Learning-Management-Systems-Can-Be-Very-Complex.-V48

  1. 1. Learning management systems can be very complex. Viable learning management systems are SCORM/AICC compliant. Inthis article, I will provide a basic explanation of the SCORM/AICC standard used in the marketplace today by many learning management systems.web design
  2. 2. What is a learning management system? As a refresher from a previousarticle, learning management systems (LMSs) are web-based softwareapplication platforms used to plan, implement, and assess learningprocesses related to online and offline training administration andperformance management LMSs allow an instructor to create anddeliver content, monitor learnersÂ’ participation, and assess studentperformance LMSs also allow learners to use interactive features suchas threaded discussions, web conferencing, discussion forums, and othermethods of communication
  3. 3. When learning management systems are SCORM/AICC compliant, whatdoes that mean? SCORM stands for Sharable Content Object ReferenceModel, which is a set of specifications that, when applied to coursecontent, produces small, reusable e-Learning objects A result of theDepartment of Defenses Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative,SCORM-compliant courseware elements are easily merged with othercompliant elements to produce a highly modular repository of trainingmaterials
  4. 4. AICC standards apply to the development, delivery, and evaluation oftraining courses that are delivered via technology, i e
  5. 5. , more often than not, through learning management systems AICCstands for the Aviation Industry CBT [Computer-Based Training]Committee (AICC), which is an international association oftechnology-based training professionals that develops training guidelinesfor the aviation industry
  6. 6. What is the Advance Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative? ADL is agovernment-sponsored organization that was started to developspecifications and promote the adoption and spread of e-Learning Theyare the group responsible for developing the ADL Shareable ContentObject Reference Model (SCORM)
  7. 7. SCORM parameters combine elements of the Institute of Electrical andElectronics Engineers (IEEE), AICC, and Information ManagementStandard (IMS) specifications into a consolidated document that can beeasily implemented SCORM-compliant courseware elements are easilymerged with other compliant elements to produce a highly modularrepository of training materials that allows suppliers and web designcontent developers to implement e-Learning specifications in a consistentand reusable way
  8. 8. In upcoming articles, we will discuss more about the SCORM/AICCstandard as it is related to your learning management systems selectionand other issues surrounding the SCORM/AICC standards as associatedto e-Learning More Information on the ADL and SCORM/AICCStandards More information on the ADL and the SCORM/AICC standardscan be found at their web site
