Today the Sakai project employs the following third party standards:

  • Experience API (also called xAPI or Tin Can API), a specification that collects data about a person’s learning experiences and activities from many technologies to provide a rich picture of a person’s learning path 
  • IMS Common Cartridge, used for organizing and distributing digital learning content 
  • IMS Learning Information Services (LIS) Specification, used for sharing information about people, groups, memberships, courses and outcomes within the education context
  • IMS Learning Tool Interoperability (LTI), used for easy integration between applications, systems and mash-ups
  • IMS Question and Test Interoperability (QTI) Specification, used for sharing test data and results between systems, applications and learning tools
  • IMS Content Packaging, used for exporting content from one learning content management system or digital repository to another
  • Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM), a set of standards and specifications used to define information about learning objects and content so that they can be packaged and transferred between learning management systems For more information about supported versions of each standard, please refer to documentation about the latest release of Sakai and its compliance with industry standards.
