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. Centralizing eLearning content across systems. One of the more difficult areas that the DoD and other federal government agencies face is from having a variety of LMSs and training systems to meet the specific needs of each department. We heard from iFest attendees that it can be challenging to manage courses across all the intra-agency systems.

xAPI: Why Should I Care and What Could It Do for Me?

Meridian

In the training world, we were introduced to SCORM from an initiative that arose in 1999, led by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) and Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL). xAPI, like SCORM before it, started from a DoD and ADL 2011 initiative. xAPI is a learning answer to this problem and provides many capabilities beyond SCORM. We are now truly part of the whole of our experiences, and not alone in our self-paced learning.

Simple Anatomy of SCORM-based E-Learning

Integrated Learnings

I was a software developer working on a quizzing product that needed to export data to a variety of e-learning systems. On top of that, I found out about the ADL initiative and the Department of Defense involvement in the specification. But most people producing e-learning content can rest assured that they don't need to know these details. You just need to know that e-learning content sometimes needs to be exported to SCORM so that it can be used in an LMS.

SCORM vs. LTI: what’s the difference?

Rustici Software

To put it simply, the main difference between LTI and SCORM is that LTI is focused on connecting learning systems, whereas SCORM is focused on launching training content and tracking interactions. LTI is focused on connecting learning systems in a standard way. It stands for Learning Tools Interoperability and it is a standard created by the IMS Global Learning Consortium. Governance: LTI is created and maintained by IMS; SCORM by ADL.

Moving and receiving xAPI data in an LRS rich environment

Experience API

xAPI data can come from: Non-launched learning experiences : activities that happen outside of a browser. Launched learning content : traditional eLearning courses, usually via an LMS. eLearning systems : other learning systems like a next-gen learning platform. Plenty of systems may send and receive xAPI data, including LMSs, analytics tools, gamification platforms, LRSs, mobile apps or VR/AR platforms. What is the pipe for connecting systems?

Tin Can API: What It Has in Store for Online Learning Environments

ProProfs

In a traditional classroom-based teaching and learning environment, the only time you get to assess the knowledge of each learner is at the end of tests and examinations. This method is not conducive to the holistic development of learners as it doesn’t show the whole picture of the learning activity. What you need is a data-driven learning & development (L&D) process and that’s where Tin Can API steps in. Recording offline learning activities.

The Role of xAPI in Creating Powerful Learning Experiences for the Modern Workforce

eLearning as a training medium to foster learning at the workplace has been in existence for over two decades now. From early adopters who used archaic systems to set up a lesson that could be shared on one computer with an instructor to guide employees, to modern workplace learning that’s focused on xAPI -enabled mobile learning; eLearning at the workplace has traveled a long way. It was originally a research project that was awarded to Rustici Software by ADL.
