Choosing Mobile Learning Solutions Using Standards

JCA Solutions

Once mobile devices started to become popular the promise of being able to have everything on our devices, including learning programs, was right on the heels. It would have to be installed on the mobile device but would allow for offline work. That would provide the ability to keep records offline if necessary and sync when possible. We did not create this, it is a proof of concept created by Advanced Distributed Learning ( ADL ) and made freely available.

And in a way to address them, the SCORM model was created as part of the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative. Also, SCORM compliant online training courses are built, with integration with JS API (JavaScript Application Programming Interface).

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

ProProfs

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.

Tin Can API & the Future of E-Learning

Learnnovators

Here is a quick re-cap on this learning standard, before we take a closer look at some of the use cases: Experience API is a new (and evolving) e-learning specification that makes it possible to collect data about the wide range of learning experiences a person goes through (both online and offline). This standard is being developed by Rustici Software (with a world-wide active community participating and contributing) for Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) – the keepers of SCORM.

Building the Next Generation of SCORM

Integrated Learnings

Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) is leading the effort for the next generation of SCORM. Ability to handle offline and long-running content. New programming standards have emerged that allow more flexibility in how SCORM can be implemented. by Jonathan Shoaf. Last Thursday was the kick off of project Tin Can. While project Tin Can has been championed by Rustici software for years now, it is speeding up activity to produce a 1.0

Reflections on DevLearn’s xAPI Hyperdrive

MakingBetter

Now leveraging xAPI to improve teacher education through National Louis University , it’s exciting to see the practical impact the technology has in pulling credible evidence from what’s happening in the field into the digital space where competence can be tracked, allowing the program to scale the professional development of these teachers. Speaking of events, ADL has a PlugFest happening in December in Orlando.

Objectives: Course or learning objectives define the knowledge or skills learners are expected to gain from a training program. Training professionals are now often required to demonstrate the ROI of learning programs and software to leadership teams. SCORM (Shareable Content Object Reference Model): A set of standards developed by Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) and applied when developing LMS content. Last week, we decoded tongue-twisting eLearning terms from A-L.

What is SCORM? xAPI? TinCan? AICC? A review of the LMS acronyms

Ed App

SCORM is short for ‘Sharable Content Object Reference Model’ and was first created by the US government’s Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) project in 2000 as a de-facto standard for eLearning content. . The ‘API’ in the name is an acronym for ‘Application Programming Interface’.

The Mobile eLearning Express: A Brief History of Distance Courses

eLearning Brothers

Distance education programs did get their start relying on mail correspondence and still do today, for example, in rural Alaska and Australia. This valuable business data can be harnessed to reach mobile learners and increase business training and academic programs. The power of this data could target custom high school education programs to meet the needs of at-risk student’s to improve retention and decrease the high school dropout rate. ADL Mobile Learning Handbook.

TinCan Demystified

The standard is developed by the company RUSTICI but ADL is still the steward of the specification, just like SCORM. A nice side-effect of the messaging system is that any enabled device or program can send Tin Can API statements (mobile phones, simulations, games, real world activities etc.). 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.

The What, How and Why of xAPI in Corporate Learning

WhatFix

who serves as the Director of the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative, aptly put it ‘xAPI helps us put the puzzle together’. No need for constant network connectivity : Even if the learners complete their training offline, it doesn’t matter. MedStar Health, a Washington-based healthcare provider, was imparting a ‘Code Blue’ training program to equip staff in case of emergencies. Do you need the e-learning tracking solution to function both offline and online?

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. Well, it’s largely down to something called an Application Programming Interface (API). This can track and capture our online and offline activities. Is it finally time for SCORM, the specification superstar of the noughties, to move over for modern learning technology? Here’s the case for making the change to xAPI, LRS and cm15.

ADL (Advanced Distributed Learning). API (Application Programming Interface). API provides an interface that allows developers to interact with programs and applications, including learning management systems. Often paired with an LMS, this software is used to develop content for online learning and training programs. A certificate confirms that a learner has successfully completed a training program to a predefined standard.
