The added value of SCORM

 

SCORM can be of great value to professionals working in the field of e-learning. But not everyone knows what it is or how it can be used. With 2019 only a few weeks away, it is time for a small refresher on SCORM and its benefits.

A quick intro to SCORM

 


You’ve probably heard of the benefits of SCORM but maybe you’re not quite sure what it’s all about. Here’s a quick guide to what this powerful tool is and how it can work to improve your organization’s e-learning operations.

SCORM versus xAPI, cmi5 and AICC

 


Since it is a “reference model” rather than an individual standard, SCORM is designed to overarch various existing specifications. Some refer to SCORM as a “best of breed” solution because it incorporates the best features of other common specifications, providing far greater flexibility for sharing content across systems. Let’s look at how SCORM compares with or relates to some other common specs and standards out there today.

How xAPI is changing learning as we know it

 

As learning becomes increasingly digitized, the need for a reliable interoperability standard and specification has never been so great. Enter Experience API (xAPI) – the standard that’s quickly occupying the space once held by SCORM. With xAPI, Project TinCan is creating a firm foundation for the future of e-learning. Now, professionals in the fields of HR, L&D and education have the option of capturing previously unthinkable volumes of data, along with highly effective analytics options that firmly connect learning with business outcomes. Let’s look at some of the ways in which this incredible new technology will continue to shake up e-learning in 2019 and beyond.

SCORM vs XAPI

To date it is still the standard for result tracking, but the latest version of SCORM (2004) is already more than a decade old. The world of eLearning has seen a lot of changes since then, from mobile learning to gamification, the world of eLearning is rapidly changing. So the question on everyone’s mind, is SCORM still the only option? The answer: no, we now have XAPI (formerly known as TinCan)

SCORM 1.2 and SCORM 2004

For many people it can be confusing, but there are actually two versions of SCORM available on the market: SCORM 1.2 and SCORM 2004, but what is the difference? The answer to that question can be found in the three changes that the newest version (2004) brings to the table:

Tracking and tracing of your Learners results

Looking for an LMS or an authoring tool, but not sure on your options regarding the tracking and tracing of your leaners results? Here is a short overview of the different options that will help you decide what it is you are looking for in your new tool.

What is SCORM-compliant?

For many companies who are new to e-learning, it can be difficult to decide if you want to build SCORM-compliant courses and run them in a learning management system (LMS) or if you should look at other options. Some might not even know what SCORM is or what it does. With the rise of Experience Application Programming Interface (xAPI) and other methods, SCORM is not the only option out there anymore.

cmi5: What it is and why you need it

Just when you thought e-learning tech couldn’t get any more sophisticated – think again! xAPI is already changing the way many of us approach learning, giving unprecedented insight by tracking informal learning. That means we can now capture learner’s activities even outside the LMS. We’ve never had such a full picture of the learner experience.
