Instructional Designers In Offices Drinking Coffee

Tracking Mobile Content & Interactions: SCORM & xAPI - Pick one, the other or both? With Robert Gadd

Episode Summary

The eLearning industry has had mobile learning, or mLearning, for well over 15 years now. Wow! Has it really been that long? Yep. So, are you creating mLearning? Have you moved to a mobile first methodology? What about your SCORM packages in your LMS are they mobile ready? And don't forget about xAPI... Ahhh.... It can all feel a little overwhelming. But thankfully we have Robert Gadd with us on this episode of IDIODC. He's going to help us clear the air, and make sense out of the confusion. As one of the earliest proponents of mLearning, Robert has seen it all. He's developed many, many mLearning solutions and understands the frustration instructional designers have. When we're done, you'll have a much better idea of how to proceed with mLearning in your organization. And we'll sort out the big question: SCORM? xAPI? or both?
