Choosing Mobile Learning Solutions Using Standards

JCA Solutions

Then came Experience API (xAPI) and CMI5. But they have been able to afford to do that because of the features of HTML5, many of which make the Flash player obsolete. Using xAPI for mobile learning gives you some options. Since with xAPI we would not be tied to just “Bill passed this course and got 85%” it opens us up to the full spectrum. If by app, you build the xAPI hooks into it. SCORM and xAPI.

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.

You could use any of the many authoring tools, such as Authorware, but you needed an appropriate player. With the advent of Flash, many authoring tools started creating output that could be played by the Flash player, which meant you didn’t need special software to use the courses (if your IT org would support you having it). The Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative of the Department of Defense finally had enough. So, does xAPI replace SCORM? .

What is SCORM & Decoding Its Importance For eLearning

ProProfs

They came up with the Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative (ADL) and created the SCORM. It bears great resemblance to a DVD that works across any player. While many would argue that it needs a bit of facelift, you may be wondering – what’s the future of SCORM when its advanced version Experience API, better known as xAPI or Tin Can API, is already creating waves in the elearning domain? xAPI is built on SCORM.

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. 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. I as many folks constantly referred to xAPI as Tin Can, but recently say in the past month, I found out that Tin Can was a trademarked name by Rustici Software.
