Still, the need for improved courseware-LMS interoperability remained. To address this need, the AICC and ADL decided to cooperate on developing cmi5, which is an interoperability standard based on xAPI. The new specification, officially released in June 2016, is designed to do what SCORM does but in a new and improved way.
Like SCORM, cmi5 provides a turnkey approach to deploy, launch, and track online courses through an LMS. Some key advantages of cmi5 over SCORM are its ability to support mobile learning, track any type of course interaction, and eliminate the SCORM-generated pop-ups that often cause problems with pop-up blockers.
