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. This force is realized in two ways: ADL funds research of a specific type, with specific organizations, which causes things to happen to the eLearning standards. This money from ADL provided incentive, and ADL’s guidance provided direction.

Q&A - eLearning Standards Especially SCORM

Tony Karrer

Most of the time, it's to handle cross-domain issues, i.e., learning content is on different server than learning management. There are a bunch of other standards by ADL (who is responsible for SCORM ), IMS , IEEE LTSC including CORDRAâ„¢ , LOM , Meta-data , etc. Note: ARIADNE, AICC, IEEE LTSC, and IMS all participate in ADL's work on SCORM). Now that I posted about Better Questions for Learning Professionals , I've been receiving questions via email from a variety of people.

Answer: There’s four different Open Source LRSs that I’m aware of: Learning Locker , ADL LRS , lxHive and TinMan. Answer: The original version of Experience API was developed by Rustici Software as part of a research project commissioned by ADL. This was later officially named ‘Experience API’ by ADL, but by that point there had been so much excitement and even early adoption of Experience API that the name stuck and we ended up with two names for exactly the same thing.
