Is Tin Can API Lipstick on the SCORM Pig?

Living in Learning

Last week [October 25th] I had the distinct privilege of sitting in on the Tin Can API break-out session that was presented by Aaron Silvers of ADL. Given ADL was also the birth mother of SCORM, I walked in and sat down with a preconception or two that this was SCORM in a new dress. I’m not sure of his exact title, but his role was in a leadership capacity on the Tin Can API project. His business card says “the Beard”…and while that was accurate, I still don’t know his real title.

What is Tin Can?

eFront

The Tin Can API is a brand new learning technology specification that opens up an entire world of experiences (online and offline). This API captures the activities that happen as part of learning experiences. Mobile learning, simulations, virtual worlds, serious games, real-world activities, experiential learning, social learning, offline learning, and collaborative learning are just some of the things that can now be recognized and communicated well with the Tin Can API.

SCORM vs Tin Can API: The difference between compact discs and iTunes

ProProfs

At some point in the past, eLearning standards were built for facilitating interoperability between content and LMS; now with SCORM and especially Tin Can API, it’s about tracking learning experiences as much as it is about interoperability. Track informal learning (simulation, games etc).

Tin Can API, the evolution of SCORM

Tin Can API means there is less reliance on an LMS as these experiences are stored in a Learning Record Store, or LRS. Some of the many benefits of Tin Can API are: Tin Can API can track many different formal and informal learning experiences, not just the content hosted on an LMS.

Webinar Q&A: Empowering Continuous Learning with the Experience API (xAPI)

Experience API

Activity Providers can request this information from the LRS if they need it (and if the LRS gives them permission). With an LMS, it’s easy to see where learners would go to view their own learning accomplishments. You use an LRS to store, retrieve and study data about learning experiences; you use an LMS to launch and facilitate learning experiences. You can think of an LRS as “the part of the LMS that implements xAPI and that tracks learning activity”.
