What is the plan for DISC, xAPI, and ADL?

MakingBetter

Towards the end of last year, our big announcement was the formation of the not-for-profit Consortium formed to handle the governance and address the evolution of xAPI with/for ADL. xAPI, being open-source and licensed as Apache 2.0, doesn’t require ADL’s permission for us to do this. We’ve worked out the details of what we’re going to take on with ADL so the connections between DISC and ADL can be very explicit, very concrete and very visible.

Open Source Authoring Tools for e-Learning

eFront News from the e-learning frontier 10/17/2010 Open Source Authoring Tools for e-Learning As an e-Learning consultant I always was fun of open source software. In this post I am not going to talk about open source learning management systems such as eFront [1] but rather dedicated open source "authoring tools". I highly encourage you to leave a commend if you know any other open source authoring tool.

Taking cmi5 adoption further by developing a Conformance Test Suite

Rustici Software

For the last 18 years, some of the most important work we’ve done at Rustici Software has been the standards-based efforts we’ve worked on with the Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative (ADL). In 2010, we were awarded a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) from ADL to modernize SCORM Communication, an effort that became known as Project Tin Can, and ultimately xAPI. Since cmi5 was first released in 2016, there’s been a missing piece that has slowed its adoption.

TinCan Demystified

eFront

The standard is developed by the company RUSTICI but ADL is still the steward of the specification, just like SCORM. Perceived simplicity is a core ingredient of the new offering and a major adoption point for LMS and authoring tools developers. This openness is very important and in our point of view, the biggest benefit that TinCan brings to the world. This sort of complexity led to very low SCORM 2004 adoption.

Mike Rustici – Crystal Balling with Learnnovators

Learnnovators

Mike’s company is leading the world towards adoption of the Tin Can API, the successor to SCORM. Learnnovators: In this age where most learning happens ‘informally’ (through on-the-job-learning and peer-learning), how well do you think the early adopters of Experience API support informal learning? Mike: Early adopters are broken into two categories, traditional e-learning vendors and new market entrants. The ADL vision is actually looking this far out in the future.

There are a myriad of reasons why 2015 was good for Megan and I, but the one reason that stands out is the incredible gains in xAPI’s adoption that happened this year. We know there’s been incredible growth in xAPI adoption. We know projects are already being planned for the beginning of 2016 at a scale that equals the whole of xAPI adoption in 2015. xAPI is so successful that it’s actually becoming a challenge for ADL to support it to the scale it now demands.

A Glance Back at xAPI; A Look Ahead at Data Ownership

The tl;dr : Like hardware, w hen it comes to data, if you can’t open it, you don’t own it. If you can’t open it, you don’t own it. None of us standards nerds are used to the market so quickly adopting what we create. This success comes with a sharp edge: it’s exactly the meteoric adoption of what the spec is today that will slow down getting to everything else on the above list.

Aaron, can you tell me a little bit about your background and how you became involved with ADL? In 2003, the eLearning startup I worked for shuttered its doors as our customers moved to adopt SCORM, and we had no idea how to do that. 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. Last heard ADL calls this new standard the Experience API? (on

The rise of mLearning has also driven adoption of the Tin Can xAPI eLearning content standard which can track far more learning activities than older standards like SCORM. Moodle (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment): Open source learning platform mostly implemented in education settings. One of the main benefits of open source platforms like Moodle is that they’re free and can be highly customized.

When we’re talking about xAPI, we must appreciate that there are already millions of dollars invested (in the value of people’s contributed thoughts, their time and actual capital) in development and adoption. I want to encourage it by keeping it as open as we can AND by making it possible for the best approaches, not just the best spin, to find adoption. I put adopter in quotes because, according to the spec, without the LRS, he’s not conformant.

I’m a recent convert, perhaps on the path to open source evangelism.) Because it’s open source, there are no licensing costs. Moodle and other open source products have huge communities behind them. Talented individuals who can program like hell and believe in the open source philosophy. But the beauty of open source is you can customize it. I think the time for open source is now.

Answer: There’s four different Open Source LRSs that I’m aware of: Learning Locker , ADL LRS , lxHive and TinMan.
