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. At Rustici, our software is primarily responsible for helping eLearning organizations achieve “interoperability.”

An insider view of xAPI adoption figures from Rustici

Just after our recent post about (s)low xAPI adoption in the L&D community, Rustici Software have published some behind-the-scenes figures on xAPI use in their own eLearning content delivery and testing service, SCORM Cloud. But if our recent article seemed a bit gloomy about xAPI adoption, it’s only fair to hear from xAPI’s creators – Rustici Software – on the matter. Tags: Elearning.

Mike’s company is leading the world towards adoption of the Tin Can API, the successor to SCORM. Mike: Tin Can is acting as a market catalyst to drive innovation in the tools we have available for learning through technology. That doesn’t fundamentally change the way we learn, but it does provide us many new tools to use in the learning process. Mike: Early adopters are broken into two categories, traditional e-learning vendors and new market entrants.

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. Using the tools is little more difficult than using a drawing package.

Experience (Tin Can) API: What to Expect from Your LMS Provider

Bottom-Line Performance

ADL, or Advanced Distributive Learning , is the government agency behind the spec. eLearning has been signed, sealed and delivered via SCORM for years. Learning designers have been forced to design their eLearning to work within the tight constraints of SCORM for too long. One example given by ADL is a “bookmarklet” that can be installed on a web browser and be used to track informal activities such as web pages visited. Tin Can. Experience. TIN CAN! Experience!

Answers: How Do I Get Started With xAPI?

MakingBetter

That’s pretty darn impressive considering the impact on other programs and agencies in US Government alone, and that it’s seen so much adoption. The information the US Department of Defense (via ADL) has available on the Experience API , and the larger Training & Learning Architecture of which xAPI is a part, broadly paints the picture of the research and development that is being performed now and into the foreseeable future, much of which will find its way to standardization.

Transitioning from SCORM to xAPI

On October 5 th , 2017, the Department of Defense announced that its eLearning curricula would adhere to xAPI standards rather than the more traditional SCORM standards of the eLearning industry. If a large government body that used to require the use of SCORM standards in their eLearning is willing to take the plunge, the rest of us might take a moment to consider doing so ourselves. Some SCORM authoring tools promise to do just that.

What is SCORM & Decoding Its Importance For eLearning

ProProfs

Imagine a situation where you are asked to create an elearning program or search for a suitable learning management system (LMS) tool for achieving your training requirements. There are many like you who aren’t aware of SCORM and what it can do for elearning. It is a set of technical standards that were mainly developed for supporting elearning tools. In 1999, the United States Department of Defense thought of standardizing the elearning production.

Sign #2: There is no certification process for tools and packages for the latest SCORM 2004 4 th edition. Currently, someone can be a 4 th edition adopter but * not* certified. [3]. Sign #3: ADL itself heavily supports Tin Can as the successor of SCORM.[4]. Now, with the introduction of Tin Can API it seems certain that its adoption rate will decline even further. Low adoption. The end result was low adoption from vendors and instructional designers.

ADL (the keepers of SCORM) is the steward of this new specification aka “the next generation of SCORM.”. Up until now, SCORM has been the most widely used elearning standard but it falls short when it comes to capturing the entire picture of elearning. Providers have come to realize that learning experiences happen everywhere (not just in the LMS) and Tin Can adopters want to give their users the ability to easily track these experiences.

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.
