What is SCORM/ AICC/ xAPI?

Whether you have 100 or 10,000 users or more, SmarterU LMS will scale to meet your needs.

It’s not just a matter of speed - we’re fast.  It’s also a matter of how the system is designed – managing a huge number of users, courses, and records just works.

AICC is very similar to SCORM in capability, and is a format which is often used by third party course providers, such as when distributing their modules to clients. xAPI is a more powerful version of the SCORM standard which facilitates increased reporting and offline course taking.
For ease of communication, we refer to all three types as SCORM.

Universal Standard

SCORM is a worldwide standard and is a specification of the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative, which came from the Office of the United States Secretary of Defence.

Why it matters

SCORM matters because it makes your content more portable. SmarterU can import any previously created SCORM-compliant courses, so moving from your existing LMS to SmarterU doesn’t mean rebuilding your existing SCORM content.

Post-Course Evaluations

Allowing your learners to provide post-course evaluations can help you gain a better understanding on the experiences of your learners as they proceed through their training. Surveys can be created in Typeform or Survey Monkey — so easy!
