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. 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. These are currently stand-alone products, but ADL predicts they will eventually be integrated right into LMS’s. LMS’s will all have to adopt the spec before it can be used in eLearning. 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 Experience API is just one technology — the first of a larger architecture we proposed to the Center for National Research Initiatives back in 2010. First, Ellen Meiselman is arguably the first actual adopter of the Experience API in the seminal work she’s been doing with the University of Michigan Health System.

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.

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.

By “traditional”, I mean developed-in-the-year-2000-why-is-our-industry-still-using-17-year-old-technology traditional. It completely misses the point of adopting the xAPI standard.

xAPI Shifting to 3rd Gear

MakingBetter

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. Participants got into the weeds of learning architecture, project management and scaling the technology to respond to growing organizational demands in near real-time. It marks the beginning of the end of early adoption for xAPI.

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. 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. The first technology in that architecture was the Experience API.

Encourage innovation, diversity and economic opportunity within (and outside of) the learning technology community. 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. Adopting the Experience API is supposed distribute power and opportunity — not create a new hegemony.

Virtual Worlds #lrnchat

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

Getting contextual

Clark Quinn

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). That we should be creating them by abstracting from successful practices, we should be conceptualizing them, or adopting them from other areas. The point is that you map the technology to the need, and infer the possibilities.

Why SCORM 2004 failed & what that means for Tin Can

eFront

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. Technology shift. Nothing is perfect though as ADL admits [5].

Standard Options Apply

MakingBetter

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.

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

The Role of xAPI in Creating Powerful Learning Experiences for the Modern Workforce

“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. Tin Can API’ was the code name for the API project, which got widely adopted by the community. However, ‘Experience API’ is ADL’s official name for this standard.

What is Tin Can?

eFront

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

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

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. The xAPI specification is better defined than the SCORM API and uses more modern technologies to achieve its goals. With cmi5, ADL are writing the packaging and structuring specification that xAPI failed to deliver.

Before Tin Can, SCORM was the leading standard for web-based electronic educational technology (e-learning). Tin Can API was developed by Rustici Software when they were contracted by ADL, the keepers of SCORM, to come up with a new approach to learning systems and methodology. This was the year 2010 and ADL was looking for research ideas for the development of the next generation of SCORM. It describes the ability to use technology to track individual learning data.

Let’s look at how these standards have evolved over the years: 1980: The aviation industry starts computer-based training (CBT) – As aviation technology in the 80s advanced, airline staff needed adequate training, to use the different aircrafts, and also needed to have up-to-date information for safety reasons. To achieve this, the industry used a new technology called CBT to train its employees. 2012: Tin Can API – ADL and Rustici Software release version.9

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. The term “quantified learner” has emerged to describe this ability to track individuated learning data using technology. Some organizations believe that adopting the xAPI standard will in itself deliver beautifully designed course content.
