Mike Rustici – Crystal Balling with Learnnovators

Tin Can itself won’t create personalization, but the extra data it can capture will be a fundamental piece of the personalization puzzle. Mike: Early adopters are broken into two categories, traditional e-learning vendors and new market entrants. Traditional vendors are largely adopting at the SCORM parity level and using Tin Can as a better way to track formal training programs. New market entrants tend to be doing the more exciting things that open up new possibilities.

We created things with great people. We launched an online journal, the xAPI Quarterly , kickstarting the publishing arm of our business, Connections Forum , and we ran our first events, xAPI Camps that each were co-created with our participants. Our business boomed and so did that of many software vendors who create solutions that are tailored to meet some of the many things people use xAPI for. This is why open source was so crucial a path for xAPI.

Moodle (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment): Open source learning platform mostly implemented in education settings. One of the main benefits of open source platforms like Moodle is that they’re free and can be highly customized. Companies should be wary of the value a “free” learning platform can deliver and alert to the costs quickly accrued in maintaining, updating and supporting an LMS without a vendor.

A Glance Back at xAPI; A Look Ahead at Data Ownership

MakingBetter

The tl;dr : Like hardware, w hen it comes to data, if you can’t open it, you don’t own it. If you can’t open it, you don’t own it. Lower the barrier to entry and remove the obstacles to creating and improving learning experiences. Now, normally, it takes years for anyone to use a spec like what we’ve created. None of us standards nerds are used to the market so quickly adopting what we create. Other LRS vendors are following suit.

xAPI, LRS – The Interview

eLearning 24-7

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. I worked with ADL from 2003-2006 and participated in the Technical Working Group afterwards. We created a strategic framework that mapped knowledge sharing to measurable gains in productivity, quality and revenue. This work informed the conversations with several current and former ADL friends.

Phew! Reflecting on #ASTD10

Learning Visions

Companies want the flexibility and freedom of an open source model. People are frustrated with ongoing licensing fees, lack of good customer support and responsiveness from traditional LMS vendors, and slow time to implement. But did you know there is actually a Mr. SCORM and that he is the fabulous Aaron Silvers of ADL ? Getting social I didn’t have a lot of time to cruise the expo hall (man, there were a lot of vendors!),

I’m a recent convert, perhaps on the path to open source evangelism.) Because it’s open source, there are no licensing costs. Moodle and other open source products have huge communities behind them. Talented individuals who can program like hell and believe in the open source philosophy. There’s no vendor who creates Moodle per say. But the beauty of open source is you can customize it.

This post is for vendors, developers and implementers of the Experience API and for anyone who may one day create something with xAPI. I’m going to ask you as vendors, entrepreneurs, developers, designers from all around the world to provide me with your counsel as I ultimately must direct the effort. I want to encourage it by keeping it as open as we can AND by making it possible for the best approaches, not just the best spin, to find adoption.

Experience API

Answer: xAPI allows for learners to be identified by email address, Open ID or an account on some system, such as an LMS. Open Source LRS. Is there an open source LRS? Answer: There’s four different Open Source LRSs that I’m aware of: Learning Locker , ADL LRS , lxHive and TinMan. If you’re looking to get started with xAPI on a limited budget or want to do a lot of development yourself, an Open Source LRS is a good option.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: The Value of Instructional Designers

Learning Visions

In reducing the value of an instructional designer by handing them tools to be lone gunmen, we have created the problem of believing we can replace or eliminate the instructional designer, since our in-house resident experts can do the very same job. The tools are democratizing the learning process (in the same way blogs did for information) and giving the capability to the front line people and removing the friction that the formal learning departments create.
