Choosing Mobile Learning Solutions Using Standards

JCA Solutions

With a wider variety of ways we could deliver learning experiences, combined with the desire to support and track performance, things had to change. That could lead to some SCORM tracking issues. It would have to be installed on the mobile device but would allow for offline work.

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.

SCORM was not enough to track user/learner progress. It was originally a research project that was awarded to Rustici Software by ADL. It was originally a research project that was awarded to Rustici Software by ADL. xAPI ensures that informal learning is tracked.

Moving and receiving xAPI data in an LRS rich environment

Experience API

LMSs: LMSs are used to play and track eLearning content and can often allow users to analyze the data they play. 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.

What is Cmi5? A new set of rules for xAPI

Ben Clark of Rustici Software has described how cmi5 augments xAPI as follows: “xAPI is wide open, there’s so much this standard can do that people don’t know what to expect out of it and they don’t know how to track certain things consistently.

What is Tin Can?

The Tin Can API is a brand new learning technology specification that opens up an entire world of experiences (online and offline). Mobile learning, simulations, virtual worlds, serious games, real-world activities, experiential learning, social learning, offline learning, and collaborative learning are just some of the things that can now be recognized and communicated well with the Tin Can API.

While the SCORM standard isn’t going anywhere soon, xAPI has redefined some of the fundamental practices of tracking learning experiences. The SCORM specification was introduced by ADL in 1999. The major difference between xAPI and SCORM content is the type of learning each can track.

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.

Building the Next Generation of SCORM

Integrated Learnings

There have been a lot of changes in internet technology over those years, as well as, many changes in how professional learning is administered and tracked. Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) is leading the effort for the next generation of SCORM. Ability to handle offline and long-running content. The data tracked by existing specifications is not exposed to developers in a standard way and requires LMS expertise to access. by Jonathan Shoaf.

5 Ways Tin Can API Revolutionizes eLearning

Bottom-Line Performance

With the Tin Can API, all of these experiences can be tracked and accounted for. 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. We can track more details than ever before.

Q&A - eLearning Standards Especially SCORM

Tony Karrer

You want to implement your courseware to the SCORM standard if you plan to have it launched and/or tracked under an LMS. One case is building a one-off course that needs simple tracking/reporting and will never run under an LMS. If you won't ever need to run it under an LMS, then SCORM is overhead you don't need (see Tracking Without an LMS ). In these cases, I'm not tracking and likely it's not under the LMS.

TinCan Demystified

eFront

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.

SCORM won the hearts of L&D folk everywhere, when it was invented by the ADL in 2000. SCORM is no longer up to the job because its ability to track learners’ behaviour, preferences and interests is limited. Limited Tracking Functions.

Tin Can vs. SCORM: What’s It All About?

KZO Innovations

Tin Can (or the Experience API), the successor to SCORM, is an e-Learning software specification that allows learning content and learning systems to speak to each other in a manner that records and tracks all types of learning experiences. 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.

You can think of an LRS as “the part of the LMS that implements xAPI and that tracks learning activity”. Answer: There’s four different Open Source LRSs that I’m aware of: Learning Locker , ADL LRS , lxHive and TinMan. For the Bookmarket, how is the person tracked.

The rise of mLearning has also driven adoption of the Tin Can xAPI eLearning content standard which can track far more learning activities than older standards like SCORM. SCORM defines how online learning content speaks to, and tracks results back to, an LMS.

In response to their concerns about “tracking,” which rightly furrows eyebrows and adds wrinkles prematurely to us all, a suggestion that gained momentum was that we consider breaking up xAPI into three separate standards efforts — three different documents to be linked together. They may be justifiably squeamish about tracking. This post is for vendors, developers and implementers of the Experience API and for anyone who may one day create something with xAPI.

To give you an example, the free version is ADL SCORM 2004 certified (many commercial paid ones are not). Online/Offline synch comes with the tool – a requirement for any RCAT that offers m-learning IMO, especially one where people build courses. Very nice set of features including multi-track editing, ability to publish not just to YouTube but also Vimeo, picture in picture and audio scrubbing.
