Is Tin Can API Lipstick on the SCORM Pig?

Living in Learning

Last week [October 25th] I had the distinct privilege of sitting in on the Tin Can API break-out session that was presented by Aaron Silvers of ADL. I’m not sure of his exact title, but his role was in a leadership capacity on the Tin Can API project.

Given ADL was also the birth mother of SCORM, I walked in and sat down with a preconception or two that this was SCORM in a new dress.

It’s Still About People Since It’s Still About Change

Ontuitive

I am an advocate for performance support. It just makes sense, (even if the term itself is a bit confusing and not very exciting.) But as with all technology-enabled learning solutions that have crossed my path over the past 35+ years, the most critical success factor is not the technology at all. It is the people who will use and support the use of this stuff: the workers (unfortunately referred to as ‘end-users’) and their managers.

New Providers of Data Collection and Analysis of Online Job Ads in Real-Time May be Helping Community Colleges Create Better Curricula

Training Industry

A new term was recently added to my lexicon: “real-time labor market data.” It came from research I am conducting about how community colleges work at building courses and programs that align with employers’ demands and the needs of regional economies. A subset of this research is the argument that our nation’s community colleges are not educating students to meet labor-market demands. One answer is that they can’t identify the true nature of those demands.
