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.

One year ago, we kicked off a project with ADL to develop tools and resources to help accelerate the adoption of cmi5 , and ultimately xAPI, within both the DoD and across the industry as a whole. As with any standard or specification, the value comes with relevance and adoption.

Centralizing content and building xAPI Profiles at iFest

Rustici Software

We have been working with government entities since 2005, so it’s no surprise that we were at NTSA’s ADL iFest 2019 conference. While the xAPI standard and other emerging ADL initiatives are actively innovating exciting new standards, the reality is that training managers need tools that can be used to solve problems in the short term. That way, when a content publisher uploads a course in their central system, it’s immediately made available to every other connected platform.

Tin Can API, the evolution of SCORM

Paradiso

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. It is a set of standards and specifications for developing web-based educational technology, standards developed by the ADL which had always to adhere strictly to SCROM’s requirements, these being “accessible, reusable, inoperable, and durable content and systems”.

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

LearnUpon

While many eLearning vendors still support AICC, the standard is usually a legacy of older platforms and businesses. 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. It’s an exciting time for the industry, especially with ADL now managing cmi5.

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. At the recent VW talks hosted by SRI, one of the topics was the inability to transfer a character between platforms. The US is embarrassingly behind, despite the leading platforms (iPhone, Pre, etc).
