Building the Next Generation of SCORM

Integrated Learnings

This project is a first step towards the next generation of SCORM. As one of the most widely used versions of SCORM , the SCORM 1.2 Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) is leading the effort for the next generation of SCORM. Based on feedback from the community of practitioners, the next generation of SCORM will address some of the following industry issues: Ability to handle distributed content (that is not a part of an LMS).

SCORM and xAPI LMS in a Learning Culture

The Performance Improvement Blog

I recently attended an “xAPI Party” at Torrance Learning where the conversation was about the shift from a SCORM -based LMS to an xAPI (experience application programming interface) LMS. Steve Foreman, in an article for Learning Solutions Magazine , describes XAPI this way: The xAPI operates based on activity streams, a model that uses software to track things people do.

Test SCORM Courses with an LMS

We are developing a SCORM or AICC compliant course either custom or using an authoring tool. Here are some ideas - SCORM Test Suite One of the best things about SCORM (ADL's Sharable Content Reference Model) is that it is pretty easy to test and diagnose problems. The problem is that there is no guarantee that two SCORM implementations that pass the self-test suite will integrate okay. If it doesn't work out, then you can say - "Well it works with the SCORM test suite.

What underlies Tin Can is the recognition that not all workplace learning happens within the boundaries of a SCORM-compliant LMS.
