Track and trace Learners results. What do SCORM compliance, AICC, XAPI and CMI5 mean?

Challenge to Learn

Do you want to buy a LMS or an authoring tool and are you wondering what the best option is for tracking the results of your learners? SCORM is a standard in e-Learning that makes it possible to track and trace the results of your learners in a Learning Management system (LMS).

Challenge to Learn

They have all spent 10.000 hours learning their craft. What makes people learn? You learn when you have to struggle. When you present someone with all complete crystal clear information, they will not learn. Making mistakes will make you learn, you need to push yourself to the limits, forcing mistakes. When you correct your mistakes they will trigger your brain into learning. Ruthlessly eliminate passive learning. Day 2 of the conference.
