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).

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.

When the ADL was told to create a useful standard for eLearning in the late 90s, there were a lot of different groups who were using electronic means to teach: notably the Army, Navy and Coast Guard. SCORM was birthed in the late 90s, which means there are a lot of versions of it out there.

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?

Difference between SCORM and AICC; benefits

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.

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.

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.

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.

Top 5 tips on how to make courses SCORM compliant

Saffron Interactive

Choose your SCORM version. ADL, the maker of SCORM, has released two main versions over the years: SCORM 1.2, Both these versions allow you to store data on your LMS but SCORM 2004 has a more advanced structure which makes it easier (in theory) to share course units between courses. So make sure you check which version your LMS supports. Download the ADL Self Certification Test Suite and run your course through it before testing on an LMS.

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.

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.
