The ongoing work of learning standards

Litmos

The Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative of the Department of Defense finally had enough. The ADL provided compliance testing, so that content and systems could be validated for interoperability. ADL decided to create a new standard, the Experience API (xAPI; originally known as Tin Can). An API is an Application Programming Interface, and what it specifically provides is a way for an application to make its data available to others.

Answers: How Do I Get Started With xAPI?

MakingBetter

That’s pretty darn impressive considering the impact on other programs and agencies in US Government alone, and that it’s seen so much adoption. The information the US Department of Defense (via ADL) has available on the Experience API , and the larger Training & Learning Architecture of which xAPI is a part, broadly paints the picture of the research and development that is being performed now and into the foreseeable future, much of which will find its way to standardization.

With Gratitude…

xAPI is so successful that it’s actually becoming a challenge for ADL to support it to the scale it now demands. The Design Cohort program that began in 2013 became so well attended and populated that it couldn’t be supported by ADL anymore — they just don’t have the resources to do it on their own. When SCORM was being created, it was an epoch ago for information and instructional technology, and ADL had over 40 engineers they could apply to SCORM alone.

The aircraft industry has always had a high need for training and certification, and prior to 1988, this led to a variety of incompatible and closed system training programs that had unique hardware and software requirements. The AICC was dissolved in 2014, and all of its efforts have been transferred to the Department of Defense’s (DOD) Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) group. In 1997, the DOD established the ADL Initiative to standardize and modernize training.

The quality of the content determines the success of your virtual training programs. Use an ADL-conformant Learning Record Store (LRS)+. Inside an LMS the user experience is greatly increased, this is due not only to a high degree of personalization for administrators and users but also to the intuitive design and artificial intelligence features that LMS platforms use to deliver programs of virtual education much more intuitive, effective and successful incomes.
