Sharable Content Object Reference Model

Sharable Content Object Reference Model
SCORM is a specification of the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative from the Office of the United States Secretary of Defense. SCORM versions[edit] SCORM 1.1[edit] SCORM 1.1 is the first production version. SCORM 1.2[edit] This was the first version that was widely used. SCORM 2004[edit] This is the current version. SCORM 2004 editions[edit] 3rd Edition (October 2005) — clarification of various conformance requirements and of the interaction between content objects and the runtime environment for sequencing; some new conformance requirements to improve interoperability.4th Edition Released (March 31, 2009) — more stringent interoperability requirements, more flexible data persistence.[2] SCORM 2004 specification books[edit] Experience API (Tin Can API)[edit] The Experience API (also known as xAPI or Tin Can API) was finalized to version 1.0 in April 2013.

Tin Can API The Tin Can API, now officially known as "Experience API" (xAPI), is an e-learning software specification that allows learning content and learning systems to speak to each other in a manner that records and tracks all types of learning experiences.[1] Learning experiences are recorded in a Learning Record Store (LRS). LRSs can exist within traditional Learning Management Systems (LMSs) or on their own.[2] Summary[edit] The Tin Can API is commonly referred to as "The Experience API" and "Next Generation SCORM."

IJET Articles (November, 2002) - v3,n1 [ISSN 1327-7308] - Cheryl J. Hamel, University of Central Florida - David Ryan-Jones, Joint ADL Co-Laboratory A new trend is shaping the future of educational technology. In the new e-learning economy, buyers and sellers in education and training markets are economically motivated to pursue global commerce opportunities involved in distributed learning over the Internet. International working groups, such as the Aviation Industry CBT Committee (AICC), the Instructional Management Systems Global Learning Consortium (IMS), and the Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers (IEEE), are developing standards for web- and computer-based courseware architecture and packaging. Software standards for digital media and instruction are intended to ensure that courseware will be developed, organized, and distributed in a uniform manner. One concept underlying the evolving courseware standards is that the same instructional content may be usable in different instructional contexts. What Are Learning Objects?

Learning Registry | sharing what we know sep04_02 Editor’s Note: Learning objects make it unnecessary to have thousands of iterations of the same teaching point. Metadata makes it possible to select and integrate relevant learning experiences from a relatively small library of learning objects. Reusable learning objects permit lessons to be generated and customized for specific groups or even for individuals. Extensive research and development has led to a vocabulary of specialized terms to define learning objects. Rory McGreal Learning objects (LOs) enable and facilitate the use of educational content online. Learning Object Repositories (LORs) that are being created house the LOs providing seamless access to a vast store of learning resources such as animations, videos, simulations, educational games, and multimedia texts in the same way that Napster and IPod users have access to music files. LOs are sometimes defined as being educational resources that can be employed in technology-supported learning. This terminology includes:
