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.

Simple Anatomy of SCORM-based E-Learning

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.

“One small step for e-learning technology, One giant leap for the e-learning industry.” Tin Can API (or ‘Experience API’) is one of the most extensively discussed technical topics amongst learning professionals all over the world today. This is mainly because of the relevance it carries in today’s world of ‘Learning Transformation’. However, ‘Experience API’ is ADL’s official name for this standard.

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.

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?

SCORM is a set of technical standards for e-Learning software products. It tells programmers how to write their code so that it works well with other e-learning software. Specifically, SCORM governs how online learning content and Learning Management Systems (LMSs) communicate with each other.

Think of learning experiences as an ocean of puzzle pieces scattered everywhere. who serves as the Director of the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative, aptly put it ‘xAPI helps us put the puzzle together’. This attempt to routinely piece together the individual’s ‘learning puzzle’ is key to a more intuitive and agile future of learning.
