Standard Options Apply

MakingBetter

I’m going to lay out options for how we can approach standardization and the reasoning behind them. 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. As the leader of this standards effort, I want to hear what you have to say.

The ongoing work of learning standards

Litmos

At the dawn of the video recording age, a battle raged about the best standard to use: VHS or Betamax. In it, Sony came out with a better standard, but kept it to themselves. Meanwhile, JVC’s VHS standard wasn’t quite as good, but they openly licensed it. As Stephen Johnson tells us, in his book Where Good Ideas Come From , the openness of standards fosters innovation. . Standards provide several benefits. Learning Standards.

Four Emerging Technologies that L&D Leaders Need to Consider

Bottom-Line Performance

It’s been “emerging” since 2008… and still only a handful of organizations are using it in a meaningful way. As smart cars emerge, and hands-free becomes the norm, I think CLOs may want to engage in new discussions of how to best use an employee’s “windshield time” (a term coined in the 1980s to describe the time sales reps spend behind the wheels of their cars traveling to customer sites).

ILT…Is It Still the Gold Standard?

Your Training Edge

In the training world, we often refer to instructor-led-training (ILT) as the gold standard. Is it time we had a new gold standard? ILT became the gold standard not because it’s perfect (we all know that isn’t true), but because it’s better than other traditional methods of training. Enter “Technology-Enabled-Learning” MOOCs as the new Gold Standard. A gold standard should both reflect best practices and produce the best results, and not just in theory.

Standards and success

Clark Quinn

Apparently, Google has recently opined that the future of mobile is web standards. I’ve been reflecting on the benefits that standards have provided. What worked for networks was the standardization on TCP/IP as a protocol for packet transmission. What worked for email was standardization on the SMTP protocol. HTTP standardization has been good for the web, where it’s been implemented properly! But it’s having standards that matters.

Similarly, law enforcement officers can de-escalate life-threatening situations or react to emergencies virtually. Then, they won’t be panicking in a real-life emergency. That’s why I’m betting VR will eventually be a standard part of training like videos are today.

Emerging Asynchronous Conversation Models

Tony Karrer

I had an interesting conversation with Patrick Randolph from TalkWheel about different kinds of asynchronous conversation models that are emerging and how they might fit into broader eLearning Initiatives. The standard model for asynchronous conversations is discussion forum software like vBulletin. There are some new tools emerging that have a different take. All of these point to new types of conversation models that are emerging in tools.

New training priorities emerge through eLearning. BDaily contributor Rachel Rowling recently gave her view of the ways eLearning plans can fail to live up to standards and offered hints on how to avoid those outcomes. The entire process of training enterprise employees is shifting. While the idea of educating employees once evoked makeshift classrooms and whole days given over to programs, eLearning solutions have opened up new scheduling and format options.

Direction of eLearning - Emergence or Big System

Tony Karrer

I ran across a post by Dave Boggs - More Standards In e-Learning? that pointed me to some presentations at alt-i 2 -lab 2006 that look at where the eLearning interoperability standards are going in the future. This is an interesting topic because it highlights a schism that is echoed in the larger world of IT: Enterprise IT (Big Systems) vs. Emergence (see Enterprise 2.0 and emergence ). The idea of Emergence is somewhat simple.

Is it time to replace SCORM? A Look at Emerging Learning Technologies

SCORM solved this headache by providing a standard software specification that worked across all learning technology. cmi5 is the standard specification for creating xAPI compliant LMSs. A Look at Emerging Learning Technologies appeared first on Growth Engineering. Is it finally time for SCORM, the specification superstar of the noughties, to move over for modern learning technology? Here’s the case for making the change to xAPI, LRS and cm15.

New tools are emerging that promise to overcome key content availability issues without requiring organizations to abandon or replace existing learning systems. As we all know, SCORM has been around for quite a long time as a data standard. A standard is a standard, and for content to work, a learning management system must communicate with a piece of content in a very specific way. In other words, you get all the standard SCORM data you need to run your business.
