Choosing Mobile Learning Solutions Using Standards

JCA Solutions

SCORM had the limitation that any learning you wanted recorded had to be eLearning ( formal learning ), online, launched in a browser from a LMS, and could only record very specific things. In addition, the eLearning itself was designed for the computer screen. That creates a problem for SCORM right there in that most eLearning content was made for the bigger displays of desktop and laptop computers. First, it doesn’t just have to be eLearning.

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

Trivantis

The Experience API (xAPI) is an updated standard for tracking eLearning; it shows a more complete picture of your learners’ activity than SCORM does. 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. Authoring Tools Blog

eLearning Standards—What They Are and Why They Matter

Trivantis

Just like humans need a common language to communicate with each other, eLearning courses and learning management systems (LMS) need a common language so that courses can send information back to the LMS from students taking those courses. To accomplish this, the industry has come up with several eLearning standards that allow courses created by any vendor to “talk” with an LMS created by any other vendor. which is perhaps the most prevalent eLearning standard used today.

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). In 2010, we were awarded a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) from ADL to modernize SCORM Communication, an effort that became known as Project Tin Can, and ultimately xAPI. At Rustici, our software is primarily responsible for helping eLearning organizations achieve “interoperability.”

Q&A - eLearning Standards Especially SCORM

Tony Karrer

SCORM is as close as you get to Mandatory in the world of eLearning. There are a bunch of other standards by ADL (who is responsible for SCORM ), IMS , IEEE LTSC including CORDRAâ„¢ , LOM , Meta-data , etc. in the eLearning world. Note: ARIADNE, AICC, IEEE LTSC, and IMS all participate in ADL's work on SCORM). There are also standards such as WebDAV that are going to be important for authoring tool implementations in the next few years.

Transitioning from SCORM to xAPI

Web Courseworks

On October 5 th , 2017, the Department of Defense announced that its eLearning curricula would adhere to xAPI standards rather than the more traditional SCORM standards of the eLearning industry. If a large government body that used to require the use of SCORM standards in their eLearning is willing to take the plunge, the rest of us might take a moment to consider doing so ourselves. Some SCORM authoring tools promise to do just that.

A SCORM-Certified LMS Helps Companies Score

Because such a wide variety of companies utilize eLearning systems, it’s necessary for LMSs to come in many shapes and sizes. To put it plainly, SCORM is recognized as an authority, if not the authority, for learning management systems. It was during that year when President Clinton signed an executive order that led to the creation of Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL), the initiative that SCORM comes under. eLearning platforms are customizable.

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].
