What the Tin Can API Means for Your Online Training Course

The Tin Can API is revolutionizing the way we look at communication in the e-Learning industry. Tin Can is a brand new specification for learning technology that makes it easier to collect data from many technologies, recording learning experiences like never before.

You may be wondering about this new form of communication, and you’ve come to the right place—Your Everything for e-Learning Place! Check out these answers to popular questions on how Tin Can works, what you can do with it and more:

  • So what exactly does the Tin Can API do?
    Tin Can tracks learning experiences, or any activity by the learner. In the e-Learning world, these learning experiences include mobile learning, informal learning, social learning activities, simulations and games.
  • How does Tin Can compare to SCORM?
    The Tin Can API is gaining popularity in the e-Learning industry. While SCORM is still being used, Tin Can allows you to do things that weren’t possible in SCORM. For example, you can launch e-Learning content outside an LMS, maintain control over content delivery and user experience, navigate your learner across different content and even prevent cheating.
  • Tin Can allows you to deliver a richer instructional experience that includes interactive and adaptive learning. Plus, it allows you to report data that was difficult to collect in SCORM, like team-based training and multiple scores.
  • What can I do with the data Tin Can tracks?
    Tin Can is valuable because you can converge job performance data and training data with Activity Streams, allowing you to identify what works and what doesn’t in your online training course. Activity Streams are a format for capturing activity on social networks. One example of Activity Streams is the news feed on Facebook.

One e-Learning authoring tool that fully supports the Tin Can API is Lectora® Version 11. Lectora e-Learning software publishes seamlessly to Tin Can. It’s an easy way to track and record your learners’ activities.
