Why the Experience API (xAPI) Is Crucial to Your eLearning Success

Trivantis

The Experience API (xAPI) is an updated standard for tracking eLearning; it shows a more complete picture of your learners’ activity than SCORM does. xAPI was created by Rustici Software to replace SCORM (an earlier set of technical standards for eLearning software products). The ADL —or Advanced Distributed Learning—recognized the need for a set of standards to ensure that programmers write code that can play well with other eLearning software.

There is the story about a woman who signed up for an online dating service and got paired with a software developer. SCORM had the limitation that any learning you wanted recorded had to be eLearning ( formal learning ), online, launched in a browser from a LMS, and could only record very specific things. In addition, the eLearning itself was designed for the computer screen. That could lead to some SCORM tracking issues.

Rewind briefly to a day in 2010, when the dew was still fresh and early morning sun filled the meeting room at Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL). There was also a rather large elephant in the elearning room: For SCORM to work fully, everyone pretty much had to log-in to an LMS. Fortunately, the ADL effort wasn’t a total loss.

Tin Can API, the evolution of SCORM

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”.

Whether you’re dealing with eLearning content creation or the administration of a learning management system, you’ll have SCORM to thank for making things run smoothly.
