xAPI’s Tipping Point for Both Community & Industry


Since last year, I worked with IEEE to standardize the Experience API (xAPI) specification. Most of my work is with the IEEE-LTSC but recently a few other IEEE standards groups expressed interest in using xAPI. Meanwhile different needs among xAPI adopters in the learning technology business are becoming clearer. Organizations interested in counting on xAPI for their business needs must have a way to know the tools work.

Q&A - eLearning Standards Especially SCORM

Tony Karrer

Here's a recent one to get me started: Is it mandatory to use SCORM while developing an E-learning Software? There are a bunch of other standards by ADL (who is responsible for SCORM ), IMS , IEEE LTSC including CORDRAâ„¢ , LOM , Meta-data , etc. Note: ARIADNE, AICC, IEEE LTSC, and IMS all participate in ADL's work on SCORM). There are also standards such as WebDAV that are going to be important for authoring tool implementations in the next few years.

xAPI, LRS – The Interview

eLearning 24-7

My job was to help author SCORM 2004, focusing on how to develop content that would work in SCORM systems. I worked with business analysts, IT and communications teams on governance for these new technologies. Project Tin Can” was the name Rustici Software came up with to describe the work ADL contracted them to do. They reviewed almost 100 white papers authored for LETSI, who in 2007-2008 was looking at what a “SCORM 2.0” I was told xAPI is in IEEE’s hands?
