  • Introduction

    Demographic Check?
    How many trainers do we have?
    Training Coordinators?
    How many of you are training developers?
    How many of you are training managers?
  • Vendor Selection
    Vendor Management
    System Performance
    System Administration
    Standards compliance
    Management buy-in
    IT buy-in
    Integration with Legacy Systems
    Employee buy-in
    Customization requirements
    Content integration
  • According to a recent Bersin & Associates survey
    81% cited “better content integration” as a critical problem they
    felt should be solved. From multiple content sources to multiple LMS’s
    to high integration costs, many factors contribute to the challenge of
    content integration:
    • Multiple sources of content—Most large organizations have 10 to
    30 different sources of e-learning content, each with its own custom
    software interface, presenting unique integration and upgrade
    challenges. Bersin & Associates estimates that large enterprises (those
    with 10,000 or more employees) have an average of 16 suppliers of
    e-learning content and many have 30 or more.
    • Multiple LMS’s—According to our latest survey of LMS buyers, 34%
    of large organizations have more than one LMS. It is not uncommon
    for larger enterprises to have 15 or more systems holding training
    information. The more systems a company has, the more complex and
    costly is the problem of integration.
    Formidable content integration costs—It is not unusual for a content integration project with an off -the-shelf library of courses to cost $150,000-$300,000 and take two to three months to complete (not to mention updates that can each take an additional month). Some projects take up to five months to deploy and others simply never get off the ground because the technology challenges make them too costly to complete and/or the vendors involved don’t make them a priority. The cost of content integration can sometimes equal the cost of the library itself.”


  • What would it take to make an e-Learning course talk to an LMS (and vice versa) without standards?

    Industry establish standards to simplify the integration of e-Learning content with Learning Management Systems

    We at TWC have also established our own standards and recommend that other companies establish internal standards for the integration of content.
  • AICC
    The original standard
    Formed in 1988 by aviation manufacturers such as Boeing, Airbus, and McDonnell-Douglas to standardize the delivery of CBT as multimedia was becoming popular
    First Web-
    Predates networked eLearning as we know it today

    Learning Management Systems (term coined in 2001)

    What differences between SCORM 1.2 and SCORM 2004?
  • BOTTOM LINE – TWC Uses Both Standards
  • QUESTION, WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE ABLE TO TRACK

    Completion Status - Completion Status / Lesson Status
    Score
    Bookmark – Lesson Location
    Session Time – Session Time

    cmi.completion_status & cmi.lesson_status (cmi.core.lesson_status) – These data model elements are the most fundamental and important. They indicate when a user has finished a course and if he passed or failed. This fundamental information is essential to most LMS’s.
    cmi.score.scaled (cmi.score.raw) – Indicates the score that the learner earned on any assessment within a SCO. Reporting a min and max score in conjunction with a raw score is also good form.
    cmi.session_time (cmi.core.session_time) – Reports the amount of time that the learner spent in the SCO.
    cmi.location (cmi.core.lesson_location) – Provides a free text field for the SCO to record a bookmark. If the SCO is bigger than just a couple HTML pages, it should consider implementing a bookmarking feature to let the learner resume a paused attempt.
    cmi.exit (cmi.core.exit) – This value indicates how the learner is exiting the SCO. Setting cmi.exit to “suspend” will ensure that the current attempt is preserved and the run-time data is not reset the next time the SCO is launched. Setting cmi.exit to “” will indicate that the LMS should begin a new attempt with a new set of run-time data on the next launch of the SCO.
    Industry norm expects all of the 1st tier data models elements to be used correctly in a SCO. Once that functionality has been enabled, the next most common data model elements, or 2nd tier, include:
    interactions – Use the interactions data model elements to report the results of each question response. An interaction doesn’t have to be a traditional test answer. For instance, a SCO could document the learner’s choices as he progresses through a simulation. If possible, use all of the interactions elements to provide the most comprehensive picture of the learner’s responses. At a minimum, use “id”, “type”, “result” and “description” to allow LMS’s to provide basic reporting.
    objectives – In large SCOs, consider reporting on the learner’s mastery of specific learning objectives using the objectives data model elements. Objectives allow for more granular reporting of the learner’s progress through and mastery of the training material.
    cmi.progress_measure – Use the progress_measure element in SCORM 2004 to report the user’s progress towards completion of a SCO. The progress_measure is like a “percent complete” measure that would enable the LMS to provide a progress bar of overall completion of a course.
  • What other questions would you ask?
  • Training / L&D
    Who is allowed to develop training for the LMS?
    What do you want to track?
    What is your internal quality assurance process?
