The ongoing work of learning standards
SEPTEMBER 15, 2017
The Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative of the Department of Defense finally had enough. The ADL provided compliance testing, so that content and systems could be validated for interoperability. And we want to know whether or how well someone did for critical business skills. From web activity streams, people started thinking about tracking other forms of activity. ADL decided to create a new standard, the Experience API (xAPI; originally known as Tin Can).
