The ongoing work of learning standards

Litmos

Consider the internet; developments on top of the TCP/IP protocol like SMTP and HTML allowed a variety of tools to work together to bring us email and the world wide web. Initially, when you developed eLearning, you were pretty much dependent on the tool you developed it in. You could use any of the many authoring tools, such as Authorware, but you needed an appropriate player. From web activity streams, people started thinking about tracking other forms of activity.

SCORM vs. LTI: what’s the difference?

Rustici Software

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. To put it simply, the main difference between LTI and SCORM is that LTI is focused on connecting learning systems, whereas SCORM is focused on launching training content and tracking interactions. It stands for Learning Tools Interoperability and it is a standard created by the IMS Global Learning Consortium.

Traditional instructor led training is expensive and, in some cases, difficult to track its effectiveness. CamStudio - (Authoring Tool) CamStudio is able to record all screen and audio activity on your computer and create industry-standard AVI video files and using its built-in SWF Producer can turn those AVIs into lean, mean, bandwidth-friendly Streaming Flash videos (SWFs). elearning tecnología-educativa software

Day 5: xAPI and more – what next for SCORM?

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. In my opinion, the main benefit is that AICC uses HTTP post requests, *Known as AICC-HACP* , to track data. only the second version in its history) is still the specification commonly implemented with authoring tools and learning management systems.

Q&A - eLearning Standards Especially SCORM

Tony Karrer

Here's a recent one to get me started: Is it mandatory to use SCORM while developing an E-learning Software? 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 ).

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: The Value of Instructional Designers

Learning Visions

Many instructional designers ( Christy Tucker , Wendy Wickham ) build their own courses using tools like Captivate. He says its important that instructional designers understand the tools and technology that are out there (as an architect understands building materials), but an instructional designer should be tool-independent and "technology-agnostic". Do you think instructional designers should be able to use the tools? So, if Im not teaching, Im not instructing.

It’s a five-phase framework that instructional designers use; a guideline for building effective training and learning support tools. ADL (Advanced Distributed Learning). Authoring Tool. Often paired with an LMS, this software is used to develop content for online learning and training programs. An eLearning content authoring tool is a software package which content developers use to create and package eLearning course content using SCORM or xAPI standards.

Facebook for e-Learning

UdutuTeach This application allows you to import courses from myUdutu (authoring tool). You can manage which learners can take your course and track the learners progress. In my opinion, we can not use Facebook as a Learning Management System but we can use Facebook as a tool that will enhance/support an e-Learning course. Apps and tools are great but do most materials currently used work with social networks?
