Tin Can API: What It Has in Store for Online Learning Environments

ProProfs

In a traditional classroom-based teaching and learning environment, the only time you get to assess the knowledge of each learner is at the end of tests and examinations. This method is not conducive to the holistic development of learners as it doesn’t show the whole picture of the learning activity. What you need is a data-driven learning & development (L&D) process and that’s where Tin Can API steps in. Recording offline learning activities.

Tin Can API & the Future of E-Learning

Learnnovators

“One small step for e-learning technology, One giant leap for the e-learning industry.” Tin Can API (or ‘Experience API’) is one of the most extensively discussed technical topics amongst learning professionals all over the world today. This is mainly because of the relevance it carries in today’s world of ‘Learning Transformation’. However, ‘Experience API’ is ADL’s official name for this standard. Occurring even while learners are offline.

The Role of xAPI in Creating Powerful Learning Experiences for the Modern Workforce

Origin Learning

eLearning as a training medium to foster learning at the workplace has been in existence for over two decades now. From early adopters who used archaic systems to set up a lesson that could be shared on one computer with an instructor to guide employees, to modern workplace learning that’s focused on xAPI -enabled mobile learning; eLearning at the workplace has traveled a long way. It was originally a research project that was awarded to Rustici Software by ADL.

Moving and receiving xAPI data in an LRS rich environment

Experience API

xAPI data can come from: Non-launched learning experiences : activities that happen outside of a browser. Launched learning content : traditional eLearning courses, usually via an LMS. eLearning systems : other learning systems like a next-gen learning platform. Plenty of systems may send and receive xAPI data, including LMSs, analytics tools, gamification platforms, LRSs, mobile apps or VR/AR platforms. Store xAPI data offline.

Tin Can vs. SCORM: What’s It All About?

Here, we’ll define and differentiate Tin Can and SCORM to make e-Learning a whole lot clearer for you! It’s a specification for sharing data across different systems. SCORM is a set of technical standards for e-Learning software products. It tells programmers how to write their code so that it works well with other e-learning software. Specifically, SCORM governs how online learning content and Learning Management Systems (LMSs) communicate with each other.

What is Tin Can API?

LearnUpon

While the SCORM standard isn’t going anywhere soon, Tin Can has redefined some of the fundamental practices of tracking learning experiences. The SCORM specification was introduced by ADL in 1999. SCORM quickly became the standard around which a whole industry of authoring tools, learning management systems, and content development was built. Rustici Software believe that “learning happens everywhere”. The role of the Learning Record Store.

The What, How and Why of xAPI in Corporate Learning

WhatFix

Think of learning experiences as an ocean of puzzle pieces scattered everywhere. who serves as the Director of the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative, aptly put it ‘xAPI helps us put the puzzle together’. This attempt to routinely piece together the individual’s ‘learning puzzle’ is key to a more intuitive and agile future of learning. And then, all these particulars would be stored in a learning record store (LRS), or a data storage system. .

Active Learning. Active learning is a strategy focused on encouraging learners to actively participate in training. Examples of active learning activities include practical tasks and problem-solving conducted in small groups. It’s a five-phase framework that instructional designers use; a guideline for building effective training and learning support tools. In today’s fast-paced learning environments, the AGILE method is often seen as more efficient than ADDIE.
