xAPI: Why Should I Care and What Could It Do for Me?

Meridian

In the training world, we were introduced to SCORM from an initiative that arose in 1999, led by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) and Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL). The purpose of the initiative was to develop a standard for eLearning that would meet the needs of both federal and private sectors to replace AICC and correct previous problems. Fast forward 20 years, and we are seeing the beginnings of a sea of change being led by xAPI.

Here we will take a look at AICC, SCORM, and XAPI (Tin Can), define what each one is and see when each might be an ideal solution for your business. AICC . The AICC standard is one of the earliest eLearning standards. It was created in 1988 by the Aviation Industry Computer-Based Training Committee (AICC) to standardize the materials and technology used to train airline workers. AICC Pros . AICC Cons.

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

Origin Learning

From early adopters who used archaic systems to set up a lesson that could be shared on one computer with an instructor to guide employees, to modern workplace learning that’s focused on xAPI -enabled mobile learning; eLearning at the workplace has traveled a long way. Have you wondered how all eLearning programs follow a specific structure and adhere to standards despite being unique learning elements? AICC and SCORM – The Core Standards of eLearning. Why xAPI Matters?

eLearning Standards—What They Are and Why They Matter

Trivantis

It all started with the Aviation Industry Computer-Based Training Committee (AICC), which was formed in 1988. The aircraft industry has always had a high need for training and certification, and prior to 1988, this led to a variety of incompatible and closed system training programs that had unique hardware and software requirements. In 1993, the AICC created the CMI specification—still in use today—which specified the communications between a course and an LMS.

The ongoing work of learning standards

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. The ADL provided compliance testing, so that content and systems could be validated for interoperability. ADL decided to create a new standard, the Experience API (xAPI; originally known as Tin Can).

From API to xAPI, the words we use everyday can be complex and confusing. ADL (Advanced Distributed Learning): An initiative established by the US Department Of Defense in 1999, aiming to make the delivery of online training consistent across content formats, technologies, and organizations. A predecessor to SCORM, AICC was difficult to work with and many steps were required to get content in the format running in an LMS.

Ultimate eLearning terms you should know: Part 2 (M-Z)

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. Objectives: Course or learning objectives define the knowledge or skills learners are expected to gain from a training program. Training professionals are now often required to demonstrate the ROI of learning programs and software to leadership teams.
