Top 11 Disruptive E-Learning Technologies For 2013


e-Learning is dynamically evolving, thanks to the incredible achievements in highly powerful and intelligent tools and technologies that are rapidly emerging. These disruptive technologies are re-shaping the learning and education landscape. WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY.

Mike Rustici – Crystal Balling with Learnnovators


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. 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? Early adopters trusted us that this was real.

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. 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?


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. ADL Sample LRS. If you are running local on your machine alone, the ADL Sample LRS is the easiest and fastest approach to doing so.

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.

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

Experience API

The latest DoDI advises all entities within the DoD to procure eLearning technology solutions that are compliant with the SCORM or Experience API (xAPI) specifications. This Instruction replaces the 2006 version of DoDI 1322.26, “Development, Management, and Delivery of Distributed Learning,” which mandated (as opposed to advised) the use of SCORM in all eLearning technology used by the DoD. The 2006 DoDI required any DL technology to be SCORM conformant.

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. These speakers were incredible people, many of whom are outside the xAPI Developer/Contributor/Adopter circles. It’s not just events, it’s not just fancy new adopters.

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? 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.

Why SCORM 2004 failed & what that means for Tin Can


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.


Getting contextual

For the current ADL webinar series on mobile, I gave a presentation on contextualizing mobile in the larger picture of L&D (a natural extension of my most recent books). The point is that you map the technology to the need, and infer the possibilities.

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


Funnily enough, Tin Can (xAPI) , which we’ll examine next, adopts a similar approach to AICC regarding the HACP and, as a result, can track data across domains, or indeed, almost anywhere. Pitched as a successor to SCORM, xAPI became widely adopted pretty quickly.


Tin Can API & the Future of E-Learning


“One small step for e-learning technology, One giant leap for the e-learning industry.” This standard is being developed by Rustici Software (with a world-wide active community participating and contributing) for Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) – the keepers of SCORM.

Standard Options Apply


In August, 2014 I participated in one of the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC) monthly meetings. 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.

What is xAPI?


The SCORM specification was introduced by ADL in 1999. Rustici chose the name project name “Tin Can” to describe the two-way conversations the technology would track as it made it easier for learning systems to communicate with each other.

This was largely because several of the organizers had recently attended one or another of the SRI/ADL meetings on the topic, but also because one of the organizers ( @KoreenOlbrish ) is majorly active in the business of virtual worlds for learning through her company Tandem Learning. The third question explored what lessons can be learned from social media to enhance appropriate adoption of VWs. Tags: design technology

What is Tin Can?


The Tin Can API is a brand new learning technology specification that opens up an entire world of experiences (online and offline). ADL (the keepers of SCORM) is the steward of this new specification aka “the next generation of SCORM.”. 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.

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.

Standards and success

Clark Quinn

While IMS & IEEE held meetings to get learning content standards nailed down, ADL just put their foot down with SCORM (and US Defense is a big foot), and it pretty much got everyone’s attention. There may be barriers for enterprise adoption, but as I frequently say: it’s not the technology, the barriers are between our ears (and maybe our pocketbooks :). Tags: mobile strategy technology
