Responding to recent ADL funding news

Experience API

I’ve spent a lot of time over the last couple of weeks learning about some things that are happening with ADL (the governing body for SCORM and closest thing we currently have to a single steward for xAPI right now). Some funding things happened at ADL, but ADL will continue to do work on xAPI and with the xAPI community. Now the long version. ADL’s funding has been reduced substantially in the short-term. I think ADL’s done a great job of this over time.

Day 2 @LSCON, Nice keynote and I finally understand TinCan, Experience API, Scorm, ADL, IACC and CMI-5…….

Challenge to Learn

Later on the ADL was formed and they wanted a more extended standard, based on the AICC specs. So the ADL developed Scorm in a different (technical) way and we ended up with two standards. Both the ADL and AICC where working on a new generation of standards. ADL announced TinCan (version one will be out shortly) and the AICC worked on CMI-5. Day 2 of the conference. I started the day with the keynote session, before the keynote some announcements were made.

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

Infopro Learning

ADL provides an overview ( [link]. The post 4 Reasons Tin Can API (xAPI) Is NOT Just a New Version of SCORM appeared first on. 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 is established and trusted but limited, which has given rise to a new standard, Experience API or Tin Can API (The name depends on who you ask, but refers to the same thing).

Being part of the DoD, ADL is considering how to provide soldiers on the battlefield with the information they need at the precise moment of need, thus increasing their performance in the field and saving lives. At the recent ADL Plugfest event, we identified creating “recipes” of best practices for statement structures as one the essential next steps for the community.

Choosing Mobile Learning Solutions Using Standards

JCA Solutions

Many mobile-compatible LMS’s are overcoming this by creating native application versions of their LMS interface. We did not create this, it is a proof of concept created by Advanced Distributed Learning ( ADL ) and made freely available. First you will want to create a free account on ADL’s sample Learning Record Store (LRS). To see the results after you install it and test it, use the ADL Statement Viewer.

SCORM was developed by ADL, an US Government initiative. ADL (Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative) developed SCORM in the 90s to solve interoperability issued for Computer Based Training (CBT) across multiple delivery systems. The existing versions of SCORM are. SCORM 1.1 – this was the first version of the SCORM and is not widely used. SCORM 1.2 – It is supported by nearly all LMS and majority of content providers create on this version. What is SCORM?

Real (e)Learning Heroes

Clark Quinn

The Department of Defense’s ADL initiative decided upon a version, to move things forward, and thus was born SCORM. And if not, there’s always the ADL to wield the ‘800 lb gorilla’ argument. Other initiatives include xAPI, sponsored by ADL to address gaps in SCORM. While there are people who claim to be leaders in elearning (and some are), there is another whole group who flies under the radar.

Why DoDI 1322.26 is important for the Experience API (xAPI)

Experience API

This Instruction replaces the 2006 version of DoDI 1322.26, “Development, Management, and Delivery of Distributed Learning,” which mandated (as opposed to advised) the use of SCORM in all eLearning technology used by the DoD. We are excited because this is the culmination of a lot of work for many people at both ADL and Rustici Software. In 2015, we at Rustici were awarded a BAA from ADL to help them revise the 2006 DoDI 1322.26.

Experience (Tin Can) API: What to Expect from Your LMS Provider

Bottom-Line Performance

ADL, or Advanced Distributive Learning , is the government agency behind the spec. One example given by ADL is a “bookmarklet” that can be installed on a web browser and be used to track informal activities such as web pages visited. These are currently stand-alone products, but ADL predicts they will eventually be integrated right into LMS’s. Experience API reached version 1.0 Tin Can. Experience. TIN CAN! Experience! We’re all hearing about it… but what is it?

What’s the best SCORM compliant LMS to choose in 2020?

Elucidat

Ask yourself the following questions: Which SCORM versions do I need and are they supported? There are several versions of SCORM, from SCORM 1.0 When choosing which version you want your LMS to support, you’ll need to consider which features you want from it, and which standard your elearning is built to. You can find out more about the different versions of SCORM in this timeline of elearning standards. ADL is the governing body for SCORM.

