From SCORM to Project Tin Can: Supporting Future Learning Experiences

SCORM has been around for a decade and the interoperability it enables has allowed the e-learning industry to blossom. But new learning experiences present new problems.  There are exciting projects in the works to support learning experiences beyond what SCORM currently enables. These projects, from ADL, AICC and LETSI, aim to support out-of-browser experiences, mobile delivery, offline and occasionally connected training, shared learning data, team-based learning, serious games, simulations, and more. There is an alphabet soup of projects and organizations all striving toward the common objective of enabling truly advanced and effective online learning. To an outside observer, these projects are a maze of acronyms and geek speak. This session will separate the forest from the trees.

Purpose:  We will learn about Project Tin Can, ADL’s Future Learning Experience Project (FLEx), AICC’s CMI 5, PENS and LETSI’s Runtime Web Services. More importantly we’ll talk about how these pieces fit together and the new capabilities they will enable.  We will also discuss opportunities to get involved and influence the future direction of e-learning technology. Audience members should be familiar with SCORM at a conceptual level.

Objectives: As a result of this presentation, Attendees will be able to:

  • 1.       Plan how best to utilize these emerging technologies and capabilities.
  • 2.       Have intelligent conversations with their vendors about these upcoming directions and how they can begin to adopt emerging standards.
