A lot of the "ADL buzz" of the last couple years has been around the Experience API (xAPI). While there is a lot to be excited about, making process, infrastructure, and cultural changes takes time and stability. We realize not every organization can jump with both feet into a new technology. Nor do we expect them to! Many of you have a great deal of time, skills, and money invested in SCORM®. With this in mind, ADL Initiative would like to present a roadmap of SCORM® and how it fits into the current and future Total Learning Architecture (TLA).
While the "SCORM® to TLA Roadmap" is written with a SCORM® starting point and TLA final destination, it outlines a continuum of different phases, all of which are completely valid instantiations of the technologies currently in use. It may be in your organization's best interest to find a phase on the Roadmap and focus on one "location"! Only YOU can figure out where your organization is, but each phase is explained graphically, as well as from a pros and cons perspective.
To support each stop along the map, ADL Initiative is happy to announce the following activities:
All xAPI activities will continue as normal, but it is important to know that we expect many xAPI adopters will be on a migration path that begins with SCORM®. We want that path to be well-lit. The roadmap and supporting documents and software projects will be released in the near future. Stay tuned for more updates.
