Our Paradiso LMS supports established e-learning standards such as SCORM and AICC, as well as newer more dynamic ones like Tin Can API.
Check out our blog post about Tin Can and SCORM for a more detailed explanation.
SCORM stands for Sharable Content Object Reference Model, and is a set of technical specifications and standards for producing e-learning content. It is the essentially the language of e-learning content.
Aviation Industry Computer-Based Training Committee – or AICC – was an international association of technical software developers that disbanded in 2014. They developed AICC HACP which, like SCORM, is a technical standard used for developing eLearning courses. The new version is called CMI-5, and is compatible with Tin Can API.
CMI-5 is a new standard that was being developed by AICC, but is now under the control of Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL). It works on top of Tin Can API, allowing you to send Tin Can statements for any activity you want.
Tin Can API is the evolution of SCORM, and means there is less reliance on the Learning Management System to gather learning information. Tin Can sends “statements” about what the learner is up to, yielding important data on activities the learner completes, on and offline.
Activities can include reading a relevant article, watching a video or attending a conference, as social learning is now just as important as formal learning. Data is sent to an LRS, or Learning Record Store, where it gives a much broader picture of a learner’s progress and their learning process.
A Learning Management System can only collect certain elearner data, such as course completion, progress and achieving certain set goals. With Tin Can you can collect data on almost anything. Depending on the needs of your company, Tin Can API can be built into an eLearning platform so that you get the best of both worlds.
