  • I want to track my real learning experiences
  • I want to have data about mobile learning
  • I want to know what I’ve learned via my console
  • I want to track what I’ve read
  • I want to analyze how I learn just like I analyze my blog traffic
  • many, many more • performance support • learning across modalities • informal learning • workplace learning
  • Expectations Standards Reality
  • Chasing SCORMosaur SCORM
  • With SCORM we can only enjoy packaged content.
  • TinCan API
  • WHY? Technology MotivationInteroperability Big breakthroughs happen when what is suddenly possible meets what is desperately necessary.
  • An industry in need of an update People think that the LMS does a good job today for what it was originally intended to do when it was created 20 years ago.
  • An industry in need of an update 45% gave their LMS a C, D, or F with an overall LMS satisfaction of a B - average
  • LMS LEARNERS mentors peers books youtube classroom google
  • If you are not measuring it you are not managing it.
  • Can you afford not to manage learning?
