The AICC is dissolved, but having an LMS that supports AICC is still crucial. In 1988, the Aviation Industry Computer-based Training Committee (AICC) was formed to make sure training material could be developed, delivered and evaluated across the increasing number of computer-based training platforms.

The ongoing work of learning standards

At the dawn of the video recording age, a battle raged about the best standard to use: VHS or Betamax. In it, Sony came out with a better standard, but kept it to themselves. Meanwhile, JVC’s VHS standard wasn’t quite as good, but they openly licensed it. As Stephen Johnson tells us, in his book Where Good Ideas Come From , the openness of standards fosters innovation. .

Track and trace Learners results. What do SCORM compliance, AICC, XAPI and CMI5 mean?

Challenge to Learn

Or are you just confused by all the abbreviations like: SCORM, AICC, XAPI, and CMI5? SCORM is a standard in e-Learning that makes it possible to track and trace the results of your learners in a Learning Management system (LMS). A course is SCORM compliant when it meets the requirements of the standard set by the ADL. There is a new standard in development that will be the next generation of SCORM. And yes there is yet another standard in the e-learning world.

The Benefits of Making Your e-Learning AICC and SCORM Compliant . To solve this problem, in 1999 the government tasked a small research laboratory, ADL, to “develop common specifications and standards for e-learning.” The lab combined the work of existing standards organizations like the AICC , IMS and the IEEE LTSC into a cohesive reference model. Today, SCORM is the de facto standard for e-Learning interoperability. SCORM versus AICC.

eLearning Standards—What They Are and Why They Matter

To accomplish this, the industry has come up with several eLearning standards that allow courses created by any vendor to “talk” with an LMS created by any other vendor. In this article we’re going to look at the history of those standards, and where we are today. It all started with the Aviation Industry Computer-Based Training Committee (AICC), which was formed in 1988. The first standard for training media was published in 1989, and was based on a PC platform.

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. It took a few years and by the mid-2000s, SCORM had become the de facto standard for all eLearning content.

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. SCORM is a fairly easy standard to deal with especially since most people are fine with a single SCO that does only single score/completion reporting. What about other Standards? AICC goes after the same thing as what I've described above for SCORM (tracking under an LMS).

Make no mistake, I still think there is a role to be filled here but it is a role that focuses on pedagogy, design, design, design, and to a small degree any unique, technical requirements that are not being met by existing and emerging market standards.

I’m thinking in particular of those who work to advance our standards. 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.

When you take a step back, it’s a little funny that so many people are talking about standards in learning technology right now. Many, many people are fed up with existing standards being narrowly centered around an old concept of what a course is, where it’s taken, and what it does. The previous standards have done their time and evolution is imminent. This is why the collaboration announced recently between ADL and AICC on Tin Can is such a huge deal.

Since the beginning of learning management systems (LMS), SCORM has been recognised as the industry-standard model for progress tracking in online courses. However, in recent years, SCORM has been replaced by another more future-proof, feature-heavy standard. According to SCORM , “the Shareable Content Object Reference Model [SCORM], is a set of technical standards for eLearning software products.”
