Remove ADL Remove AICC Remove Courseware Remove Track

The ongoing work of learning standards

Litmos

Looking for systematicity, the aviation industry created a subcommittee to develop standards for Computer Based Training: the Aviation Industry CBT Committee (AICC). The Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative of the Department of Defense finally had enough. They wanted a standard, took a plausible set of standards from the work, and called it the Standard Courseware Object Reference Model (SCORM). The goal is to track a richer suite of information about behaviors.

xAPI is the standard used to track and capture activity from the systems users are accessing. cmi5 originated from the AICC and was transferred to ADL in 2014. ADL currently acts as the steward for supporting and continuous development of cmi5.

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. Responsive design is essential for software and courseware intended for use on mobile devices. SCORM (Shareable Content Object Reference Model): A set of standards developed by Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) and applied when developing LMS content.

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

Origin Learning

AICC and SCORM – The Core Standards of eLearning. AICC stands for Aviation Industry CBT (Computer-Based Training) Committee. Designed specifically to cater to eLearning courseware designed for use in the aviation industry, the standards were adopted by course-providers to create eLearning content for all industries. AICC and SCORM each came with their own set of limitations. SCORM was not enough to track user/learner progress. Tracking Learner Progress.

SCORM vs Tin Can API: The difference between compact discs and iTunes

ProProfs

At some point in the past, eLearning standards were built for facilitating interoperability between content and LMS; now with SCORM and especially Tin Can API, it’s about tracking learning experiences as much as it is about interoperability. With SCORM, importing content from one LMS to another and tracking course data became a seamless and hassle-free process. With SCORM, you could not track this as learning data, which was part of your course.

Q&A - eLearning Standards Especially SCORM

Tony Karrer

You want to implement your courseware to the SCORM standard if you plan to have it launched and/or tracked under an LMS. One case is building a one-off course that needs simple tracking/reporting and will never run under an LMS. If you won't ever need to run it under an LMS, then SCORM is overhead you don't need (see Tracking Without an LMS ). In these cases, I'm not tracking and likely it's not under the LMS.

Important Features of an Ideal Rapid Authoring Tool

CommLab India

The eLearning Guild had come up with a report 1 that lists the most desired features in rapid e-learning courseware authoring software. Tracking assessments. The eLearning Guild stated that the tools’ users wanted features such as the ability to: Use user-defined variables that can be tracked. Use variables for personalization and data tracking. Progress Tracking Features. Accessibility (ADL, Section 508, etc.)
