Learning System Forecasts 2019

eLearning 24-7

Who would have guessed that VR would be on wobbly ground in the corporate learning space for the majority of verticals? Who would have seen that Amazon is working on a commercial LMS, which based on the background of the person running Learning Products, doesn’t really point towards an LMS like you know the term actually means (I’ll get to that shortly)? Based on some exploration, it is clear to me they have a couple of routes to go in terms of the system.

Course Standards: Where R We Heading?

eLearning 24-7

There has been a lot of information out there , okay, I’m kidding there hasn’t been much of anything when it comes to course standards. I’ll readily admit that regardless of the course standard you use, if you create click-click-click courses, than no course standard will make it engaging. Yet here we are wondering where the course standard industry is heading or at least presumed to be heading. “They are not Compliance Standards.”

xAPI: Why Should I Care and What Could It Do for Me?

Meridian

In the training world, we were introduced to SCORM from an initiative that arose in 1999, led by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) and Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL). The purpose of the initiative was to develop a standard for eLearning that would meet the needs of both federal and private sectors to replace AICC and correct previous problems. It took a few years and by the mid-2000s, SCORM had become the de facto standard for all eLearning content.

Keeping eLearning standards grounded in the rapidly-changing world of web browsers

Rustici Software

As learning standards experts here at Rustici Software , we know that the standards like SCORM, xAPI, cmi5, and AICC by and large remain constant and unchanged year over year. Despite their rock-solid foundation in the eLearning space, the environments in which the standards operate—web browsers—are wildly dynamic, always being developed, and that poses challenges for eLearning professionals. Web browsers and eLearning standards.

Simple Anatomy of SCORM-based E-Learning

Integrated Learnings

I was a software developer working on a quizzing product that needed to export data to a variety of e-learning systems. So I researched but quickly got lost in the minutia of details and acronyms -- AICC, CMI, SCO, XML, ECMAScript, manifest, packaging, and API. But most people producing e-learning content can rest assured that they don't need to know these details. Learning Content. Learning Content. Integrated Learning Services, Inc.

I love Questionmark, its a wonderful product and it can use a “connector” to integrate into your learning platform or system. Greater increase in the number of learning management systems offering quiz/assessment tools.
