  • 1. Learning Management Systems and e-Learning Standards
  • 2. LMS and e-Learning Standards Topics • What really makes up an LMS? – ASTD definition of LMS – Technologies used in an LMS • Demonstrations of LMSs – GGLMS – ILIAS – SCORM Cloud • E-Learning Standards in your LMS – AICC, SCORM, xAPI (TinCan) – Development and testing – Deploying content to learners • Purchse and Deployment Models – Cloud-based (SaaS), Open Source, Commercial (paid/proprietory)
  • 3. What really makes up an LMS? LMS (learning management system): Software that automates the administration of training. The LMS registers users, tracks courses in a catalog, records data from learners; and provides reports to management. An LMS is typically designed to handle courses by multiple publishers and providers. It usually doesn't include its own authoring capabilities; instead, it focuses on managing courses created by a variety of other sources. - ASTD • Database - Where the data goes. • Server -Where the courses live and the application runs from. • Application / programming language - Produces the features and functions of the LMS. • e-Learning Standard(s) - communication bridge between the course and the database. • An LMS is basically a software system that stores web files and tracks learner progress, though those files, in a database.
  • 4. What really makes up an LMS? • All LMSs have: – – – – – – Library of courses Learners Status reports A way to assign learners to a course A way to create a learner profile A way to upload and / or create a course
  • 5. Demonstration of LMSs GGLMS ILIAS SCORM Cloud • URL: docs.gglms.com • Type: Closed source • Developer: JCA Solutions • URL: www.ilias.de • Type: Open source • Developer: ILIAS open source eLearning Society • URL: cloud.scorm.com • Type: Closed source • Rustici Software
  • 6. E-Learning Standards in Your LMS AICC SCORM 1.2 & 2004 xAPI / TinCan / AICC CMI-5
  • 7. E-Learning Standards in Your LMS • Development and testing – Ask for the LMS content integration guide it should have standards supported and versions, size limits, media types supported, suggested dev tools, and import/export settings – Test on SCORM Cloud – Test on the target LMS. Look for functional and data/communication issues • Deploying Content to Learners – Try to get a student account on the LMS for testing. – Perform a small group test with learners before taking a course live. – Test with different browsers and OS that learners may use. – Check to see that all learner systems produce the same course reports in the LMS. Then make the course live.
  • 8. Purchase and Deployment Models Cloud-Based • Define: Not on your server. Open Source • Define: On your server, no cost for the software Commercial • Define: On your server, the software cost you money
  • 9. Purchase and Deployment Models Cloud-Based • Pros: Nothing to install, quick sign up, server and software maintenance not your problem. Open Source • Pros: You can modify the code, no cost to download and install, unlimited site installs, backed by the community Commercial • Pros: Data is on your server, software maintenance not your problem, dedicated support staff, usually more “enterprise” than other options
  • 10. Purchase and Deployment Models Cloud-Based • Cons: It’s not yours, your data is in the “cloud”, you can’t update the software, high usage can generate high fees. Open Source • Cons: Its on your server! You have to take care of it. No help desk. The cost is in internal maintenance, upgrades, security patches etc. Commercial • Cons: Usually start-up and yearly fees, can not make changes,
