Choosing Mobile Learning Solutions Using Standards

JCA Solutions

Using Standards Separately or Together for Effective Mobile Learning. It would have to be installed on the mobile device but would allow for offline work. That would provide the ability to keep records offline if necessary and sync when possible. We did not create this, it is a proof of concept created by Advanced Distributed Learning ( ADL ) and made freely available. First you will want to create a free account on ADL’s sample Learning Record Store (LRS).

Difference between SCORM and AICC; benefits

And in a way to address them, the SCORM model was created as part of the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative. Furthermore, SCORM is a very popular and effective set of standards. Furthermore, SCORM doesn’t work offline like some other standards.

Tin Can API & the Future of E-Learning

Learnnovators

Here is a quick re-cap on this learning standard, before we take a closer look at some of the use cases: Experience API is a new (and evolving) e-learning specification that makes it possible to collect data about the wide range of learning experiences a person goes through (both online and offline). This standard is being developed by Rustici Software (with a world-wide active community participating and contributing) for Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) – the keepers of SCORM.

The Role of xAPI in Creating Powerful Learning Experiences for the Modern Workforce

Origin Learning

It was originally a research project that was awarded to Rustici Software by ADL. xAPI is an eLearning specification that makes it possible to collect data about the wide range of experiences a person has within online and offline training activities. It was originally a research project that was awarded to Rustici Software by ADL. The LRS enables the tracking part of the learning experience and is the very basis of the xAPI system to work effectively.

Tim Chudy of Rustici Software delivered a great presentation showcasing what Catholic Relief Services is doing with their Watershed LRS to improve the effectiveness of their relief efforts in disaster-stricken parts of the world. It took a combination of xAPI and a LOT of grit to effectively handle offline SCORM-like capabilities in the app to track mobile content and use xAPI to sync up data back to an LRS when connectivity was established.

Tin Can API, the evolution of SCORM

Paradiso

Tin Can API , also known as Experience API or xAPI, is generally considered to be the successor to SCORM , and expands the ability of the organizations that use it to gather data about the experiences, both offline and online, experiences that are quantifiable, trackable and shareable. Originally developed by Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL), an initiative of the Unite States Department of Defense, SCORM was designed to standardize and modernize their training courses.

TinCan Demystified

The standard is developed by the company RUSTICI but ADL is still the steward of the specification, just like SCORM. A nice side-effect of the messaging system is that any enabled device or program can send Tin Can API statements (mobile phones, simulations, games, real world activities etc.). TinCan also claims improvements on another commonly required but rarely delivered functionality – the ability to complete learning objects offline and synchronize when you get online.

Q&A - eLearning Standards Especially SCORM

Tony Karrer

There are a bunch of other standards by ADL (who is responsible for SCORM ), IMS , IEEE LTSC including CORDRAâ„¢ , LOM , Meta-data , etc. However, as Pierre pointed out in the comments (and I've edited the text here based on his comments - thanks Pierre) - ADL's SCORM really incorporates what we need from these other standards and thus we've not needed to spend effort going into these standards separately.

That we can use web services and describe a consistent (albeit imperfect) approach to handling offline activity and syncing localized activity data back to an LRS… this is a huge advancement beyond what we’ve done with SCORM — even as we acknowledge that it doesn’t replace SCORM. It’s near impossible to to effectively manage an international standardization process that restricts scope at the document level.

Webinar Q&A: Empowering Continuous Learning with the Experience API (xAPI)

Experience API

Answer: There’s four different Open Source LRSs that I’m aware of: Learning Locker , ADL LRS , lxHive and TinMan. Can Experience API be used with the LRS to record the effectiveness of the different learning paths in terms of the workplace application of the knowledge, skills or behaviours? xAPI can absolutely be used to measure the effectiveness of different learning paths. that can keep that record offline. Rustici Software have an offline player for SCORM.

Defining clear objectives also helps to assess the effectiveness of a course after its completion. SCORM (Shareable Content Object Reference Model): A set of standards developed by Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) and applied when developing LMS content. Tin Can (xAPI) : Developed by Rustici Software at the request of ADL to support the concept that “learning happens everywhere”. Tin Can delivers a far more detailed view of learner progress, both online and offline.

ADL (Advanced Distributed Learning): An initiative established by the US Department Of Defense in 1999, aiming to make the delivery of online training consistent across content formats, technologies, and organizations. When creating blended learning, consider how each goal might be best achieved in either an online or offline setting. One benefit of a cloud LMS is that it’s quicker and more cost-effective to install than self-hosted learning solutions.

It’s a five-phase framework that instructional designers use; a guideline for building effective training and learning support tools. ADL (Advanced Distributed Learning). One benefit of a cloud LMS is that it’s quicker and more cost-effective to install than self-hosted learning solutions. An instructional designer typically uses an authoring tool to develop effective course content that achieves specific learning objectives.
