How xAPI is Re-Shaping Modern Workplace Learning?

Origin Learning

It was originally a research project that was awarded to Rustici Software by ADL. xAPI is an eLearning specification that makes it possible to collect data about the wide range of experiences a person has within online and offline training activities. To summarize, xAPI enables learning administrators to track offline learning or learning that the learner participates in outside the core LMS/learning platform like mobile apps or games.

It can help you track, store, and communicate learning experiences, both offline and online, in the form of statements. It is a technology specification or standard that enables you to track learning activities, both online and offline, from different platforms in the form of learning experiences. It was done as a part of a research project commissioned by The Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative. Recording offline learning activities.

This project is a first step towards the next generation of SCORM.

As ADL have taken over the cmi5 specification there is a suggestion that this will prompt further evolution. With cmi5, ADL are writing the packaging and structuring specification that xAPI failed to deliver. ADL are taking the best parts of AICC, SCORM and xAPI, and combining them with a new specification to improve tracking for online course delivery and reporting systems. SCORM has long been the most common standard for eLearning content.

Mobile applications: Mobile applications can capture xAPI data offline, store it and then send it to other systems when back online. Store xAPI data offline. Ensure your LRS will work with xAPI by checking to see if it appears on the ADL Conformance Test Suite. As you build your xAPI ecosystem, you’ll likely compile a number of LRSs.

Tin Can API, the evolution of SCORM

Tin Can API , also known as Experience API or xAPI, is generally considered to be the successor to SCORM , and expands the ability of the organizations that use it to gather data about the experiences, both offline and online, experiences that are quantifiable, trackable and shareable. 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.

Speaking of events, ADL has a PlugFest happening in December in Orlando. Still emanating from DevLearn two weeks ago, the buzz about the Experience API is resonating.

5 Ways Tin Can API Revolutionizes eLearning

Bottom-Line Performance

ADL commissioned Rustici Software to develop the specification, which looks to supplant SCORM as the go-to eLearning spec of the 2010′s…and then some. Tin Can API allows for tracking of the informal learning activities, both online and offline, that we are all doing every day… and brings them into the training picture as well. Do these sound familiar? “Brian watches a tutorial on how to fix a problem in Photoshop.”

Traditionally, eLearning content was built with SCORM in mind.

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. It lifts many restrictions that came with previous specifications and can recognize and communicate well with (but not limited to) mobile learning, simulations, virtual worlds, serious games, real-world activities, experiential learning, social learning, offline learning, and collaborative learning.

The standard is developed by the company RUSTICI but ADL is still the steward of the specification, just like SCORM. TinCan also claims improvements on another commonly required but rarely delivered functionality – the ability to complete learning objects offline and synchronize when you get online. Even when not working completely offline people ask for better support for browser timeout and connection drops.

Q&A - eLearning Standards Especially SCORM

Tony Karrer

There are a bunch of other standards by ADL (who is responsible for SCORM ), IMS , IEEE LTSC including CORDRAâ„¢ , LOM , Meta-data , etc. However, as Pierre pointed out in the comments (and I've edited the text here based on his comments - thanks Pierre) - ADL's SCORM really incorporates what we need from these other standards and thus we've not needed to spend effort going into these standards separately.

That we can use web services and describe a consistent (albeit imperfect) approach to handling offline activity and syncing localized activity data back to an LRS… this is a huge advancement beyond what we’ve done with SCORM — even as we acknowledge that it doesn’t replace SCORM.

Answer: There’s four different Open Source LRSs that I’m aware of: Learning Locker , ADL LRS , lxHive and TinMan. Answer: The original version of Experience API was developed by Rustici Software as part of a research project commissioned by ADL. This was later officially named ‘Experience API’ by ADL, but by that point there had been so much excitement and even early adoption of Experience API that the name stuck and we ended up with two names for exactly the same thing.
