The ongoing work of learning standards

Litmos

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 problem with committee work is well known; in this case vendors who participated wanted the standard to make it easy for their content to be made compliant. Vendors got on board, and SCORM became a more-or-less viable mechanism.

Day 5: xAPI and more – what next for SCORM?

While many eLearning vendors still support AICC, the standard is usually a legacy of older platforms and businesses. From the perspective of an LMS vendor, the original white paper was received as the definitive word from the xAPI crew and quickly became set in stone. Pitched as the “true next generation of SCORM”, ADL have taken over the cmi5 specification (which suggests it will evolve!). The IMS Global Learning Consortium have focused on these standards in particular.

AICC and SCORM Compliance: The Benefits for Your e-Learning

Trivantis

In the late 1990s, each learning management system had its own proprietary content format, which encouraged vendor lock-in. You had to use that vendor’s tools to create e-Learning that worked with that LMS, or your content wouldn’t play. To solve this problem, in 1999 the government tasked a small research laboratory, ADL, to “develop common specifications and standards for e-learning.” The Benefits of Making Your e-Learning AICC and SCORM Compliant .

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.

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." If Im giving someone job advice on how to get into the field of instructional design, Im still going to tell them that additional technology skills will help.

ADL (Advanced Distributed Learning). Integrating with a vendor’s API can speed up the eLearning processes by automating time-consuming manual tasks like updating, deleting, or exporting lists of users. FAQs allow learners to get the information they need without having to contact the vendor directly. . 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.
