The cmi5 specification was created by the Aviation Industry Computer-Based Training Committee (AICC) and the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative to provide an alternative to the Shareable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM).
It defines how online learning resources are imported, launched, and tracked using a similar methodology to SCORM; however, the cmi5 specification offers enhanced capabilities by also conforming to the Experience Application Programming Interface (xAPI) specification.
The cmi5 specification uses xAPI as the communication and data layer but implements controlled vocabularies, which are required for interoperability between Learning Management Systems (LMSs) and LMS-like systems. The cmi5 specification contains a vocabulary model and xAPI Statement patterns that are encapsulated as an xAPI Profile.
New models of education are emerging, built on the decentralized power of Web3, giving potential for learners to own their education – validating their knowledge with decentralized technology in contrast to previous models.
Dion Hinchcliffe gives us some background to, the motivations behind and some of the technologies involved in Web 3.
“Web3 is part of a major new generation of technology evolution that will dramatically change business and IT for the long term. It has far-reaching implications that can help enterprises identify significant opportunities as well as avoid disruptions in the road ahead. I strongly urge all organizations to begin to assess Web3 uptake in their competitive landscape and prepare for the necessary activities in technology adoption and evolution.”
The evolution of WeegieRugbyTV continues with Episode 2.
This week we have the included match photos and videos from the Glasgow Uni Medics v Cowal game and the Strathendrick v East Kilbride game.
Including the photos and videos extends the episode to 5 minutes and we’ll need to gauge if this is too long (will keep an eye on average viewing time). But in saying that, we’ve included two game which we wouldn’t normally do.
Will also experiment on the video, should we be using zoom to get close to the action, or not, so we can get more of what’s happening.
Founded in 2001, Moodle is a leading light in the opensource movement. By relying on partners (there’s currently 84 of them) to pay royalties for using the software, end-users get the software for free (but paying for support and services) whilst funds are generated for the central project.
But now, Martin Dougiamas, founder and CEO of Moodle Pty Ltd, has succumbed to an outside investor, with France based Education for the Many, injecting $6m dollars into the company.
