Flash Player will no longer be supported after December 2020.


Also, major browser vendors are integrating these open standards into their browsers and deprecating most other plug-ins (like Flash Player). And the Flash player will be reduced to a vestigial application on your computer. Does not require any proprietary player to run it.

LTDX Q&As: Fitting standards in a learning ecosystem

Rustici Software

In a flexible learning ecosystem, what is the relationship between xAPI and SSO? xAPI is the standard used to track and capture activity from the systems users are accessing. Related to xAPI, SSO is going to play the role of identifying the learner or “Actor” in the xAPI statement.

Webinar Q&A: Empowering Continuous Learning with the Experience API (xAPI)

Experience API

Questions: What is the common identifier that allows the xAPI to connect the data provided by the ‘activity provider’ to a specific user in the LRS? Answer: xAPI allows for learners to be identified by email address, Open ID or an account on some system, such as an LMS. How do you best see xAPI interfacing with an LMS? Which LMS platforms out there today best interface with xAPI? That’s one of the big advantages of xAPI, *anything* can make a statement.

The ongoing work of learning standards


You could use any of the many authoring tools, such as Authorware, but you needed an appropriate player. With the advent of Flash, many authoring tools started creating output that could be played by the Flash player, which meant you didn’t need special software to use the courses (if your IT org would support you having it). They wanted a standard, took a plausible set of standards from the work, and called it the Standard Courseware Object Reference Model (SCORM).

Course Standards: Where R We Heading?

eLearning 24-7

Will xAPI be the one standard that is “the” standard? CMI-5 is the new player in town (I’ll get to that in a bit). But SCORM is still a dominant player out there and to assume that it is resting in a nice funeral plot or will be, I think is jumping way ahead. Look at how many people haven’t jumped over to xAPI – and that has been around for a few years. . How many vendors do you know that haven’t yet implemented xAPI?

SCORM vs AICC: how do they compare?


SCORM stands for Shareable Content Object Reference Model. What about xAPI? xAPI (also known as Tin Can) is a much newer set of standards (developed in 2011) that aimed to significantly improve elearning standardization. xAPI is a step up from SCORM in terms of what it offers.


Back to basics: What is SCORM?


SCORM stands for Shareable Content Object Reference Model. In the same way that DVDs are created in a standardized way so they can be read by any DVD player, SCORM sets out the standardized set-up that means elearning can be read by any LMS.

Bottom-Line Performance

Responsive Player: Did you get excited when I said “responsive”? While a responsive player is heavily touted addition to Storyline 360, in reality, the player leaves developers a little wanting. In a nutshell, the responsive player provides a minimalist UI around your course with a hamburger menu on small devices. Sometimes the responsive player ends up being a bit of a miss. Have you ever watched Bob Ross paint, amazed by how the piece is taking shape?

HTML5 – The Force Awakens


Does not require any proprietary player to run it. It is the present reference for content creation that has the potential to drive and unify cross-platform learning content production. We are already seeing html5 on wearables and powering the use of xAPI and gamification. Train yourself to let go of everything that you fear to lose – Yoda. We have had a more than a year of HTML5 now. And this is happening right now…not in some galaxy far far away. Instant gratification.

SCORM – When you need Inter-Operatibility between E-learning Platforms!


What is it about SCORM ( Shareable Content Object Reference Model ) that the e-learning folks are going gaga over? Imagine owning a stockpile of DVDs, but not a DVD player. Now, the DVD player that we seek should be able to play all types of DVDs single-handedly, isn’t it? Otherwise, we’d need one DVD player each that would jibe with only one type of DVD. Tin Can API / Experience API / xAPI – Decoding the Buzzwords!


E-learning: A simpler approach, please?


SCORM stands for shareable content object reference model, and is a model that was all about creating units of online training material that could be shared across systems. . Likewise, you cannot get detailed analytics unless you know xAPI, which is again another coding skill.


What is SCORM & Decoding Its Importance For eLearning


SCORM is an acronym that stands for “Sharable Content Object Reference Model”. It bears great resemblance to a DVD that works across any player. While many would argue that it needs a bit of facelift, you may be wondering – what’s the future of SCORM when its advanced version Experience API, better known as xAPI or Tin Can API, is already creating waves in the elearning domain? xAPI is built on SCORM.

It may refer to smartphones, tablets, laptops or all the above. SCORM = Sharable Content Object Reference Model. When you buy a new movie on DVD you don’t need to check to see if it works with your brand of DVD player. They would need to make differently formatted DVDs for each brand of DVD player. Talent development refers to the function within a business to hone and improve the skills of its employees. xAPI = Application Programming Interface.

SCORM Compliance and Tin Can Api


Imagine owning lots of DVDs but not having a player capable of playing them. In the case of elearning, SCORM is like the DVD player, without which you wouldn’t be able to play your movies. The Shareable Content Object Reference Model – more commonly known as SCORM – is a set of very technical standards and specifications used for web-based elearning.

Standard adoption takes time (as we can see with xAPI), so if you are concerned or worried about having to go with CMI-5, etc. 1 xAPI. I as many folks constantly referred to xAPI as Tin Can, but recently say in the past month, I found out that Tin Can was a trademarked name by Rustici Software. As such, I will go with the proper term of xAPI (now and going forward). In 2015, I do expect to see an increase in the number of vendors implementing xAPI.

Vacillation. It is quite a strong word, and one that I admit I have thought about the past few weeks.

Making the Case for Adaptive Learning

CLO Magazine

Before going any further, a mention of Experience API — more commonly referred to as Tin Can, or xAPI — would be appropriate. The xAPI was created to store and provide portability for learning experiences. With xAPI statements the ability to capture more data than previous standards like AICC and SCORM is certainly possible, but the reality is it was never created to be a learning measurement tool.

They do not have on their radar, xAPI nor on/off synch for mobile – I was told the usual garbage line that their customers haven’t asked for it, nor have people reaching out to them.

As a first assessment of cloud-based LMS software, I think it gives a good sense of the biggest players currently on the market and how they stack up to each other. Two big trends are Extended Enterprise Training and xAPI. Extended enterprise refers to LMSs which are now set up with capabilities to train people outside of the company, including stakeholders, other vendors, and even consumers.

The sharable content object reference model (SCORM) is a software standard that governs how course files communicate or report information to learning management systems. Not yet in wide use, it’s still wise to learn about XAPI to make sure you’re ready to stay on top of emerging technology. In addition, OpenSesame has developed a SCORM video player that converts any video files to SCORM-trackable elearning courses.
