4 Reasons Why SCORM Is Dying And How You Will Survive!

Sharable Content Object Reference Model, or simply just SCORM, is dying a slow death. In fact, the only reason why it’s still used is because administrators of Learning Management Systems have been doing so since the very beginning. And so they have just accepted it as the standard. But wait a minute; let’s take a step back.

Implementation Of The Experience API Within The SOFAD Author Environment

This experimentation was conducted in the course of the regular activities of GTN-Québec, with the technical support of the SOFAD IT team. The purpose of the experimentation is to make recommendations available to the education community on the implementation of this new standard in the online learning field. The following lines briefly present the approach taken for implementation of the xAPI specification within our author environment. We first explain why we decided to design our own plugin (SOFAD/author). We describe the limitations we encountered with SCORM. We show how the implementation of xAPI in our authoring environment allowed us to solve the limitations encountered with SCORM. We identify some possible issues and constraints with this new standard. Finally, we propose some recommendations.

SCORM and Tin Can API: The difference between DVDs and Netflix

The language used in learning management systems fundamentally changes the way we measure, track, analyze and understand learning in the modern workspace. Between SCORM and the Tin Can API, currently known as the Experience API, we're looking at two similar languages that perform tasks very differently. Think about the way Netflix not only changed the way people watch movies, but how the company keeps track of how we watch movies. Based on the choices we make, the streaming video service can provide suggestions based on our viewing histories, potentially giving us the most relevant entertainment options. Gone are the days when we had to make a trip to the now defunct Blockbuster - or a similar rental location - where we chose what to watch based on availability and a number of outside influences, as well as personal taste. In all of your experiences visiting a video store, when do you remember getting a recommendation from a store clerk that matched your preferences, wants or needs? The Sharable Content Object Reference Model is the foundation for how learning management systems have worked for the past 15 years, but the Tin Can API is the logical progression from this point.
