With the successful roll-out of the Experience API (xAPI) the foundation for a new SCORM standard has been laid. By itself, xAPI is not a replacement for SCORM. Instead, xAPI defines communication between a learning experience and the learning record store, or LRS. While most of us agree that the majority of learning occurs outside the LMS, there is still some formal eLearning that will be maintained in the LMS, so a more modern SCORM is certainly needed. Now that ADL is taking over the cmi5 specification from the AICC, it is clear that cmi5 is the “next generation” of SCORM. This article provides an introduction to this powerful new specification.
