Package & track elearning: why companies need both AICC & xAPI

Docebo

Companies and organizations involved in elearning need learning content to be compliant with some requirements, i.e. with regards to the way content is packaged and tracked within the training program. AICC and xAPI (Experience API, or formerly Tin Can) are among the most important standards: whilst AICC has been around for a while, the xAPI is relatively recent. So why is AICC still important for elearning adopters? xAPI and new analytics scenarios.

SCORM vs AICC: how do they compare?

Elucidat

Another set of standards that has the same aim is AICC. SCORM is much more widely used today, but that doesn’t mean we can forget about AICC entirely. What is AICC? AICC stands for Aviation Industry CBT (Computer-Based Training) Committee. AICC talks to the LMS by sending HTTP messages and then interpreting the responses the LMS sends back.

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

Meridian

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. Fast forward 20 years, and we are seeing the beginnings of a sea of change being led by xAPI. xAPI, like SCORM before it, started from a DoD and ADL 2011 initiative. Two years later, the xAPI 1.0 xAPI is a learning answer to this problem and provides many capabilities beyond SCORM.

eLearning: xAPI is Geek Free and Ready to Go

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Megan Torrance      In my  previous xAPI article  I pointed to the emergence of "geek-free tools and platforms" as the hallmark that xAPI is beginning to achieve main-stream status.   In the 1960s, Dr. Bruce Tuckman proposed a team development model that lends some structure to the conversation about xAPI.   In the early Forming and Storming days of xAPI, there were no off-the-shelf tools that supported it.

eLearning Course Standards–AICC, SCORM, and xAPI. The three most common types are AICC, SCORM, and xAPI. So you might have an eLearning course that was created to match the AICC standard, or the SCORM standard, or the xAPI standard. AICC is an older standard and its developer is no longer supporting it. And xAPI is a newer standard. And that is not to say that there aren’t some companies using xAPI courses, because they are.

eLearning Standards—What They Are and Why They Matter

Trivantis

It all started with the Aviation Industry Computer-Based Training Committee (AICC), which was formed in 1988. The aircraft industry has always had a high need for training and certification, and prior to 1988, this led to a variety of incompatible and closed system training programs that had unique hardware and software requirements. In 1993, the AICC created the CMI specification—still in use today—which specified the communications between a course and an LMS.
