Looking back at ADL’s virtual iFEST conference

Rustici Software

Once again we were excited to participate in NTSA’s ADL iFEST conference. While we always prefer to socialize in person between sessions, the NTSA and ADL created a virtual format that still allowed us to connect and engage with industry professionals.

Day 2 @LSCON, Nice keynote and I finally understand TinCan, Experience API, Scorm, ADL, IACC and CMI-5…….

Challenge to Learn

CMI-5 and XAPI (Tin Can API), Bill McDonald , Kris Rockwell It took me a while to figure the meaning of TinCan and I understood the impact it can have on our learning community, but I never understood why we have two competing standards (Scorm and AICC), and now there is a new standard emerging CMI-5 based on TinCan. Later on the ADL was formed and they wanted a more extended standard, based on the AICC specs. Both the ADL and AICC where working on a new generation of standards.

Is it time to replace SCORM? A Look at Emerging Learning Technologies

Growth Engineering

SCORM won the hearts of L&D folk everywhere, when it was invented by the ADL in 2000. A Look at Emerging Learning Technologies appeared first on Growth Engineering. Is it finally time for SCORM, the specification superstar of the noughties, to move over for modern learning technology? Here’s the case for making the change to xAPI, LRS and cm15. It was a big hit in its heyday and it’s sure got some staying power!

The ongoing work of learning standards

Litmos

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. A concern with what people do , not just what they learn, was also emerging. ADL decided to create a new standard, the Experience API (xAPI; originally known as Tin Can).

With Gratitude…

MakingBetter

We dealt with emergencies and surprise medical concerns. xAPI is so successful that it’s actually becoming a challenge for ADL to support it to the scale it now demands. The Design Cohort program that began in 2013 became so well attended and populated that it couldn’t be supported by ADL anymore — they just don’t have the resources to do it on their own. ADL now has dozens of high priority projects and there are maybe six full-time engineers they can resource for xAPI.

Centralizing content and building xAPI Profiles at iFest

Rustici Software

We have been working with government entities since 2005, so it’s no surprise that we were at NTSA’s ADL iFest 2019 conference. While the xAPI standard and other emerging ADL initiatives are actively innovating exciting new standards, the reality is that training managers need tools that can be used to solve problems in the short term. TJ Seabrooks presenting at NTSA’s ADL iFest 2019.

xAPI Shifting to 3rd Gear

MakingBetter

We had people well outside of the ADL bubble talking about real world things things they were using xAPI to accomplish. had small emergent breakout groups and large breakout groups moderated by our partners Shelly Blake-Plock, Mike Hruska and Nick Washburn. You might be surprised to find out we’re in 2nd gear. We shifted out of 1st gear at DevLearn last year. Between November 2014’s xAPI Hyperdrive and the xAPI track at DevLearn 2014, we hit our stride.

Challenge to Learn

Project TinCan was a research by Rustici software (sponsored by ADL) into the next generation Scorm. on The next generation of e-Learning (Grand Ballroom, emerging technology stage). Tomorrow is the start of the Learning Solution conference, but for me it started today. The Ipad/Iphone app is now available and that is a great way to start the conference. You can easily browse through all the session, see the presentations and add them to your schedule with one click. I love it.

Think xAPI is Next-Generation SCORM? Think Again

Talented Learning

Rewind briefly to a day in 2010, when the dew was still fresh and early morning sun filled the meeting room at Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL). Oh, and as mobile devices became widely used, even more challenges emerged. Instead, the team at ADL actually paved the way for the Actively Narrating Technical Interface-Sharable Content Object Reference Model – otherwise known as the ANTI-SCORM. Fortunately, the ADL effort wasn’t a total loss.

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. This work informed the conversations with several current and former ADL friends. Project Tin Can” was the name Rustici Software came up with to describe the work ADL contracted them to do.

Reflections on DevLearn’s xAPI Hyperdrive

MakingBetter

It uses xAPI to translate interactions out of simulations (think medical or pilot simulations, not Captivate simulations) into Human Performance Markup Language (HPML), which is an emerging markup language in the HR space being touted among Human Capital managers (talent managers) in federal government. Speaking of events, ADL has a PlugFest happening in December in Orlando. Still emanating from DevLearn two weeks ago, the buzz about the Experience API is resonating.

What is Cmi5? A new set of rules for xAPI

LearnUpon

In recent years another standard has emerged that has breathed new life and possibilities into the way in which your content can interact with your LMS and wider eLearning ecosystem. As ADL have taken over the cmi5 specification there is a suggestion that this will prompt further evolution. With cmi5, ADL are writing the packaging and structuring specification that xAPI failed to deliver. SCORM has long been the most common standard for eLearning content.

What is SCORM?

Growth Engineering

The Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative (ADL) answered the call, and developed the Sharable Content Object Reference Model, more conveniently known as SCORM. The ADL has emerged once more to steward in the new age of eLearning specification. If you have any involvement whatsoever with online learning, you’re going to need to wrap your head around SCORM.

A Conversation with Reuben Tozman about Learning on Demand: Part One

Kapp Notes

When information is integrated into the technology in ways that are consistent with how the technology is servicing humanity, a powerful ‘learning on demand model’ emerges. Project TinCan otherwise known as the ADL ‘Experience API’ is the first standard that allows for this. I seem to be hanging out with a lot of writers these days. I recently had a chance to catch up with Reuben Tozman and ask him a few questions about his new book published through ASTD.

Why SCORM 2004 failed & what that means for Tin Can

eFront

Sign #3: ADL itself heavily supports Tin Can as the successor of SCORM.[4]. SCORM 2004 had to change in order to adapt to such a dramatically different environment and rather than do that ADL decided to save itself the trouble and start from scratch through what we now know as Tin Can or Experience API (xAPI). Nothing is perfect though as ADL admits [5]. An interesting decision regarding Tin Can is that ADL hired a company to drive the Tin Can project (Rustici Software).

Beginners Guide To Tin Can API

ProProfs

In the last couple of years, the Tin Can API has emerged as a buzzword in the arena of authoring tools, learning management systems, and content development. Tin Can API was developed by Rustici Software when they were contracted by ADL, the keepers of SCORM, to come up with a new approach to learning systems and methodology. This was the year 2010 and ADL was looking for research ideas for the development of the next generation of SCORM.

What is xAPI?

LearnUpon

Over the past three years, xAPI has emerged as the hot new standard for delivering online training. The SCORM specification was introduced by ADL in 1999. The term “quantified learner” has emerged to describe this ability to track individuated learning data using technology. xAPI is often described as the next evolution of SCORM. While the SCORM standard isn’t going anywhere soon, xAPI has redefined some of the fundamental practices of tracking learning experiences.

Standards and success

Clark Quinn

While IMS & IEEE held meetings to get learning content standards nailed down, ADL just put their foot down with SCORM (and US Defense is a big foot), and it pretty much got everyone’s attention. Eventually, one format will emerge, but it may take committees, or it may be that someone like Linden Labs will own the space sufficiently that everyone will lock into a format they provide. Apparently, Google has recently opined that the future of mobile is web standards.

Standard Options Apply

MakingBetter

By making it easier for people to adopt specific parts of the would-be standard, we enable use cases on the fringe of our imaginations that may emerge as the strongest and most valuable use cases. International adopters, outside of NATO allies, are not able to work on this through ADL for obvious reasons, but they have come (and will come) to IEEE, and all sectors of adoption are welcome to work together there.
