Tin Can API in a Nutshell and Its Features
What is Tin Can Api?
Tin Can API, also known as the Experience API (xAPI), in a nutshell “is an e-learning software specification that allows instruction systems to speak to each other in a manner that records and tracks all types of learning experiences”.
In other words Tin Can API is the successor to SCORM which has been the de facto standard for packaging eLearning content to be delivered to corporate and education LMSs and promises to address the limitations of SCORM standards.
The Tin Can Api makes it possible to collect data about the wide range of experiences a person has (online and offline) and it blends a decade of eLearning experiences with technological advancements, to provide powerful learning experience to various organizations and learners alike.
Tin Can API Features
Tin Can Api brings to the table several new capabilities and features that SCORM is missing, such as:
- Tracking learning plans and goals
- Team-based e-learning
- Taking e-learning outside of the web browser
- E-learning in native mobile applications (M-learning)
- More control over content
- Solid security using Oauth
- The ability to track real-world performance
- The ability to track games and simulations
- Platform transition
