Difference between SCORM and AICC; benefits

Admittedly, there are several authoring tools out there that one can use to design and develop e-learning courses. Most of these tools can be used to create and publish courses that are SCORM or AICC compliant.

Why the Experience API (xAPI) Is Crucial to Your eLearning Success

Trivantis

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. First, they created SCORM—Sharable Content Object Reference Model. Authoring Tools Blog

A SCORM-Certified LMS Helps Companies Score

TOPYX LMS

Too many LMS users, even administrators, have no idea what SCORM (the Shareable Content Object Reference Model) is or what makes it important. To put it plainly, SCORM is recognized as an authority, if not the authority, for learning management systems. The Shareable Content Object Reference Model is part of a national initiative that began in 1999. If not, consider implementing an LMS that carries the approval of the Shareable Content Object Reference Model.

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. It stands for Learning Tools Interoperability and it is a standard created by the IMS Global Learning Consortium. With LTI, a learner logs into an LMS (what is referred to as an “LTI tool consumer”) and typically selects a resource link to play a course. We refer to this sometimes as “the big four.”.

SCORM stands for Shareable Content Object Reference Model. If it’s not certified by ADL, which SCORM API elements are supported? ADL is the governing body for SCORM. For an LMS to be SCORM-certified, it needs to have passed ADL’s testing process. If the LMS isn’t officially certified by ADL, you need to check which features it includes to make sure it can support the roll-out of your elearning in the way you need it to.

Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) is a set of technical content standards for creating and launching online training courses. On the other hand, SCORM certified LMS ensures that a specific product under discussion gets certified by SCORM governing body, ADL.

To help you better understand how Tin Can is transforming online learning , let’s now look under the hood of the software. Released in April 2013, Tin Can API succeeded its long-established predecessor, SCORM or Sharable Content Object Reference Model. Today, you’ll find Tin Can API or xAPI present in some of the best corporate training software. It was done as a part of a research project commissioned by The Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative.

eLearning Standards—What They Are and Why They Matter

Trivantis

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.

Profile Recipes vs. xAPI Profiles

Experience API

With shared common models becoming more common, reporting tools targeting those shared models could be created. This provided a range of off the shelf tools for common experiences. This is the primary difference between the two, with “xapi-authored-profiles” being more technical. An “ xAPI profile ” is a newer concept, created by ADL in a more formal way through their BAA process.

Aaron, can you tell me a little bit about your background and how you became involved with ADL? Two months after my layoff, a company called CTC recruited me to work for ADL. My job was to help author SCORM 2004, focusing on how to develop content that would work in SCORM systems. I worked with ADL from 2003-2006 and participated in the Technical Working Group afterwards. This work informed the conversations with several current and former ADL friends.

Imagine a situation where you are asked to create an elearning program or search for a suitable learning management system (LMS) tool for achieving your training requirements. SCORM is an acronym that stands for “Sharable Content Object Reference Model”. It is a set of technical standards that were mainly developed for supporting elearning tools. SCORM ensures the interoperability between online learning software. Allows the usage of different authoring software tools.

SCORM stands for “Shareable Content Object Reference Model.” 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.

Why You Don’t Need a SCORM Compliant Learning Management System

Continu

Shareable Content Object Reference Model.” Reference model” means that SCORM is a set of standards to make sure different learning management systems can work together. So SCORM is a system that lets different pieces of software share digital learning content. When ADL created SCORM trainers weren’t thinking about these things yet. The first thing you’ll need is software that can create SCORM-compliant learning materials. Cheaper, more flexible software options.

The Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative (ADL) answered the call, and developed the Sharable Content Object Reference Model, more conveniently known as SCORM. Most content authoring tools are SCORM-compliant, meaning that they handle the technicalities for you. The ADL has emerged once more to steward in the new age of eLearning specification. So expect to see the incumbent supported by both LMSs and authoring tools for many years to come!

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.

The Shareable Content Object Reference Model – more commonly known as SCORM – is a set of very technical standards and specifications used for web-based elearning. SCORM compliance ensures that content produced on SCORM authoring tools can be used on SCORM enabled learning management systems.

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? The other situation is if you are building something that is not a course, e.g., it's reference material. Most LMS systems have ways to launch these kinds of reference systems (they are just a web page after all). There are a bunch of other standards by ADL (who is responsible for SCORM ), IMS , IEEE LTSC including CORDRAâ„¢ , LOM , Meta-data , etc.

Perceived simplicity is a core ingredient of the new offering and a major adoption point for LMS and authoring tools developers.
