Standard Options Apply

MakingBetter

I’m going to lay out options for how we can approach standardization and the reasoning behind them. In August, 2014 I participated in one of the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC) monthly meetings. This particular one was special, as we were formally reviewing the Project Authorization Request (PAR) for the Experience API to become a formal standards project. As the leader of this standards effort, I want to hear what you have to say.

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

These universal specifications set forth by the AICC soon reached far beyond the aviation community and into the corporate training world, making AICC the first elearning standard in the world. AICC paved the way for standardizing the interoperability of elearning content.

At the dawn of the video recording age, a battle raged about the best standard to use: VHS or Betamax. In it, Sony came out with a better standard, but kept it to themselves. Meanwhile, JVC’s VHS standard wasn’t quite as good, but they openly licensed it. Learning Standards.

Track and trace Learners results. What do SCORM compliance, AICC, XAPI and CMI5 mean?

Challenge to Learn

Do you want to buy a LMS or an authoring tool and are you wondering what the best option is for tracking the results of your learners? SCORM is a standard in e-Learning that makes it possible to track and trace the results of your learners in a Learning Management system (LMS).

CMI-5 and XAPI (Tin Can API), Bill McDonald , Kris Rockwell It took me a while to figure the meaning of TinCan and I understood the impact it can have on our learning community, but I never understood why we have two competing standards (Scorm and AICC), and now there is a new standard emerging CMI-5 based on TinCan. The AICC developed in the early 1990 the AICC standard. Later on the ADL was formed and they wanted a more extended standard, based on the AICC specs.

Q&A - eLearning Standards Especially SCORM

Tony Karrer

You want to implement your courseware to the SCORM standard if you plan to have it launched and/or tracked under an LMS. SCORM is a fairly easy standard to deal with especially since most people are fine with a single SCO that does only single score/completion reporting. One case is building a one-off course that needs simple tracking/reporting and will never run under an LMS. In these cases, I'm not tracking and likely it's not under the LMS.

Mike Rustici – Crystal Balling with Learnnovators

ABOUT MIKE RUSTICI (President, Rustici Software): In 2002, Mike Rustici founded Rustici Software to help Learning Management Systems and e-learning content creators work well with each other using the SCORM standard. How do you think this learning standard will disrupt the traditional thinking of ‘learning’? . Traditional vendors are largely adopting at the SCORM parity level and using Tin Can as a better way to track formal training programs.

They do a project for the ADL to investigate what the next version of SCORM should look like. SCORM is the standard of the e-Learning industry and now and then we say less nice things about it, but it is our guarantee (most of the times) that content from our authoring systems will actually run in most LMS, and that the learners progress and results are tracked and reported. Today I was interviewed by Ben Clarck from Rustici software.

Tin Can API & the Future of E-Learning

Learnnovators

Most discussions revolve around the technical aspects related to the definition and implementation of the standard, which is crucial at this stage of its evolution. However, ‘Experience API’ is ADL’s official name for this standard.

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. Since we started working with standards in 2003, we’ve been active within the community and try to build software that spares customers having to deal with the standards. ADL’s guiding hand.

How xAPI is Re-Shaping Modern Workplace Learning?

I’m thinking in particular of those who work to advance our standards. The initial learning technology standards came out from the AICC. The Department of Defense’s ADL initiative decided upon a version, to move things forward, and thus was born SCORM.

TinCan Demystified

eFront

TinCan is heavily promoted as the successor of SCORM and was designed to fix many things that were lacking on the previous standard. The standard is developed by the company RUSTICI but ADL is still the steward of the specification, just like SCORM. The standard doesn’t touch on how you go about translating those messages into something useful. Compared to TinCan, SCORM was a very complex standard. eLearning Learning Open Source SCORM standards tin-can tincan

Why the Experience API (xAPI) Is Crucial to Your eLearning Success

Trivantis

The Experience API (xAPI) is an updated standard for tracking eLearning; it shows a more complete picture of your learners’ activity than SCORM does. xAPI was created by Rustici Software to replace SCORM (an earlier set of technical standards for eLearning software products).

Between November 2014’s xAPI Hyperdrive and the xAPI track at DevLearn 2014, we hit our stride. We had people well outside of the ADL bubble talking about real world things things they were using xAPI to accomplish. You might be surprised to find out we’re in 2nd gear.

Now that we’re providing you even more options for exporting content, we thought it was important to outline the differences between SCORM and LTI, so you can select the eLearning standard that is right for you. To put it simply, the main difference between LTI and SCORM is that LTI is focused on connecting learning systems, whereas SCORM is focused on launching training content and tracking interactions. LTI is focused on connecting learning systems in a standard way.

There have been a lot of changes in internet technology over those years, as well as, many changes in how professional learning is administered and tracked. Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) is leading the effort for the next generation of SCORM.

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. Both SCORM and Tin Can API allow track completion; track time; track pass/fail; and report a single score.

There’s no way to track learner activity in games, so I can’t use it. If an activity is happening outside of the LMS, learner activity could not be tracked. That means games pose the same danger in learning as standardized tests do for children in school.
