The Next Generation of SCORM: Innovation for the Global Force

  title={The Next Generation of SCORM: Innovation for the Global Force},
  author={Jonathan Poltrack and Nikolaus Hruska and Andy J. Johnson and Jason Haag},
This paper summarizes the current progress and future direction of a research effort on the next generation of the Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM). While the SCORM was successful in addressing high-level requirements to solve the challenges within military training systems, it was engineered prior to the widespread use of mobile devices, intelligent tutors, virtual worlds, games, and other new technologies that augment today’s learner beyond formal training scenarios. The DoD… 
The Past, Present and Future of SCORM
This paper shall try to investigate the factors that led to the evolution of this ongoing standardization process today, along with mentioning its general functioning principles and its future perspectives.
Technical Learning Infrastructure, Interoperability and Standards
This chapter guides the reader through several papers discussing past and current efforts to improve the maturity of TEL systems through standards and specifications.
Nextgen Navy eLearning tracking
A prototype system was developed in a virtual environment to showcase the use of the xAPI/LRS to track quiz data, and showed that xAPI, along with its LRS, can overcome the NeL's AtlasPro LMS limitation of only tracking learning from a user's desktop computer using an Internet browser.
Capturing AIS Behavior Using xAPI-like Statements
This paper considers a minimalistic and behavioristic view of AIS to enable a standardizable mapping of both the behavior of the system and of the learner, and concretizes this approach using AutoTutor, a conversation-based ITS, serving as a typical intelligent digital resource.
Synthetic environments for skills training and practice
This chapter discusses the development, presentation, and measurement of SEs for training and assessment as supporting a cycle that relates motivation and retention to performance as portrayed in Figure 11.1.
Knowledge Level Assessment in e-Learning Systems Using Machine Learning and User Activity Analysis
A modern design of a dynamic learning environment that goes along the most recent trends in e-Learning is proposed, and an overall performance superiority of a support vector machine model in evaluating the knowledge levels is illustrated.
On demand analysis of learning experiences for adaptive content retrieval in an e-learning environment
The Cross Dimensional Slicing (CDS) algorithm proposed in this paper has proved that the multidimensional representation of learning experiences greatly improves the effectiveness of analyzing them and thereby improving the precision of LOs being recommended.
Towards a Generalized Framework for Intelligent Teaching and Learning Systems: The Argument for a Lightweight Multiagent Architecture
A critique of the U.S. Army’s Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT) and considers features of a general-purpose framework which would encourage message-driven, multiagent designs, sharing of services, and porting of modules across systems.
How different serious games interoperability aspects such as deployment, tagging, discovery, assessment and adaptation have been addressed in eAdventure applying some of the available e-learning specifications and standards are presented.
Facilitating the creation of interactive multi-device Learning Objects using an online authoring tool
An open source online e-Learning authoring tool called ViSH Editor is presented together with four novel interactive Learning Objects that can be created with it: Flashcards, Virtual Tours, Enriched Videos and Interactive Presentations and the results show that ViSH editor facilitates educators the creation of high quality Learning Objects.


Crowdsourcing: Leveraging Innovation through Online Idea Competitions: For Collecting Ideas to Feed the Product-Development Pipeline, Idea Competitions Are More Efficient and Effective Than Traditional Tools
A comparison of costs and benefits between focus groups and online idea competitions as methods to find ideas for product innovations may prove enlightening, and suggests that idea competitions and focus groups have different strengths that managers will want to consider when planning an effort to solicit ideas for new products from consumers.
A learning experience.
This self-assessment helps to clarify rationale for levels selected and will help you to set realistic goals.
Online social networks as formal learning environments: Learner experiences and activities
A case study of learners’ perspectives and experiences in an online course taught using the Elgg online social network indicates that learners enjoyed and appreciated both the social learning experience and supported one another in their learning, enhancing their own and other students’ experiences.
The decentralized participatory architecture of the Internet challenges traditional knowledge authorities and hierarchies. Questions arise about whether lay inclusion helps to ‘democratize’ knowledge
Fostering an Ecology of Openness: The Role of Social Media in Public Engagement at the Open University, UK
This chapter illustrates the ways in which The Open University (OU), one of the leading distance learning universities in the world, uses a range of social media to engage members of the public in
Organizing learning stream data by eye-tracking in a blended learning environment integrated with social media
This study proposes an approach to employ eye-tracking to extract related learning stream data according to different seeking patterns in a learning process to benefit both teachers and students.
Dynamical User Networking and Profiling Based on Activity Streams for Enhanced Social Learning
This study integrates SNS (such as twitter) into the web-based learning process and further delve into the discovery of potential information from the reorganized stream data and proposes a Dynamical Socialized User Networking (DSUN) model which represents users' profiling and dynamical relationship by a set of measures.
Social Learning in Social Networks
This paper analyzes a model of social learning in a social network. Agents decide whether or not to adopt a new technology with unknown payoffs based on their prior beliefs and the experiences of
