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. They have called this project Tincan. you can make op your own and participate in the project. The one thing I will bother you with is that I would like to have SCORM as an exchange standard between authoring systems. Our customers invest a lot of time and money in creating content in our tools.

#LSCON 2012: trends

Challenge to Learn

The good news is that the new SCORM standard (based on project TinCan) will actually make this possible. We report some progress and result information to a LMS that usually has bad reporting facilities, let alone analyzing tools. Imagine information on the usage of your course is available in your authoring tool. I believe this trend is emerging and again project TinCan will play a big role. But again there is project TinCan, it will be the new Scorm standard.

Sign #2: There is no certification process for tools and packages for the latest SCORM 2004 4 th edition. Sign #3: ADL itself heavily supports Tin Can as the successor of SCORM.[4]. For example, many rapid elearning tools that are available for creating courses DO NOT allow you to build anything easily other than basic SCORM 2004. Content authors should be able to rely on a consistent set of UI expectations. Nothing is perfect though as ADL admits [5].

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. Some SCORM authoring tools promise to do just that.

We are developing a SCORM or AICC compliant course either custom or using an authoring tool. Here are some ideas - SCORM Test Suite One of the best things about SCORM (ADL's Sharable Content Reference Model) is that it is pretty easy to test and diagnose problems. My first piece of advice for anyone developing a course is to make sure it runs with the ADL's test suite because that gives you cover in case there are issues.
