Test SCORM Courses with an LMS

Tony Karrer

We are developing a SCORM or AICC compliant course either custom or using an authoring tool. Here are some ideas - SCORM Test Suite One of the best things about SCORM (ADL's Sharable Content Reference Model) is that it is pretty easy to test and diagnose problems. The problem is that there is no guarantee that two SCORM implementations that pass the self-test suite will integrate okay. There is another called SCORM Test Tracker.

What is Tin Can?

A wide range of systems can now securely communicate with a simple vocabulary that captures this stream of activities. ADL (the keepers of SCORM) is the steward of this new specification aka “the next generation of SCORM.”. Up until now, SCORM has been the most widely used elearning standard but it falls short when it comes to capturing the entire picture of elearning.

xAPI, LRS – The Interview

eLearning 24-7

Aaron, can you tell me a little bit about your background and how you became involved with ADL? In 2003, the eLearning startup I worked for shuttered its doors as our customers moved to adopt SCORM, and we had no idea how to do that. Two months after my layoff, a company called CTC recruited me to work for ADL. My job was to help author SCORM 2004, focusing on how to develop content that would work in SCORM systems.

CourseLab – ADL SCORM certified, no less. When I was looking at a LMS/LCMS vendors in the last few years, one of my first questions, “Are you SCORM 2004 or 1.2

Tin Can: My First impressions from mLearnCon 2012

Upside Learning

I attended a session by Aaron Silvers, Community Manager at Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL). Tin Can is not a replacement of SCORM but it’s a whole new API. The focus of SCORM was on the micro data pertaining to a course access by a learner.Tin Can is nothing like this. Tin Can focuses on activity logging to create a personal learning stream which is beyond the boundaries of a learning system within an organization.

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

Experience API

Answer: There’s four different Open Source LRSs that I’m aware of: Learning Locker , ADL LRS , lxHive and TinMan. Another great low (zero) budget option to get started with is a free account in SCORM Cloud. Answer: The original version of Experience API was developed by Rustici Software as part of a research project commissioned by ADL. Rustici Software, ADL and other members of the community continue to work together on the same single specification document.
