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? 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. XAPI allows tracking and tracing from anywhere. Tracking experiences.

For well over a decade the Sharable Content Object Reference Model, or SCORM as it’s affectionately known, has been the standard for tracking eLearning. SCORM ( S harable C ontent O bject R eference Model) is a set of technical specifications and guidelines designed to create a standard for which course creators and learning management systems can communicate. SCORM reports Meta level data about track completion, time, pass/fail, and a single score.

LMS stands for Learning Management System. 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.

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. To put it simply, the main difference between LTI and SCORM is that LTI is focused on connecting learning systems, whereas SCORM is focused on launching training content and tracking interactions. LTI is focused on connecting learning systems in a standard way. SCORM is focused on launching training content and tracking interactions.

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. The “profile”, as it relates to the Registry, was intended as an abstract concept that allowed a user to “request” a namespace, under which they could track the items in their information model, and specifically, where they could link one or more recipes.

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. From web activity streams, people started thinking about tracking other forms of activity.

Whether you’re dealing with eLearning content creation or the administration of a learning management system, you’ll have SCORM to thank for making things run smoothly. The problem was that there was no agreed structure for eLearning at this time, so every piece of content had to be tailored for a specific delivery system.

It defines how content from the client side interacts with whichever learning management system is being used. All SCORM compliance means is that the content will work on any system that can read scorm – i.e. pretty much all LMSs out there. 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? 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 ).
