With the Tin Can API, all of these experiences can be tracked and accounted for. 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. We can track more details than ever before.

(2) I'm fairly certain that google analytics could crawl a moodle install and reveal some amazing tracking measurements.
