Choosing Mobile Learning Solutions Using Standards

JCA Solutions

There is the story about a woman who signed up for an online dating service and got paired with a software developer. Then came Experience API (xAPI) and CMI5. However, most authoring software now has the ability to develop content that will adjust according to screen size. But they have been able to afford to do that because of the features of HTML5, many of which make the Flash player obsolete. Using xAPI for mobile learning gives you some options.

Taking cmi5 adoption further by developing a Conformance Test Suite

Rustici Software

For the last 18 years, some of the most important work we’ve done at Rustici Software has been the standards-based efforts we’ve worked on with the Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative (ADL). Over the years, our folks have participated in the working groups for, and the development of, standards as ubiquitous as SCORM, as forgotten as RTWS, and more recently xAPI.

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

Experience API

Questions: What is the common identifier that allows the xAPI to connect the data provided by the ‘activity provider’ to a specific user in the LRS? Answer: xAPI allows for learners to be identified by email address, Open ID or an account on some system, such as an LMS. How do you best see xAPI interfacing with an LMS? Which LMS platforms out there today best interface with xAPI? That’s one of the big advantages of xAPI, *anything* can make a statement.

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. So, does xAPI replace SCORM? .

Standard Options Apply

MakingBetter

This post is for vendors, developers and implementers of the Experience API and for anyone who may one day create something with xAPI. The choices made soon will ultimately impact what you will be able to do with xAPI 3, 5 and 20 years from now. 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. Currently, adoption of xAPI is very LRS-centric.

The DevLearn eLearning Rockstar Stage Reveal

eLearning Brothers

Stop by the eLearning Rockstar stage—conveniently located near the eLearning Brothers booth—to learn new techniques, see new tools, and become an eLearning Rockstar. Technology discussed in this session: A variety of web-based multi-player games showcased on mobile/tablets/kiosks. At IBM, John received a patent for software design for his work in developing operating systems. John was also co-founder and lead engineer at BocaSoft, a software utility creation company.

SCORM Compliance and Tin Can Api

Paradiso

Imagine owning lots of DVDs but not having a player capable of playing them. In the case of elearning, SCORM is like the DVD player, without which you wouldn’t be able to play your movies. SCORM compliance ensures that content produced on SCORM authoring tools can be used on SCORM enabled learning management systems. SCORM was originally developed way back in the 90s by Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL), an initiative of the U.S.

Top 10 LMS Forecasts for 2015

eLearning 24-7

One of the most interesting items which presents to me an unknown variable is CMI-5, a compliance standard (formally with AICC) now headed up by ADL. Standard adoption takes time (as we can see with xAPI), so if you are concerned or worried about having to go with CMI-5, etc. 1 xAPI. I as many folks constantly referred to xAPI as Tin Can, but recently say in the past month, I found out that Tin Can was a trademarked name by Rustici Software.
