SCORM Engine 2013.2 is Here

Avatar

We've just released a new version of SCORM Engine (2013.2)- chock full of some new tools to make your xAPI experience with Engine even better. And some improvements including a new face to Console. If you're ready to upgrade to the latest version, just contact us at support@rusticisoftware.com.

Notable New Features

xAPI / SCORM Parity Reports

We’ve listened and heard the need for more aggregated reporting based on the xAPI activities your learners are using outside of the LMS. Engine now has a new reporting feature set that provides easy access to pull data from the LRS to answer such questions as “What activities have my users been completing?”, “How has Joe been performing on his activities?”, “How much time has a user spent in our basic training course?” 

This functionality will provide a companion LRS endpoint to allow you to extract aggregated results data on any user and activity combination in your system.

Check out the developer documentation here and let us know if you have any questions.

Statement Forwarding

You can now forward your statements, or allow your learners to forward their statements, to any other LRS for which you have credentials. See the documentation here for more details.

xAPI 1.0.1 compatibility

Note that this release of the xAPI Specification is only a patch release. In accordance with semantic versioning, which xAPI follows, there are no functional changes within this version.

    Oooooh, "SCORM Parity" -- seeing it written changes my understanding completely!

    Tammy, when we talked about this over the phone recently, I thought you said "SCORM parody", as in "a sad joke when people spend time making xAPI work like SCORM, rather than unlocking its full potential."

    I still haven't figured out how to use xAPI to track training records in a 21-CFR-Part-11-compliant way, and I think I'm moving this quest to the back burner for now, but I'm glad to see the foundation is being laid!
