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? A course is SCORM compliant when it meets the requirements of the standard set by the ADL. SCORM and XAPI / Tincan. We now have XAPI , formerly known as (project) TinCan. SCORM and XAPI compared. XAPI allows tracking and tracing from anywhere. So you should choose an authoring tool or a LMS that supports XAPI. XAPI will still track and trace the results.

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.

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.

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.

who serves as the Director of the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative, aptly put it ‘xAPI helps us put the puzzle together’. But What is xAPI Really? To truly understand Experience API or xAPI, we need to first talk of Shareable Content Object Reference Model(SCORM) – the popular protocol that allows learning systems to speak with each other. So, in 2013, the developers of SCORM released xAPI (also known as Tin Can). How Does xAPI Work?

What is xAPI? Unlike SCORM, xAPI isn’t limited to learning management systems. Differences between SCORM and xAPI. This means that the results from a user can be lifted and migrated, but platforms are unable to talk to one another, unlike with xAPI which allows data to be collected and compared across all xAPI integrated technology. xAPI far out-performs SCORM and is more likely to be future proof as you expand on your training and build your platform.

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

Experience API

Questions: What is the common identifier that allows the xAPI to connect the data provided by the ‘activity provider’ to a specific user in the LRS? Answer: xAPI allows for learners to be identified by email address, Open ID or an account on some system, such as an LMS. How do you best see xAPI interfacing with an LMS? Which LMS platforms out there today best interface with xAPI? That’s one of the big advantages of xAPI, *anything* can make a statement.

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. ADL decided to create a new standard, the Experience API (xAPI; originally known as Tin Can).

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 major aircraft manufacturers of the time, Boeing, Airbus, and McDonnell Douglas, got together and formed the AICC to come up with a standard way for courses to communicate results to an LMS. In 1993, the AICC created the CMI specification—still in use today—which specified the communications between a course and an LMS.

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.

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. SCORM (Shareable Content Object Reference Model): A set of standards developed by Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) and applied when developing LMS content. Once a specification has been recognized by an official body, it becomes a standard, like AICC , SCORM or Tin Can xAPI.

SCORM vs. LTI: what’s the difference?

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. 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. Governance: LTI is created and maintained by IMS; SCORM by ADL.

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.

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.

The US Department Of Defense (DoD) and Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) decided to combine their collective experience on the subject, under an initiative issued by President Bill Clinton no less. AICC (Aviation Industry Computer-Based-Training Committee) deserves a mention too. AICC was, indeed, the first official eLearning content standard. However, AICC’s interoperability and ease of use (when imported to an LMS, for example), was very difficult to work with.
