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

Challenge to Learn

Do you want to buy a LMS or an authoring tool and are you wondering what the best option is for tracking the results of your learners? 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.

What is the AICC Standard and How is it Relevant to My eLearning Plan?

Docebo

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. Is AICC Still Applicable? In 2014, the AICC decided to dissolve due to the decline in membership numbers. AICC and learning management systems.

Day 2 @LSCON, Nice keynote and I finally understand TinCan, Experience API, Scorm, ADL, IACC and CMI-5…….

Challenge to Learn

CMI-5 and XAPI (Tin Can API), Bill McDonald , Kris Rockwell It took me a while to figure the meaning of TinCan and I understood the impact it can have on our learning community, but I never understood why we have two competing standards (Scorm and AICC), and now there is a new standard emerging CMI-5 based on TinCan. The AICC developed in the early 1990 the AICC standard. Later on the ADL was formed and they wanted a more extended standard, based on the AICC specs.

AICC and SCORM Compliance: The Benefits for Your e-Learning

Trivantis

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. SCORM versus AICC. One of the biggest differences between AICC and SCORM is the way that each communicates with your LMS.

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. xAPI, like SCORM before it, started from a DoD and ADL 2011 initiative. With xAPI, you can track virtually anything.

Real (e)Learning Heroes

Clark Quinn

The initial learning technology standards came out from the AICC. 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. Other initiatives include xAPI, sponsored by ADL to address gaps in SCORM. This standard enables tracking and analytics beyond the course.

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. AICC and SCORM each came with their own set of limitations. As eLearning gravitated towards online delivery and synchronous learning, SCORM became more popular and AICC lost favor with companies designing and deploying eLearning solutions. SCORM was not enough to track user/learner progress. xAPI ensures that informal learning is tracked.

It was originally a research project that was awarded to Rustici Software by ADL. To summarize, xAPI enables learning administrators to track offline learning or learning that the learner participates in outside the core LMS/learning platform like mobile apps or games. In this infographic, we have showcased the eLearning standards in vogue like AICC and SCORM and how xAPI is transforming the way eLearning is being designed and deployed at the modern workplace.

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.

SCORM vs. LTI: what’s the difference?

Rustici Software

Recently, we updated our products Content Controller and Rustici Dispatch to allow them to export content as LTI, which is a valuable feature for those in the academic space (years ago, we added this feature to SCORM Cloud Dispatch , and already Rustici Dispatch and Content Controller allowed you to import SCORM, xAPI, cmi5 or AICC content and export it as SCORM and AICC to other platforms). SCORM is focused on launching training content and tracking interactions.

Bottom-Line Performance

There’s no way to track learner activity in games, so I can’t use it. If an activity is happening outside of the LMS, learner activity could not be tracked. It’s a new eLearning standard that allows all manner of learning experiences, from the grandiose to the granular, to be tracked and accounted for. We had a great time at DevLearn 2012 in Las Vegas.

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

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.

Plume - e-learning & learning management systems

Since the beginning of learning management systems (LMS), SCORM has been recognised as the industry-standard model for progress tracking in online courses. Experience API, or Tin-can as it was originally known, is a protocol for tracking learning-related activity. It can also integrate with other platforms recording and tracking data from Sales CRMs, offline assessments and CMS, giving you insights into training efficacy and employee performance. Offline activity tracking.

What is Cmi5? A new set of rules for xAPI

LearnUpon

Ben Clark of Rustici Software has described how cmi5 augments xAPI as follows: “xAPI is wide open, there’s so much this standard can do that people don’t know what to expect out of it and they don’t know how to track certain things consistently. And even though the new standard does have more rules and provides more structure, instructional designers still have a wide open field to track whatever they want to.”. SCORM has long been the most common standard for eLearning content.

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. The ADL provided compliance testing, so that content and systems could be validated for interoperability. From web activity streams, people started thinking about tracking other forms of activity.

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”.

What is SCORM?

Growth Engineering

The Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative (ADL) answered the call, and developed the Sharable Content Object Reference Model, more conveniently known as SCORM. Though it faced some competition from AICC , this eLearning specification would become the dominant one, used almost universally across the online learning landscape! The ADL has emerged once more to steward in the new age of eLearning specification.

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.

Test SCORM Courses with an LMS

Tony Karrer

We are developing a SCORM or AICC compliant course either custom or using an authoring tool. Here are some ideas - SCORM Test Suite One of the best things about SCORM (ADL's Sharable Content Reference Model) is that it is pretty easy to test and diagnose problems. My first piece of advice for anyone developing a course is to make sure it runs with the ADL's test suite because that gives you cover in case there are issues.

They came up with the Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative (ADL) and created the SCORM. Despite facing robust competition from AICC ( Aviation Industry Computer-Based Training Committee), SCORM continues to dominate the online learning landscape. It comes with advanced features like tracking of mobile learning, learning that takes place outside the LMS, improves the mobility of learning records so that students are able to take data when they switch jobs or schools etc.

Webinar Q&A: Empowering Continuous Learning with the Experience API (xAPI)

Experience API

You can think of an LRS as “the part of the LMS that implements xAPI and that tracks learning activity”. Answer: There’s four different Open Source LRSs that I’m aware of: Learning Locker , ADL LRS , lxHive and TinMan. For the Bookmarket, how is the person tracked. Bookmarklets are just one way of tracking self-reported informal learning. Does all content have to be marked as tracked by the user? Is there no automatic tracking? Wellness tracking.
