Tin Can API, the evolution of SCORM

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.

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.

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. A wide range of systems can now securely communicate with a simple vocabulary that captures this stream of activities. ADL (the keepers of SCORM) is the steward of this new specification aka “the next generation of SCORM.”.

Building the Next Generation of SCORM

Integrated Learnings

There have been a lot of changes in internet technology over those years, as well as, many changes in how professional learning is administered and tracked. Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) is leading the effort for the next generation of SCORM. Based on feedback from the community of practitioners, the next generation of SCORM will address some of the following industry issues: Ability to handle distributed content (that is not a part of an LMS).

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.

Q&A - eLearning Standards Especially SCORM

Tony Karrer

Now that I posted about Better Questions for Learning Professionals , I've been receiving questions via email from a variety of people. Here's a recent one to get me started: Is it mandatory to use SCORM while developing an E-learning Software? You want to implement your courseware to the SCORM standard if you plan to have it launched and/or tracked under an LMS. One case is building a one-off course that needs simple tracking/reporting and will never run under an LMS.

TinCan Demystified

eFront

The standard is developed by the company RUSTICI but ADL is still the steward of the specification, just like SCORM. At its core, TinCan is a messaging system. You collect messages in the form of JSON statements about what your learners are achieving while learning or playing or interacting with other people. Those statements are stored on what TinCan calls LRS (Learning Record Store). The LRS can be either standalone or part of an LMS.

In August, 2014 I participated in one of the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC) monthly meetings. If SCORM taught us anything, it was these two things: First, it taught us how to make real money in learning technology by formalizing how we commonly approach enterprise software; Second, it taught us how costly it is to not be mindful or deliberate about our choices, technical and political, at the specification and standards level.

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

Experience API

Answer: xAPI allows for learners to be identified by email address, Open ID or an account on some system, such as an LMS. In practice, most implementations either use email or an LMS account id. It’s possible that different Activity Providers might use different identifiers for the same person, for example accounts on different systems or different email addresses. LMS/LRS. Questions: Do you need a LMS and a LRS? In that case you might not need an LMS.
