Courseware LMSs – Good or bad for the industry?

eLearning 24-7

The Courseware LMS Approach – Early days and today. When courseware LMSs first started showing up back in the day, it was just about the courses. . First off, there are vendors out there who pitch they are an LMS when in reality they are a courseware provider that has some type of learning platform.

Are eLearning Standards Necessary?

Integrated Learnings

By standard I mean a common template and/or a compliance specification such as SCORM or AICC. Do you need to control learner access to courseware, track learner progress, or monitor the effectiveness of your eLearning content? The company does want the ability to track course completion and assessment scores.'. All of the above said, you might not need a standard if you are rolling out single courses that don't need to match a curriculum or be tracked.

The ongoing work of learning standards

Litmos

Looking for systematicity, the aviation industry created a subcommittee to develop standards for Computer Based Training: the Aviation Industry CBT Committee (AICC). They wanted a standard, took a plausible set of standards from the work, and called it the Standard Courseware Object Reference Model (SCORM). 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.

The rise of mLearning has also driven adoption of the Tin Can xAPI eLearning content standard which can track far more learning activities than older standards like SCORM. Responsive design is essential for software and courseware intended for use on mobile devices. SCORM defines how online learning content speaks to, and tracks results back to, an LMS. Once a specification has been recognized by an official body, it becomes a standard, like AICC , SCORM or Tin Can xAPI.

SCORM vs Tin Can API: The difference between compact discs and iTunes

ProProfs

At some point in the past, eLearning standards were built for facilitating interoperability between content and LMS; now with SCORM and especially Tin Can API, it’s about tracking learning experiences as much as it is about interoperability. With SCORM, importing content from one LMS to another and tracking course data became a seamless and hassle-free process. With SCORM, you could not track this as learning data, which was part of your course.

Here's the evidence:  Four leading courseware development tools have adopted the specification, putting the creation of xAPI statements within reach of the average elearning instructional designer/developer. They each provide a basic level of page and interaction tracking via xAPI, with DominKnow and Lectora offering even more flexibility around the creation of activity statements.

Interoperability: Here’s what we have trained our sales force to respond: “UpsideLMS can work with third party courseware which is compliant with SCORM 1.2 or AICC or SCORM 2004 (without sequencing and navigation controls). In case of AICC there may, sometimes, be some additional work we would need to do. In case a course is not compliant with these, then we need at least one HTML file to launch the course with tracking limited to open and nothing else”.

The first official eLearning content standard, AICC was developed by the Aviation Industry CBT Committee in 1993 as a CD-ROM based standard. A predecessor to SCORM, AICC was difficult to work with and many steps were required to get content in the format running in a learning management system (LMS). A cloud-based LMS is a web-based platform that helps companies to deliver, track, and report on eLearning. Popular eLearning content standards include SCORM, xAPI, and AICC.

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. One case is building a one-off course that needs simple tracking/reporting and will never run under an LMS. If you won't ever need to run it under an LMS, then SCORM is overhead you don't need (see Tracking Without an LMS ). In these cases, I'm not tracking and likely it's not under the LMS.
