Learning (DL).

Day 5: xAPI and more – what next for SCORM?

LearnUpon

in April 2015. Pitched as the “true next generation of SCORM”, ADL have taken over the cmi5 specification (which suggests it will evolve!). With cmi5, ADL are writing the packaging and structuring specification that xAPI failed to deliver.

#ASTDTK14 Review

eLearning 24-7

I remember hearing a while back that allegedly some folks at ADL were not happy that the term Tin Can was used and they (ADL) were exploring having IEEE as the umbrella term. Now in Vegas, apparently there was this IEEE group which may or may not be associated with ADL (One of the gentleman who was involved in ADL, split to go with IEEE), discussing if IEEE should be the standard. HTML5 is coming in 2015.
