What is the plan for DISC, xAPI, and ADL?


Towards the end of last year, our big announcement was the formation of the not-for-profit Consortium formed to handle the governance and address the evolution of xAPI with/for ADL. doesn’t require ADL’s permission for us to do this. All the same, ADL’s done an amazing job stewarding xAPI through its R&D roots to now and to whatever degree we can work in concert with ADL (and US DoD, by extension) it’s to our collective benefit to do so.

Is Tin Can API Lipstick on the SCORM Pig?

Living in Learning

Last week [October 25th] I had the distinct privilege of sitting in on the Tin Can API break-out session that was presented by Aaron Silvers of ADL. I’m not sure of his exact title, but his role was in a leadership capacity on the Tin Can API project. Given ADL was also the birth mother of SCORM, I walked in and sat down with a preconception or two that this was SCORM in a new dress.


#LSCON 2012: trends

Challenge to Learn

The good news is that the new SCORM standard (based on project TinCan) will actually make this possible. I believe this trend is emerging and again project TinCan will play a big role. But again there is project TinCan, it will be the new Scorm standard. LSCON 12: Trends.

Part One: How We Decide to Do Work

Experience API

A couple of days ago, I wrote about the state of ADL and Rustici Software’s take on it. ADL’s guiding hand. For most of the last 15 years, ADL has been the primary organizing force in the corporate elearning standards space. And to ADL, would you approve of that?

Answers: How Do I Get Started With xAPI?


The Experience API is the largest and most successful Open Government effort in terms of the number of people truly outside of government contributing to it (like… not even contractors) and the 4th largest Open Government project overall. ADL Sample LRS. Getting Started.

With Gratitude…


Our projects ranged from designing and developing custom reporting for software products, training providers and large enterprises. We know projects are already being planned for the beginning of 2016 at a scale that equals the whole of xAPI adoption in 2015.

What is the AICC Standard and How is it Relevant to My eLearning Plan?


When the AICC disbanded, they transferred the CMI-5 project to the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative to ensure continued access to all of your training content. The AICC is dissolved, but having an LMS that supports AICC is still crucial.

From BAA to DoDI

Rustici Software

Two years ago we answered a BAA from ADL to conduct research for updating the DoDI 1322.26- “Development, Management, and Delivery of Distributed Learning.”. Spoiler Alert – ADL accepted our proposal and we were awarded a contract to dig further into what an updated Instruction might look like and how it might be implemented. It means a lot to us that the work we did with ADL, PIPS, the DADLAC and others within the community has come to fruition. Acronym Alert!

Transitioning from SCORM to xAPI

Web Courseworks

I wish I could tell you that there’s an easy fix or a mere change in settings when you export your project from your favorite SCORM authoring tool. I asked Andy Johnson of the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative for his take on the issue as a leading expert in xAPI.


eLearning Standards—What They Are and Why They Matter


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.

xAPI Shifting to 3rd Gear


We had people well outside of the ADL bubble talking about real world things things they were using xAPI to accomplish. Participants got into the weeds of learning architecture, project management and scaling the technology to respond to growing organizational demands in near real-time.

An insider view of xAPI adoption figures from Rustici

Bearing in mind that the figures come from Rustici’s own ecosystem and could be said to be not fully ‘out there in the wild’ (though it does involve real customers and projects), xAPI adoption rates are doubling every year in terms of xAPI packages uploaded to SCORM Cloud.

Slow Cooking – Our First Year of MakingBetter


When we first launched MakingBetter on January 7, 2014, it was with the intent that we’d mostly focus our efforts on a few small projects and workshops while beginning standardization work on xAPI with IEEE-LTSC. We had some great projects ( oxygen) working with great people ( fuel).
