2017 eLearning Predictions: Updated Hype Curve

Web Courseworks

IMS Caliper: Caliper is the latest standard from IMS. A newer standard than even xAPI, Caliper is somewhat less ambitious than xAPI in the number of use cases considered and APIs specified. As Martin is one of the xAPI originators, this could foreshadow future synergies between the two standards and help xAPI get out of the Trough (see below). CHEST-Web Courseworks xAPI pilot. xAPI: We are big believers in xAPI.

The ongoing work of learning standards

Litmos

Consider the internet; developments on top of the TCP/IP protocol like SMTP and HTML allowed a variety of tools to work together to bring us email and the world wide web. And then the IMS (an initiative of Educause before being spun out as an independent effort) started creating standards, as did the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), the major body in the US responsible for computing standards. So, does xAPI replace SCORM? .

Real (e)Learning Heroes

Clark Quinn

Several other initiatives include IEEE (which is pretty much the US based effort on electric and electronic technology standards to the international stage), and the IMS efforts from academia. As a better example, look how the WWW standard on top of the internet standards has enabled things like, well, this blog! Other initiatives include xAPI, sponsored by ADL to address gaps in SCORM.

The CMI5 is a profile for blending the xAPI specification with the learning management system. It involves a set of rules for xAPI which narrow the ‘umbrella’ or extensive specification to enhance its adoption rate in the industry.

Watch: What Is xAPI (Experience API) aka Tin Can API – Features and Benefits Explained. Tin Can LMS systems are independent of web browsers since this standard can work without an internet connection. Blackboard Learn is a SCORM and xAPI-compliant LMS.

The Ultimate Glossary of eLearning Terms

LearnUpon

From Agile to xAPI and everything in between, there are a lot of eLearning terms to get your head around. Notable contributions include SCORM and xAPI. An eLearning content authoring tool is a software package which content developers use to create and package eLearning course content using SCORM or xAPI standards. This is a “profile” for using the xAPI specification with learning management systems. HTTP is the foundation of communicating data over the internet.

If you need to create materials from scratch (rather than the upload of pre-existing materials such as documents, video, audio, SCORM or xAPI), you should choose an LMS and an authoring tool or an LCMS. A Learning Record Store is a data storage system that serves as a repository for learning records necessary for using xAPI statements. Learning Tools Interoperability is a standard created by the IMS Global Learning Consortium.
