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. Another alternative would be performance tracking or real time evaluation tool. That would provide the ability to keep records offline if necessary and sync when possible.

What is Tin Can?

eFront

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.

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.

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. It actually transcends eLearning…tracking activities we once thought weren’t trackable. We can track more details than ever before. Do these sound familiar?

Difference between SCORM and AICC; benefits

For example, what that means is AICC compliant e-learning courses can be hosted, tracked, and accessed on LMS platforms that are compliant with AICC. And in a way to address them, the SCORM model was created as part of the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative.

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.

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. The Brothers Donnelly are using Zapier and Watershed to track Slack conversations and Github commits, which they correlate to learning that happens via SCORM Cloud.

SCORM vs. Tin Can xAPI: A simple guide to everything you need to know

Plume - e-learning & learning management systems

Since the beginning of learning management systems (LMS), SCORM has been recognised as the industry-standard model for progress tracking in online courses. Experience API, or Tin-can as it was originally known, is a protocol for tracking learning-related activity. It can also integrate with other platforms recording and tracking data from Sales CRMs, offline assessments and CMS, giving you insights into training efficacy and employee performance.

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. And even though the new standard does have more rules and provides more structure, instructional designers still have a wide open field to track whatever they want to.”. SCORM has long been the most common standard for eLearning content.

TIN CAN API & THE FUTURE OF E-LEARNING

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.

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. Rustici chose the name project name “Tin Can” to describe the two-way conversations the technology would track as it made it easier for learning systems to communicate with each other. The major difference between xAPI and SCORM content is the type of learning each can track.

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.

TinCan Demystified

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.

There are several weaknesses to AICC as a technical standard, as you would expect from a standard of this age: No Course Tracking.

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.

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. It can track learner progress and completion of online content. The difficulties arise when we want to track all the other informal learning that happens when the formal course ends.

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.
