New Generation of eLearning Technologies Explained, Compared and Applied

883

Published on

It has been a long time since a new version of SCORM or AICC has been released. The reason for this is simple - those two standards are no longer under active development and have been overcome by events. The new specifications are xAPI (formerly known as TinCan) and CMI-5, based entirely on WebServices and replacing the aging AICC 4.0 standard.

These new technologies are being enthusiastically embraced by all market segments. But, as with any new technology, there is plenty of confusion, growing pains and misconceptions. In this presentation, Chris Sawwa, director of eLearning at Meridian Knowledge Solutions,explains what works and what doesn’t and how things will change.

He outlines the new standards and how they compare with SCORM, the dominant eLearning content interoperability standard for close to a decade. He explains what the new specs do, how to decide which one to use, and how to proceed from there.
