SCORM, AICC, xAPI - Which one do I need?
Craig Weiss, 2024/04/05


These days this feels a bit like a blast from the past, though in some circles (especially corporate learning circles) these are still very current. For readers who are relatively new to OLDaily (which used to cover such things a lot more closely) SCORM and AICC are learning resource packaging formats, while xAPI is a specification for recording learning activities. Craig Weiss discusses these and more in this interview.

InfoQ Software Architecture and Design Trends Report - April 2024
Thomas Betts, et al., InfoQ, 2024/04/05


What I like about the InfoQ trends reports is that they begin by considering what they wrote last year, being clear about where they've changed terminology (for example, "the topic of 'privacy engineering' is more precise than 'design for security')." This results in an analysis that is consistent year over year; trends don't suddenly appear, disappear and appear again. Having said that, what counts as a 'trend' depends very much on your point of view. This list identifies trends from a technology and development perspective.
