Standard Options Apply

MakingBetter

This post is for vendors, developers and implementers of the Experience API and for anyone who may one day create something with xAPI. The choices made soon will ultimately impact what you will be able to do with xAPI 3, 5 and 20 years from now. I’m going to lay out options for how we can approach standardization and the reasoning behind them. In August, 2014 I participated in one of the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC) monthly meetings.

Choosing Mobile Learning Solutions Using Standards

JCA Solutions

Using Standards Separately or Together for Effective Mobile Learning. Now, thanks to new learning standards, and new ways of using older ones, that promise may be here. New Standards May Provide the Answer. Then came Experience API (xAPI) and CMI5. Let’s look at how we can use our standards for learning in the mobile world. Standards to Advance Mobile Learning. Using xAPI for mobile learning gives you some options. SCORM and xAPI.

The ongoing work of learning standards

Litmos

At the dawn of the video recording age, a battle raged about the best standard to use: VHS or Betamax. In it, Sony came out with a better standard, but kept it to themselves. Meanwhile, JVC’s VHS standard wasn’t quite as good, but they openly licensed it. As Stephen Johnson tells us, in his book Where Good Ideas Come From , the openness of standards fosters innovation. . Standards provide several benefits. Learning Standards.

Webinar Q&A: Empowering Continuous Learning with the Experience API (xAPI)

Experience API

Questions: What is the common identifier that allows the xAPI to connect the data provided by the ‘activity provider’ to a specific user in the LRS? Answer: xAPI allows for learners to be identified by email address, Open ID or an account on some system, such as an LMS. How do you best see xAPI interfacing with an LMS? Which LMS platforms out there today best interface with xAPI? That’s one of the big advantages of xAPI, *anything* can make a statement.

Taking cmi5 adoption further by developing a Conformance Test Suite

Rustici Software

For the last 18 years, some of the most important work we’ve done at Rustici Software has been the standards-based efforts we’ve worked on with the Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative (ADL). Over the years, our folks have participated in the working groups for, and the development of, standards as ubiquitous as SCORM, as forgotten as RTWS, and more recently xAPI.

Improved Player UI. We’ve continued to enhance the design and layout of the new SCORM Engine Player UI, which we released in Engine 2016.1. See the difference in Engine player’s functionality on Zendesk. xAPI Conformance. ADL officially released the xAPI Conformance Test Suite and (Good news!) Engine is xAPI conformant. In particular, we have made significant changes to the Engine player UI to more easily cooperate with screen readers.

Technology discussed in this session: A variety of web-based multi-player games showcased on mobile/tablets/kiosks. Why xAPI? or Why Should I Care About xAPI? How the Experience API (xAPI) is an enabler. Technology discussed in this session: Experience API (xAPI), games, simulations, and HTML5. Michael is also a former researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). How can orientation be standardized without losing its impact?

What is SCORM & Decoding Its Importance For eLearning

ProProfs

It is a set of technical standards that were mainly developed for supporting elearning tools. In a nutshell, SCORM is a standard that is responsible for ensuring that the instructional content will link with and appear appropriately within the LMS tool when both are SCORM compliant. In 1999, the United States Department of Defense thought of standardizing the elearning production. They came up with the Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative (ADL) and created the SCORM.

Top 10 LMS Forecasts for 2015

One of the most interesting items which presents to me an unknown variable is CMI-5, a compliance standard (formally with AICC) now headed up by ADL. I agree it will be the next generation of a compliance standard, but I do not see it having major impact in 2015. Standard adoption takes time (as we can see with xAPI), so if you are concerned or worried about having to go with CMI-5, etc. 1 xAPI.
