The 'learner' fallacy - delusions of influence in L&D

Stop worrying about millennials and boomers and start worrying about learner preferences.

SCORM vs. LTI: what’s the difference?

Rustici Software

It stands for Learning Tools Interoperability and it is a standard created by the IMS Global Learning Consortium. With LTI, a learner logs into an LMS (what is referred to as an “LTI tool consumer”) and typically selects a resource link to play a course. This file contains all the information needed by the LMS for it to import and launch (or play) the content without the learner doing a single thing. Governance: LTI is created and maintained by IMS; SCORM by ADL.

They provide the ability to connect with other learners who are trying to learn a language. People find each other using the site and then connect via chat, IM, voice/Skype, etc. italki is an interesting website in the language learning space - which seems to be very busy these days.

So is a scenario simulation where you can easily change the content, learner actions and their consequences - building multiple scenarios without coding. When working with pre-built IMs, your focus is on selecting the right IM, customizing it using your content, and finally adding it to your course. The larger the library of pre-built IM's you have access to, the wider your choice, and the more you are likely to find one that exactly fits your need.
