IT Documentation Generation & Quick Reference
Why did Skillaware™ adopt these standards in order to define and translate the learning process?
The Experience API specification from ADL (http://www.adlnet.gov/tla/experience-api/) provides learning analytics with more granularity and flexibility to account for actions, processes and experiences. It is an important piece of creating a personal track record of user experience and activity streams whilst using new software, with which Skillaware™ may monitor learners and their experiences in order to optimize the learning and support materials.
The DITA specification from OASIS (https://www.oasis-open.org/committees/dita/) is a new revolutionary format for organizing and structuring digital information into individual topics and chunks. The topic-based structure allows the writer to organize content into individual chunks of information. A topic is usually a single task, concept, or reference.
Some of the benefits of organizing content into topics include:
- Helps to promote consistency
- Allows writers to focus on individual tasks or concepts
- Enables easier localization
- Facilitates the production of multiple outputs from one source
Thanks to its unique mix of proprietary algorithms and interoperability standards, Skillaware™ is able to distribute, monitor and improve performance support materials at a level of efficacy unmatched by other performance support system on the market to date.