And in a way to address them, the SCORM model was created as part of the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative. Furthermore, there exist three known versions of SCORM, and they include SCORM 1.1, Well, that’s not the case for the latest version of SCORM 2004.

How To Choose A SCORM Compliant LMS For Your e-Learning Content

On the other hand, SCORM certified LMS ensures that a specific product under discussion gets certified by SCORM governing body, ADL. The first checklist to choose a SCORM compliant LMS is checking to know if the LMS gets supports from ADL. What version of SCORM is/are supported and which is preferred. Even though an LMS can support all versions of SCORM, there’s still a chance for preference. Image by Arek Socha from Pixabay.

eLearning Standards—What They Are and Why They Matter

Trivantis

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. In 2001, the first production version of the new standard was released, and was known as the Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) 1.1.

The Community Responds

MakingBetter

The current specification group in ADL is a logical group to do the splitting of the specification as it exists today, rather than IEEE which has less representation of the people who developed and have implemented Version 1.0 I hoped in my last post that the community would indeed respond with ideas, insights, opinions and concerns. Thank you for your comments on the post, the retweets and feedback on Twitter and for what I’m sure has been a lot of not-public rumination.

Think xAPI is Next-Generation SCORM? Think Again

Talented Learning

But that does not mean xAPI is a next-generation version of SCORM (aka Sharable Content Object Reference Model ). Rewind briefly to a day in 2010, when the dew was still fresh and early morning sun filled the meeting room at Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL). Instead, the team at ADL actually paved the way for the Actively Narrating Technical Interface-Sharable Content Object Reference Model – otherwise known as the ANTI-SCORM.

Semantic Interoperability

Experience API

There’s a strong possibility that collaborative work between ADL and IMS could help a great deal. Not only is there a profile in our Registry , there’s also a Community of Practice still working on a version. If there are multiple working versions of what data to capture, then how is a reporting system attempting to derive meaning about “video” supposed to do so? We think ADL could assert an information model.

Aaron, can you tell me a little bit about your background and how you became involved with ADL? Two months after my layoff, a company called CTC recruited me to work for ADL. I worked with ADL from 2003-2006 and participated in the Technical Working Group afterwards. This work informed the conversations with several current and former ADL friends. Project Tin Can” was the name Rustici Software came up with to describe the work ADL contracted them to do.

Since its day of release, 4 different SCORM versions have seen the light of the day. There are many versions of SCORM in use today. version of SCORM is widely used even today and is supported by most of the LMS platforms. SCORM 2004 is another majorly used version, which is slowly getting superseded by Tin Can. So, normally it is ADL (Advanced Distributed Learning – a research group) that handles all the aspects related to SCORM.

SCORM vs. LTI: what’s the difference?

Rustici Software

SCORM stands for Shareable Content Object Reference Model and it was developed, and is now managed, by Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative (ADL) to support the Department of Defense. There are technically five versions of SCORM : SCORM 1.1, All of the different versions of SCORM govern the same two things: packaging content and exchanging data at Run-Time. Governance: LTI is created and maintained by IMS; SCORM by ADL.

Three Reasons its Time for Our Platforms to Evolve

Training Industry

There have been multiple versions of both, but they haven’t expanded much to meet the growth of technology over time. This is why the collaboration announced recently between ADL and AICC on Tin Can is such a huge deal. Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) has been supporting the community in building out the Tin Can API specification. When you take a step back, it’s a little funny that so many people are talking about standards in learning technology right now.

I’ll begin with the Tin Can API, also known as xAPI, officially released as version 1.0 Pitched as the “true next generation of SCORM”, ADL have taken over the cmi5 specification (which suggests it will evolve!).

A course is SCORM compliant when it meets the requirements of the standard set by the ADL. Yes there are two version of SCORM: SCORM 1.2 The latest version is SCORM 2004 but both are still in use. In fact the oldest version (SCORM 1.2) The latest version of SCORM dates back from 2004 (although there where updates).
