There is the story about a woman who signed up for an online dating service and got paired with a software developer. With a wider variety of ways we could deliver learning experiences, combined with the desire to support and track performance, things had to change. However, most authoring software now has the ability to develop content that will adjust according to screen size. That could lead to some SCORM tracking issues.

SCORM is a set of technical standards for e-Learning software products. It tells programmers how to write their code so that it works well with other e-learning software. Tin Can (or the Experience API), the successor to SCORM, is an e-Learning software specification that allows learning content and learning systems to speak to each other in a manner that records and tracks all types of learning experiences.

The standard is developed by the company RUSTICI but ADL is still the steward of the specification, just like SCORM. Perceived simplicity is a core ingredient of the new offering and a major adoption point for LMS and authoring tools developers. TinCan also claims improvements on another commonly required but rarely delivered functionality – the ability to complete learning objects offline and synchronize when you get online.

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 ).

SCORM won the hearts of L&D folk everywhere, when it was invented by the ADL in 2000. It solved the eLearning dilemma of its age – software incompatibility. SCORM solved this headache by providing a standard software specification that worked across all learning technology. Thousands of online courses continue to be created in SCORM and many authoring tools solely support SCORM compliant learning technology. Limited Tracking Functions.

This particular one was special, as we were formally reviewing the Project Authorization Request (PAR) for the Experience API to become a formal standards project. In response to their concerns about “tracking,” which rightly furrows eyebrows and adds wrinkles prematurely to us all, a suggestion that gained momentum was that we consider breaking up xAPI into three separate standards efforts — three different documents to be linked together.
