Tin Can API, the evolution of SCORM
MAY 27, 2015
Tin Can API , also known as Experience API or xAPI, is generally considered to be the successor to SCORM , and expands the ability of the organizations that use it to gather data about the experiences, both offline and online, experiences that are quantifiable, trackable and shareable. Learning can be tracked both on and offline. SCORM – the precursor to Tin Can API. LMS, LRS or both?
Tin Can API & the Future of E-Learning
OCTOBER 13, 2013
Here is a quick re-cap on this learning standard, before we take a closer look at some of the use cases: Experience API is a new (and evolving) e-learning specification that makes it possible to collect data about the wide range of learning experiences a person goes through (both online and offline). However, ‘Experience API’ is ADL’s official name for this standard. INTRODUCTION.
5 Ways Tin Can API Revolutionizes eLearning
OCTOBER 13, 2012
ADL commissioned Rustici Software to develop the specification, which looks to supplant SCORM as the go-to eLearning spec of the 2010′s…and then some. Tin Can API allows for tracking of the informal learning activities, both online and offline, that we are all doing every day… and brings them into the training picture as well. Do these sound familiar? Hallelujah!
What is Tin Can API?
FEBRUARY 23, 2016
The SCORM specification was introduced by ADL in 1999. As a result, Tin Can delivers a far more detailed view of learner progress, within and beyond traditional learning environments, both online and offline. Over the past three years, the Tin Can API has emerged as the hot new standard for delivering online training. But what is Tin Can API? Here’s why. What is Tin Can API?

The standard is developed by the company RUSTICI but ADL is still the steward of the specification, just like SCORM. TinCan also claims improvements on another commonly required but rarely delivered functionality – the ability to complete learning objects offline and synchronize when you get online. Even when not working completely offline people ask for better support for browser timeout and connection drops. TinCan is heavily promoted as the successor of SCORM and was designed to fix many things that were lacking on the previous standard. over the last five years.
Tin Can vs. SCORM: What’s It All About?
SEPTEMBER 25, 2015
Both SCORM and the Tin Can API were developed by the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL), a research group sponsored by the DoD, with help from Rustici Software. It lifts many restrictions that came with previous specifications and can recognize and communicate well with (but not limited to) mobile learning, simulations, virtual worlds, serious games, real-world activities, experiential learning, social learning, offline learning, and collaborative learning. Here, we’ll define and differentiate Tin Can and SCORM to make e-Learning a whole lot clearer for you! What is SCORM?
What is Cmi5? A new set of rules for xAPI
MARCH 2, 2017
As ADL have taken over the cmi5 specification there is a suggestion that this will prompt further evolution. With cmi5, ADL are writing the packaging and structuring specification that xAPI failed to deliver. ADL are taking the best parts of AICC, SCORM and xAPI, and combining them with a new specification to improve tracking for online course delivery and reporting systems.
Best of the Best: Content Authoring Tools

To give you an example, the free version is ADL SCORM 2004 certified (many commercial paid ones are not). Online/Offline synch comes with the tool – a requirement for any RCAT that offers m-learning IMO, especially one where people build courses. While traditionally best of the best are announced in December, I decided why wait. I mean it is not like something is going to change in just a few weeks for any such product. Before I get to the list, people always want to know how do I decide what constitutes the best of the best. Here are my criteria. An additional note.

That we can use web services and describe a consistent (albeit imperfect) approach to handling offline activity and syncing localized activity data back to an LRS… this is a huge advancement beyond what we’ve done with SCORM — even as we acknowledge that it doesn’t replace SCORM. International adopters, outside of NATO allies, are not able to work on this through ADL for obvious reasons, but they have come (and will come) to IEEE, and all sectors of adoption are welcome to work together there. This is a long read. So here goes. It’s an existing spec.

Q&A - eLearning Standards Especially SCORM
SEPTEMBER 5, 2006
There are a bunch of other standards by ADL (who is responsible for SCORM ), IMS , IEEE LTSC including CORDRAâ„¢ , LOM , Meta-data , etc. However, as Pierre pointed out in the comments (and I've edited the text here based on his comments - thanks Pierre) - ADL's SCORM really incorporates what we need from these other standards and thus we've not needed to spend effort going into these standards separately. Note: ARIADNE, AICC, IEEE LTSC, and IMS all participate in ADL's work on SCORM). That's great! I like getting interesting questions. What about other Standards?
