The Aviation Industry CBT Committee (AICC) E-Learning standard uses the HTTP AICC Communication Protocol (HACP) to permit the exchange between course content and the LMS. The HACP method uses an HTML form to send information to the LMS, while the LMS sends information back to the course as a text string.
Uploading AICC Content as Learning Objects
To upload this type of learning object, Access the Admin Menu from the gear icon in the top right corner of the platform. In the E-Learning section, select the Courses item. To upload an AICC package into the platform, select a previously created course from the list of courses on the Course Management page. Make sure you are subscribed to the course as a Superadmin or Instructor.
Press the menu icon in the course’s row, then select Training Material from the dropdown menu. Once you’re on the Training Materials page, select the Add Training Material button, then select AICC from the dropdown menu.
On the next page, select the Upload File button, then select a package from your computer. You can also set and modify the launch modality of the object for desktop, tablets, and smartphones. Finally, move to the Additional Info tab to add a short description of the text, then select or upload a thumbnail. When you’re finished, press Save Changes.
You can also upload an AICC file into the Central Learning Object Repository (CLOR), and the object can be versioned. Please refer to the corresponding CLOR manual linked in this paragraph to learn more about this process.
