As I prepared my presentation deck covering converting SCORM content to cmi5 for the fall xAPI Cohort Party, I reminisced about various parts of the CATAPULT project and the sometimes unexpected starts and stops we made while experimenting with creating the cmi5 course templates.
One of the important CATAPULT goals had little to do with testing LMS platforms or developed content. Instead, there was a specific outreach goal to design content examples that satisfied a series of goals to speed up adoption:
Show as many best practices as reasonable. Include tricky elements to show how to avoid mistakes. Use well-known public/open source assets. Be accessible to a wide variety of content builders.
