Building the Perfect AICC
Get your own ASP.NET AICC Learning Management System (LMS) engine
We created AICC Watch to provide a test bed while we added AICC support to our Training Studio® and Exam Engine™ products.
While there is a free test suite (and lots of good documentation) available at http://www.aicc.org, we found it difficult to use on
Vista/Windows 7 because it created these strange modal dialog boxes that kept you from running the Learning Management System (LMS) simulation in one window and your content in another.
The AICC Test Suite also requires you to install the Apache web server. That was not a big problem but it takes time and effort to get it running alongside Internet Information Services (IIS).
For AICC Watch, we followed the model of our popular SCORM Watch™
product to make an interactive LMS simulation that you can use to make sure your content sends and receives bookmarks, question information, and other data. While there are several
flavors of AICC, this product deals with the HACP (HTTP AICC CMI Protocol) interface. This is where the content communicates with the LMS using HTTP Post.
AICC Watch allows you to see/control the information sent to your content as well as
display and act on the data sent from your content. For advanced developers, you can even debug AICC calls directly from within Visual Studio. Source code is included!
