Standard Options Apply

MakingBetter

I’m going to lay out options for how we can approach standardization and the reasoning behind them.

As the leader of this standards effort, I want to hear what you have to say.

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. .

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?

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.

HTML5: Standardize on MP4 (mostly)

ICS Learning

One of the most significant issues holding back wide deployment of HTML5-compatible video was the disparity of support between browsers. Now for the next big thing…a standard for support true-streaming video via HTTP!

Course Standards: Where R We Heading?

There has been a lot of information out there , okay, I’m kidding there hasn’t been much of anything when it comes to course standards.

Q&A - eLearning Standards Especially SCORM

Tony Karrer

You want to implement your courseware to the SCORM standard if you plan to have it launched and/or tracked under an LMS. SCORM is a fairly easy standard to deal with especially since most people are fine with a single SCO that does only single score/completion reporting. What about other Standards?
