As video becomes more a part of learniong/training, SCORM’s limitation become more obvious. With Video, one needs to amass a tremendous amount of data to provide the analytics desired and to aadequately support search within the video asset – this seems like the new wave.
I can assure you that without SCORM compliance or something similar, going from one LMS to another or repurposig content is a nightmare. DOD, most of the Gov and most Enterprise customers require SCORM compliance. The big thing about TinCan API is that it dramatically enhances granularity – it fits right in with “big data”.
