The ongoing work of learning standards


And then the IMS (an initiative of Educause before being spun out as an independent effort) started creating standards, as did the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), the major body in the US responsible for computing standards. 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.

» October 09, 2007 We Lost A Good One Folks.Well Miss You Philip Philip Dodds , Chief Architect of SCORM and ADL (and so many more important things), died this Saturday. Im sure there will be many posts remembering Philip.there should be. Im just a bit dazed that Philip is gone - he was always there - behind the scenes - working incredibly hard and ridiculously long hours for little or no credit.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: The Value of Instructional Designers

Learning Visions

Reuben on the downside of rapid e-Learning tools: The emergence of "easy-to-use" authoring tools, however, has tempted us to believe that the instructional designer can do it all! But Im not sure I can get people to hold their answers back. Sorry Tony, but Im going to jump into the conversation now. Dont worry though; Im sure Ill still have more to say if you do this for the Big Question for February. Im on a smaller team though, so we are basically the "one-stop shop."

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.

ADL (Advanced Distributed Learning). Often contrasted with the ADDIE process, the Agile design method emerged in the 1970s and became widely adopted in the 1990s. The primary purpose of the LTI standard, created by the IMS Global Learning Consortium, is to connect learning systems, such as an LMS, with external service tools. Perhaps the most ubiquitous set of standards, SCORM was developed by Advanced Distributed Learning ( ADL ) and applied when developing LMS content.
