ELearning Resolution: No More SCORM
The new year is just around the corner, literally just a couple weeks away. And with every new year comes new expectations and resolutions.
While resolutions are often at a personal level, I am going to suggest that the elearning industry collectively makes a resolution together.
Whether you are an instructional designer, product creator, manager, or CEO – if you are involved in the elearning industry then our resolution for 2016 is this:
No more SCORM.
It has been a few years now that we’ve had Tin Can (Experience) API available to use.
Authoring tools make it simple to publish to Tin Can API.
There are some pretty great platforms that have emerged that make reporting easy with Tin Can API.
Listen, I understand that old habits are hard to break.
That’s why it’s important for all of us to support each other in this new resolution.
Just like many people have a workout partner to hold them accountable for going to the gym, elearning professionals need to hold each other accountable for promoting Tin Can API.
What does that mean exactly? It means creating less articles like this:
It’s time we really make an effort to start educating the masses about Tin Can API. It can be through casual conversation, articles, use-cases, infographics, or what have you.
The point is we need to commit or we will be stuck in the past forever, never quite shaking technology that is over a decade old and unable to keep up with the latest technological trends.
Together we can do this! 🙂
