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? 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. You upload the SCORM compliant course in your LMS and invite your learners.

Project Tincan: What should SCORM 2.0 look like?: Participate!

Challenge to Learn

Today I was interviewed by Ben Clarck from Rustici software. They do a project for the ADL to investigate what the next version of SCORM should look like. SCORM is the standard of the e-Learning industry and now and then we say less nice things about it, but it is our guarantee (most of the times) that content from our authoring systems will actually run in most LMS, and that the learners progress and results are tracked and reported.

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.

This standard is being developed by Rustici Software (with a world-wide active community participating and contributing) for Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) – the keepers of SCORM. However, ‘Experience API’ is ADL’s official name for this standard. More and more vendors (authoring tools, Learning Management Systems, social platforms, mobile games, and simulations) are adopting or testing this new standard.

Bottom-Line Performance

ADL, or Advanced Distributive Learning , is the government agency behind the spec. An API is a language two software programs or databases use to talk to each-other. The SCORM API is tested and reliable for tracking of basic information such as course completion, time spent taking a course, completion date, and post-test score. This works great, because the only learning interactions anyone has ever thought of hinge directly on how learners do on a post-test, right?

SCORM Cloud is a tool used to test the SCORM packages developed for Learning Management Systems. This has a really important impact because the software developers can enter this platform to perform quality control of the content packages. With SCORM Cloud you can perform the following activities: Track usage with built-in reporting tools that help you identify who is taking what courses and dig into question-level course analytics.

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.

In a traditional classroom-based teaching and learning environment, the only time you get to assess the knowledge of each learner is at the end of tests and examinations. This method is not conducive to the holistic development of learners as it doesn’t show the whole picture of the learning activity. It can help you track, store, and communicate learning experiences, both offline and online, in the form of statements. Real world activity tracking.

4 Reasons Tin Can API (xAPI) Is NOT Just a New Version of SCORM

InfoPro Learning

For well over a decade the Sharable Content Object Reference Model, or SCORM as it’s affectionately known, has been the standard for tracking eLearning. SCORM reports Meta level data about track completion, time, pass/fail, and a single score. ADL provides an overview ( [link]. tracking-analysis/experience-api/. ) About the author: Marketing Coordinator for the US, Robert focuses on exploring and creating impactful material.

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). With SCORM, when learners enroll in an online course, the state of the enrollment/course is recorded as “not attempted.” At that point, the status changes to “completed” or “passed” or “failed” depending on how learners perform and how the course is configured to report outcomes.

SCORM compliance ensures that content produced on SCORM authoring tools can be used on SCORM enabled learning management systems. SCORM compliance lets course authors create dynamic and engaging content which, aside from being able to be played on LMS platforms, gives trainers the chance to track progress.

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 ).

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

Experience API

Answer: xAPI allows for learners to be identified by email address, Open ID or an account on some system, such as an LMS. Activity Providers always need to know who a learner is in order to send the LRS data about that learner, which can either be done by having the learner log into the activity provider, or some kind of launch/single-sign-on process. With an LMS, it’s easy to see where learners would go to view their own learning accomplishments.
