Experience (Tin Can) API: What to Expect from Your LMS Provider

Bottom-Line Performance

ADL, or Advanced Distributive Learning , is the government agency behind the spec. This works great, because the only learning interactions anyone has ever thought of hinge directly on how learners do on a post-test, right? Experience API brings us a number of improvements to take advantage of in L&D: It can track learner progress without a constant internet connection. It can record information on social interactions. Tin Can. Experience. TIN CAN! Experience!

If it’s not certified by ADL, which SCORM API elements are supported? ADL is the governing body for SCORM. For an LMS to be SCORM-certified, it needs to have passed ADL’s testing process. Others offer different ways of organizing and presenting your content so you can tailor your course creation to your learners.

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. SCORM no longer understands or meets learners’ needs. SCORM is no longer up to the job because its ability to track learners’ behaviour, preferences and interests is limited. It can track learner progress and completion of online content. People are learning all the time, everywhere and SCORM is unable to track and record this vital learner behaviour.

Building the Next Generation of SCORM

Integrated Learnings

Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) is leading the effort for the next generation of SCORM. Existing SCORM specifications are limited to a single learner mindset. It will collect activity streams similar to the way social media applications track activity streams. By doing SCORM in this new way, content can in fact reside on social networks and report across domains to an LRS that is part of your LMS. by Jonathan Shoaf.

SCORM Compliance and Tin Can Api

Paradiso

SCORM was originally developed way back in the 90s by Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL), an initiative of the U.S. ADL was given the task of developing standards so that learning content could be “accessible, interoperable, durable and reusable”, and it is these standards that will eventually become the SCORM specifications that we know and love today. The information it collects is very different to what an LMS collects, and provides a much more rounded view of learner progress.

Tin Can API, the evolution of SCORM

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. It is a set of standards and specifications for developing web-based educational technology, standards developed by the ADL which had always to adhere strictly to SCROM’s requirements, these being “accessible, reusable, inoperable, and durable content and systems”.

Don’t forget “fun”?

Kapp Notes

Fellowship: Game as social framework. While each of those are interesting experiences and many relate directly to instructional concepts like discovery learning and social learning theory (Bandura). Also, an ADL study indicated that a simulation/game did not have to be entertaining to be instructional so maybe “fun&# is not an element but if we look at motivating learners to participate than fun is an element…so more pondering is needed.

However, if you wanted to know details like which questions in your course did most learners attempt, you could not get this information in SCORM. For instance, people learn a lot of new things everyday on social networks. These experiences would include each and every interaction of learners with your course as well as learning that happens outside the LMS such as in simulation environments, social media or even in daily conversation.

Some Shortcomings Around Game/Simulation Research

Kapp Notes

Most of the time one group of learners experiences an online game/simulation and one group experiences the same content taught in a classroom and then BOTH groups are given a multiple choice test to see what they have learned. So a study is done with an elearning course that has audio and then the exact same course without audio and then learners are quizzed and test results are compared so the researcher can definitely say if audio impacted learning or not and to what extent.

Experience API

Answer: xAPI allows for learners to be identified by email address, Open ID or an account on some system, such as an LMS. Activity Providers always need to know who a learner is in order to send the LRS data about that learner, which can either be done by having the learner log into the activity provider, or some kind of launch/single-sign-on process. With an LMS, it’s easy to see where learners would go to view their own learning accomplishments.
