xAPI’s Tipping Point for Both Community & Industry

MakingBetter

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. Organizations interested in counting on xAPI for their business needs must have a way to know the tools work. As well, people using these tools should be recognizable as a professional class that reliably works with xAPI.

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.

In August, 2014 I participated in one of the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC) monthly meetings. This particular one was special, as we were formally reviewing the Project Authorization Request (PAR) for the Experience API to become a formal standards project. The PAR wasn’t approved by the LTSC in that August meeting. WiFi ” is essentially a set of IEEE standards — its project number is 802.11.

My job was to help author SCORM 2004, focusing on how to develop content that would work in SCORM systems. 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” ADL, IEEE and many people and businesses talking about this technology call it xAPI. Tin Can” is a trademarked name owned by Rustici Software.
