Let me take you on a small what-if scenario with Apple and Adobe — then let me tell you why I think this is important from a learning technology standards perspective.
Bill Brandon contacted me back in May to gauge my interest in summing up an objective perspective to make sense of the differences between IMS Global Learning Consortium, ADL and LETSI. The article is now published on the eLearning Guild’s site as the (now) latest issue of Learning Solutions magazine.
There are a number of technology ideas (products) that LETSI could address, but I think that’s putting the cart before the horse. What I’d like to do is answer Avron’s question with what I’m calling (to keep the meme going) the BAQON model
SCORM 2.x will layout how open standards will work together — but it will spurn off an open source community to develop interoperable services for learning.
With the help of tools like Articulate and Adobe Captivate, non-technical authors are producing more content by volume than the merry few of us who actually know how to work with the SCORM Run-Time Data Model –let alone the elite among that population that figured out how to do Simple Sequencing.
