Thursday, May 13, 2021
Online
Data & Measurement

eLearning standards—these two simple words can inspire dread in even the most experienced L&D professionals and instructional designers. There are a number of eLearning standards that are supported by various authoring platforms and learning management systems, and they all have pros and cons. Oftentimes you'll need to make a call on which standard best supports the goals of you and your client, taking into account such things as the delivery format, reporting requirements, system compatibility, etc. It's important to understand the nuances of each eLearning standard so that you understand which standard might be best suited for your specific use case.

This session will be a lively discussion on the similarities and differences between each eLearning standard so you can make an informed choice for your content format, next RFP, or product evaluation. You'll hear opposing points of view from the argument that SCORM's longevity has brought mass interoperability to the rebuttal that it doesn't capture the entire picture of learning experiences. We'll share usage trends and adoption rates across the industry, in particular for new standards such as xAPI and cmi5 that have gained traction and are steadily increasing. Lastly, we'll review your options and provide example scenarios so you know which one is right for your business and technical requirements.‬‬

  • A practical understanding on the similarities and differences between SCORM, xAPI, cmi5, LTI, and AICC
  • How to consider the delivery format, reporting requirements, and system compatibility for your specific use case
