IMS Global Learning Consortium: Interoperability Standards for Education by Bill Brandon

xAPI, LMSs, and LRSs came about because of attention from government and corporate organizations. The IMS Global Learning Consortium provides guidance and support for. Learning Systems Management Measurement Training Strategies Interoperability is a major concern as platforms and technologies for learning proliferate.

Day 5: xAPI and more – what next for SCORM?

LearnUpon

On day one of our series, we learned that AICC (Aviation Industry Computer-Based-Training Committee) can be considered the first eLearning standard, used to track how learners progress through course content. Funnily enough, Tin Can (xAPI) , which we’ll examine next, adopts a similar approach to AICC regarding the HACP and, as a result, can track data across domains, or indeed, almost anywhere. eLearning now: Tin Can (xAPI).

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.

Semantic Interoperability

Experience API

Because without semantic interoperability, the Experience API (xAPI) has a limited future. For us, semantic interoperability in xAPI will be achieved when there is a generally accepted information model. There’s a strong possibility that collaborative work between ADL and IMS could help a great deal. xAPI, on the other hand, is fundamentally a communication protocol applied as a specification for elearning.

The ongoing work of learning standards

Litmos

Looking for systematicity, the aviation industry created a subcommittee to develop standards for Computer Based Training: the Aviation Industry CBT Committee (AICC). 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? .

3 reasons your LMS should be LTI-compliant

Rustici Software

If you’re building a new learning/training platform and LTI isn’t on your roadmap or you’re still weighing the value, here are 3 reasons why your LMS should become an LTI tool consumer. See all of the IMS-certified LTI tools here.

Real (e)Learning Heroes

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. Other initiatives include xAPI, sponsored by ADL to address gaps in SCORM. Ongoing is the ICICLE work on establishing principles for ‘learning engineering’, and IBSTPI for training, performance, and instruction.

SCORM vs. LTI: what’s the difference?

Rustici Software

If you’ve been familiar with Rustici Software for a long time, you’ll know we’ve helped people for a long time with SCORM and xAPI. To put it simply, the main difference between LTI and SCORM is that LTI is focused on connecting learning systems, whereas SCORM is focused on launching training content and tracking interactions. It stands for Learning Tools Interoperability and it is a standard created by the IMS Global Learning Consortium.

What is a Learning Management System? (2019 Update)

Docebo

Learning management systems are used to deploy a variety of learning strategies across different formats, including formal, experiential and social learning to manage functions such as compliance training, certification management and sales enablement. Learners: They’re on the receiving end of learning initiatives (after all, they are to whom training programs are intended). Customer Training : Another common LMS use case is for organizations to provide training to customers.

After a survey with my marketing, sales, and custom training services teams, I can identify what were most frequently identified as 2017 trends. We see a trend to design and deliver training apps for smaller, mobile devices as a compliment to primary learning activities. Those future trends include Spontaneous Learning Systems (SLS), Intelligent Mentoring Systems (IMS), and highly personalized learning services. People have been talking about training on phones for years.
