Learning Content - AICC


AICC provides a standard for communication between online training content and learning management systems. As an LMS, SuccessFactors is focused on the following sections of the AICC guidelines:

  1. Communication between content and an LMS
    The Communication guidelines set well defined rules for passing information from content to an LMS and vice-versa. The guidelines specify the method by which information should be passed, and the format in which the information should be communicated (analogous to saying we will communicate by telephone and in French). The AICC outlined two means of communicating with online content. These are defined in Appendix A and Appendix B of the AICC CMI Guidelines for Interoperability document.

    NOTE: Plateau fully supports the communication method outline in Appendix A (also known as HACP communication). Plateau also supports the Appendix B communication method as implemented under SCORM 1.2.

  2. Content setup within an LMS.
    The AICC guidelines define a set of files used to provide an LMS with the course definition. These files may be used by an LMS to import the course metadata. It is important to note that the actual content is not imported or exported, just the definition or setup information for the content; the item (course) and content object (module) definitions.
