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.

On October 5 th , 2017, the Department of Defense announced that its eLearning curricula would adhere to xAPI standards rather than the more traditional SCORM standards of the eLearning industry. I’m not going to delve deeply into the advantages and disadvantages of xAPI in this blog post. I wish I could tell you that there’s an easy fix or a mere change in settings when you export your project from your favorite SCORM authoring tool.

Think xAPI is Next-Generation SCORM? Think Again

Talented Learning

Anthony is an independent xAPI evangelist and Instructional Developer for the Internet of Things. If you’re an elearning professional, you’ve probably seen or heard the term xAPI countless times. But are you still fuzzy about where SCORM ends and xAPI begins? After years of educating people about xAPI (aka Experience Application Programming Interface ), I find that it is still one of the least-understood concepts in the digital learning world.

Over the past three years, xAPI has emerged as the hot new standard for delivering online training. xAPI is often described as the next evolution of SCORM. While the SCORM standard isn’t going anywhere soon, xAPI has redefined some of the fundamental practices of tracking learning experiences. But what is xAPI? What is xAPI? The SCORM specification was introduced by ADL in 1999. Rustici Software believe that “learning happens everywhere”.

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). Let’s talk about the background of SCORM and xAPI for a minute. With xAPI, you can track experiences like: • Mobile learning. Authoring Tools Blog

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. Funnily enough, Tin Can (xAPI) , which we’ll examine next, adopts a similar approach to AICC regarding the HACP and, as a result, can track data across domains, or indeed, almost anywhere. eLearning now: Tin Can (xAPI).

The aircraft industry has always had a high need for training and certification, and prior to 1988, this led to a variety of incompatible and closed system training programs that had unique hardware and software requirements. The AICC was dissolved in 2014, and all of its efforts have been transferred to the Department of Defense’s (DOD) Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) group. In 1997, the DOD established the ADL Initiative to standardize and modernize training.
