Standard Options Apply

MakingBetter

I’m going to lay out options for how we can approach standardization and the reasoning behind them. In August, 2014 I participated in one of the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC) monthly meetings. This particular one was special, as we were formally reviewing the Project Authorization Request (PAR) for the Experience API to become a formal standards project. As the leader of this standards effort, I want to hear what you have to say.

Blended Learning Becoming Standard

LearnDash

Blended learning is on the rise, at least that is what the reports tell us. The use of mobile technology in nearly every facet of life today makes blended learning a natural choice. In fact, ignoring the benefits of today’s tech tools appears to be plain irresponsible. If you are not familiar with blended learning, it is a teaching strategy being used in many educational institutions today, in particular with grade school children, but also at higher education levels.

Are eLearning Standards Necessary?

Integrated Learnings

But I typically argue that eLearning standards are necessary. Even the most cutting edge eLearning out there follows a standard, even if it's a totally new one. By standard I mean a common template and/or a compliance specification such as SCORM or AICC. Standards provide a logical framework for the learner. I'd suggest that they define and follow eLearning standards for the following reasons: Trackability of course completion and scoring. By Jay Lambert.

Mission Critical: Leveraging Learning Engineering to Drive Digital Transformation

Speaker: Trish Uhl, Founder of Owl's Ledge LLC and the Talent & Learning Analytics Leadership Forum

Digital is disrupting every part of an organization's value chain at a record pace, creating a critical need to transform operations and employees' ways of working. Formal training alone can't keep up; it's often too slow, too generic, inconvenient, inefficient, unduly expensive and lacks or lags methods for measuring business-related effectiveness. Trish Uhl show you how to start leveraging Learning Engineering, a multidisciplinary approach that combines modern technology, data analytics, decision science, learning sciences and change management with human-centered engineering design methodologies to ultimately deliver targeted learning outcomes and business results that keep pace with the business and merge learning into the flow of work and lead Digital Adoption.

Setting the Standard for eLearning Assessments

eLearning Brothers

Another key to the continuous improvement of your eLearning experience is the integration of quality assessment standards into the instructional design process. Integrating quality control standards at the instructional design phase is one way that organizations can ensure not just quality, but also consistency and usability in their eLearning experiences. These standards address key areas such as: Course overview and introduction.

User Assistance: Standard Gauge

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

In 21st Century Australia, there isn't a standard national rail gauge. In some states, narrow gauge is used, in others broad gauge, and ironically in just one state, standard gauge. It started well, with a decision by the British Government's Secretary of State for the Colonies that all colonies should adopt standard gauge. Let's think standards, and how standard adoption by an industry can go horribly wrong with enormous, long-term financial consequences.

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? ILT became the gold standard not because it’s perfect (we all know that isn’t true), but because it’s better than other traditional methods of training. 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.

What is the xAPI Standard and Why is it the Future of Learning Technology?

Docebo

Whether in terms of food, music, friends or significant others, we all know standard are important. Thanks to the Aviation Industry Computer-based Training Committee (AICC) , elearning standards have been in place since 1988. In 2000, Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) entered the picture and standardized the way a Learning Management System read and presented learning content. xAPI – Meet the New Standard.

What is the AICC Standard and How is it Relevant to My eLearning Plan?

Docebo

These universal specifications set forth by the AICC soon reached far beyond the aviation community and into the corporate training world, making AICC the first elearning standard in the world. CMI-5 compliance is the successor to AICC, and the good news is that CMI-5 conforms to the newest standard, experience API (xAPI). AICC paved the way for standardizing the interoperability of elearning content.

Virtual reality and augmented reality: overhyped or new industry standard?

CLO Magazine

That’s why I’m betting VR will eventually be a standard part of training like videos are today. The post Virtual reality and augmented reality: overhyped or new industry standard? When you hear the words “virtual reality,” do you feel like you’re in a sci-fi film? I always envision the holograms from Star Trek. Except VR isn’t science fiction anymore. You can already enjoy a wide variety of immersive experiences from the comfort of your couch. But do you?

HTML5: Standardize on MP4 (mostly)

ICS Learning

Now for the next big thing…a standard for support true-streaming video via HTTP! There’s nothing standardized yet but ‘HTTP Live Streaming’ (“HLS”), developed by Apple, seems to have the lead…though there are several potential streaming protocol options integrated with a variety of media servers and end-clients. For now, barring any of those requirements for a given project, we’ll be settling on a general MP4/h.264 standard for our projects in most cases.

HTML5: Standardize on MP4 (mostly)

ICS Learning

The post HTML5: Standardize on MP4 (mostly) appeared first on ICS Learning Group. One of the most significant issues holding back wide deployment of HTML5-compatible video was the disparity of support between browsers. Back in 2011, we opined on the best approach to deliver video online which, at that time, was using Flash. Oh how things have changed. About a year later, we furthered our thoughts on web-delivered video noting how the HTML5 movement had made solid progress.

A developer’s reflection on learning the LTI standard

Rustici Software

I’ve been a developer on the Rustici Engine team at Rustici Software for a little over a year now, and in that time I’ve learned all about various learning standards and how our products support them. Recently, I was tasked with implementing support for a new standard called Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) in Rustici Engine. I knew very little about LTI before this, so I began my journey into learning the standard the way most developers would: by reading the specs.

Nintendo’s Four I Standard

Upside Learning

He mentioned the “Four I’s&# that Nintendo uses as a standard for the games it develops. The reason, I believe, is that it meets the standards we set for all software we develop. We call these standards the Four Is. Makes much sense to me; there is much wisdom for Instructional Designers seeking to design learning games in Nintendo’s 4I’s standard. We must attempt to appropriate and adopt these standards to apply to all eLearning.

Standards and success

Clark Quinn

Apparently, Google has recently opined that the future of mobile is web standards. I’ve been reflecting on the benefits that standards have provided. What worked for networks was the standardization on TCP/IP as a protocol for packet transmission. What worked for email was standardization on the SMTP protocol. HTTP standardization has been good for the web, where it’s been implemented properly! But it’s having standards that matters.
