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

LearnUpon

eLearning past: AICC. On day one of our series, we learned that AICC (Aviation Industry Computer-Based-Training Committee) can be considered the first eLearning standard, used to track how learners progress through course content. While many eLearning vendors still support AICC, the standard is usually a legacy of older platforms and businesses. Organizations that implement AICC have typically been around for a while and began using it when it was still common.

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). And then the IMS (an initiative of Educause before being spun out as an independent effort) started creating standards, as did the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), the major body in the US responsible for computing standards. So, does xAPI replace SCORM? .

Real (e)Learning Heroes

The initial learning technology standards came out from the AICC. Several other initiatives include IEEE (which is pretty much the US based effort on electric and electronic technology standards to the international stage), and the IMS efforts from academia. The Department of Defense’s ADL initiative decided upon a version, to move things forward, and thus was born SCORM. And if not, there’s always the ADL to wield the ‘800 lb gorilla’ argument.

SCORM vs. LTI: what’s the difference?

Rustici Software

If you’ve been familiar with Rustici Software for a long time, you’ll know we’ve helped people for a long time with SCORM and xAPI. It stands for Learning Tools Interoperability and it is a standard created by the IMS Global Learning Consortium. SCORM stands for Shareable Content Object Reference Model and it was developed, and is now managed, by Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative (ADL) to support the Department of Defense.

The Ultimate Glossary of eLearning Terms

From Agile to xAPI and everything in between, there are a lot of eLearning terms to get your head around. ADL (Advanced Distributed Learning). Notable contributions include SCORM and xAPI. The first official eLearning content standard, AICC was developed by the Aviation Industry CBT Committee in 1993 as a CD-ROM based standard. This is a “profile” for using the xAPI specification with learning management systems. xAPI (Tin Can).
