Standard Options Apply

MakingBetter

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 lay out options for how we can approach standardization and the reasoning behind them. 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. Consider Breaking Up the Spec Into Separate Standards Efforts.

The ongoing work of learning standards

At the dawn of the video recording age, a battle raged about the best standard to use: VHS or Betamax. In it, Sony came out with a better standard, but kept it to themselves. Meanwhile, JVC’s VHS standard wasn’t quite as good, but they openly licensed it. As Stephen Johnson tells us, in his book Where Good Ideas Come From , the openness of standards fosters innovation. . Standards provide several benefits. Learning Standards.

Q&A - eLearning Standards Especially SCORM

Tony Karrer

You want to implement your courseware to the SCORM standard if you plan to have it launched and/or tracked under an LMS. SCORM is a fairly easy standard to deal with especially since most people are fine with a single SCO that does only single score/completion reporting. What about other Standards? Most of the time, it's to handle cross-domain issues, i.e., learning content is on different server than learning management.

ve ever met anyone, outside the DOD / ADL who doesn???t And the LMS / LCMS products and vendors engender pure hate at every contact point whether purchaser, content develoeprs, admins or end users. Make no mistake, I still think there is a role to be filled here but it is a role that focuses on pedagogy, design, design, design, and to a small degree any unique, technical requirements that are not being met by existing and emerging market standards.

If the manifest file isn’t located in the root of the zip, the course isn’t a valid SCORM content package at all and you will likely run into issues importing it to your LMS. The rise of mLearning has also driven adoption of the Tin Can xAPI eLearning content standard which can track far more learning activities than older standards like SCORM.

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.

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]. It was a lot of work for LMS vendors to implement and more importantly, it was too complex for many courseware developers to use. In other words, the added benefits from the standard were unbalanced by its complexity. The end result was low adoption from vendors and instructional designers. Even when vendors offered support for SCORM 2004 this was handicapped to great extent.

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

LearnUpon

As we approach the end of our SCORM series, in many ways it’s just the beginning for eLearning content standards. On day one of our series, we learned that AICC (Aviation Industry Computer-Based-Training Committee) can be considered the first eLearning standard, used to track how learners progress through course content. While many eLearning vendors still support AICC, the standard is usually a legacy of older platforms and businesses.

Tin Can API and SCORM are both eLearning standards, which help companies to measure the impact of their training programs. At some point in the past, eLearning standards were built for facilitating interoperability between content and LMS; now with SCORM and especially Tin Can API, it’s about tracking learning experiences as much as it is about interoperability.

SCORM is a set of technical standards for e-Learning software products. Both SCORM and the Tin Can API were developed by the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL), a research group sponsored by the DoD, with help from Rustici Software. However, while SCORM has served the e-Learning community well over the last 10 years, there are issues with the standard that the new Tin Can API can now address.
