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? Or are you just confused by all the abbreviations like: SCORM, AICC, XAPI, and CMI5? 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). A course is SCORM compliant when it meets the requirements of the standard set by the ADL.

xAPI Shifting to 3rd Gear

MakingBetter

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. What happened at xAPI Camp Amazon? We got Sean Putman to come in from Detroit to talk about what he all did with Altair’s software and xAPI. Russell Duhon talking about what it takes to run xAPI in Enterprise… at scale.

Think xAPI is Next-Generation SCORM? Think Again

Talented Learning

Anthony is an independent xAPI evangelist and Instructional Developer for the Internet of Things. If you’re an elearning professional, you’ve probably seen or heard the term xAPI countless times. But are you still fuzzy about where SCORM ends and xAPI begins? After years of educating people about xAPI (aka Experience Application Programming Interface ), I find that it is still one of the least-understood concepts in the digital learning world.

Later on the ADL was formed and they wanted a more extended standard, based on the AICC specs. Both the ADL and AICC where working on a new generation of standards.

The Role of xAPI in Creating Powerful Learning Experiences for the Modern Workforce

Origin Learning

From early adopters who used archaic systems to set up a lesson that could be shared on one computer with an instructor to guide employees, to modern workplace learning that’s focused on xAPI -enabled mobile learning; eLearning at the workplace has traveled a long way. SCORM was not enough to track user/learner progress. xAPI or Experience API is the outcome of Project TinCan that started in 2010. Why xAPI Matters? Here’s wherein xAPI plays a crucial role.

Profile Recipes vs. xAPI Profiles

Experience API

What’s the difference between profile recipes and xAPI profiles? A “ profile recipe ” was an early attempt to make it possible for members of the xAPI community to publicly share how they were implementing an information model for a given experience in the hopes that others with a similar experience could use the same model. This is the primary difference between the two, with “xapi-authored-profiles” being more technical. xAPI Profiles.

What is xAPI?

Over the past three years, xAPI has emerged as the hot new standard for delivering online training. xAPI is often described as the next evolution of SCORM. While the SCORM standard isn’t going anywhere soon, xAPI has redefined some of the fundamental practices of tracking learning experiences. But what is xAPI? What is xAPI? The SCORM specification was introduced by ADL in 1999. xAPI is the result of that work. How xAPI works.

Moving and receiving xAPI data in an LRS rich environment

As you build your xAPI ecosystem, you’ll likely compile a number of LRSs. Developing a strategy for moving and receiving xAPI data between LRSs becomes essential, which is why our CEO TJ outlined tactical steps for doing just that during his recent xAPI Cohort presentation. He’s giving a talk on xAPI at DevLearn this Friday, “ xAPI 201: Move from Experimentation to Mastery.” ” Where does xAPI data come from? Send xAPI data.

” Well, my objectives with xAPI were the following: Enable data interoperability across systems. Looking at what Megan and I are implementing with xAPI, I have to call out where, in practice, the tools conforming to the spec aren’t helping with data ownership. There’s a group hosted by ADL that is working towards this. Activity Providers could be a lot more transparent about what interactions they’re capable of tracking.

4 Reasons Tin Can API (xAPI) Is NOT Just a New Version of SCORM

Infopro Learning

For well over a decade the Sharable Content Object Reference Model, or SCORM as it’s affectionately known, has been the standard for tracking eLearning. SCORM reports Meta level data about track completion, time, pass/fail, and a single score. The statement is written in format and can be applied to any type of learning, such as “I read InfoPro’s description on xAPI”. ADL provides an overview ( [link]. tracking-analysis/experience-api/. )

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

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). Let’s talk about the background of SCORM and xAPI for a minute. With xAPI, you can track experiences like: • Mobile learning.

Traditional vendors are largely adopting at the SCORM parity level and using Tin Can as a better way to track formal training programs. I think we mostly know how to track informal learning with Tin Can now, but there is still a long way to go in making useful information out of all that data. Tracking should be opt-in when possible. When asking a question about compliance training, we will outfit the compliance violation tracking system to notify us when violations occur.

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. The ability to track learning, critical to a Learning Management System (which really is a Course Management System), requires knowing who has done what, and how well. From web activity streams, people started thinking about tracking other forms of activity.
