AICC is an industry standard that applies to the development, delivery, and evaluation of training courses. The Advance Distributed Learning (ADL) is a government-sponsored organization responsible for AICC standards.
AICC is used when you want a course on Litmos to run content served from another LMS or content server.
If you are uploading the content directly to Litmos, AICC should not be used - SCORM is the way to go.
Litmos is AICC 4.0 Compliant.
How to Use AICC With Litmos
Once you have your course content available on your content server, you need to create a small Zip file for upload to a Litmos module. please refer to your content provider/LMS/server for steps to create the Zip file.
Your Zip file should contain 4 small files each around 1kb in size (it should not contain the course content):
- AU File - contains data needed to launch the course. You may need to edit the content of this file (refer to your content server/LMS/provider for support).
- CRS File - contains information about the course, such as a text description.
- CST File - contains data about the course structure.
- DES File - contains a list of modules.
Litmos uses 'Completed/Incomplete' to record course status.
Note: For Lynda.com files, the user will need to log into the file using their Lynda.com username and password upon accessing the content within Litmos.
