Example: Using Tin Can with an LMS


Overview – Tin Can API

This API is new for me. It sounds interesting but I am not yet convinced that it is somewhat more useful than the SCORM artificial thing was.

Will continue to learn 🙂

What is the Tin Can API?

The Tin Can API (sometimes known as the Experience API or xAPI) is a brand new specification for learning technology that makes it possible to collect data about the wide range of experiences a person has (online and offline). This API captures data in a consistent format about a person or group’s activities from many technologies. Very different systems are able to securely communicate by capturing and sharing this stream of activities using Tin Can’s simple vocabulary.

Previous specifications were difficult and had limitations (see Tin Can vs SCORM), but the Tin Can API is simple and flexible. It lifts many of the older restrictions. Mobile learning, simulations, virtual worlds, serious games, real-world activities, experiential learning, social learning, offline learning, and collaborative learning are just some of the things that can now be recognized and communicated well with the Tin Can API.

It’s important to know that we don’t own the Tin Can API. ADL is the steward of the specification. We just know this space so well that ADL asked us to help develop it. The Tin Can API is community-driven, and free to implement.

How does the Tin Can API work?

  • People learn from interactions with other people, content, and beyond. These actions can happen anywhere and signal an event where learning could occur. All of these can be recorded with the Tin Can API.
  • When an activity needs to be recorded, the application sends secure statements in the form of “Noun, verb, object” or “I did this” to a Learning Record Store (LRS.)
  • Learning Record Stores record all of the statements made. An LRS can share these statements with other LRSs. An LRS can exist on its own, or inside an LMS.

The freedoms of the Tin Can API

  • Statement freedom: the structure of “statements” using nouns, verbs and objects lets you record almost any activity. Think: “I did this.”
  • History freedom: the Tin Can API allows LRSs to talk to each other. LRSs can share data and transcripts with one another, and your experiences can follow you from one LRS (or organization) to another. Learners can even have their own “personal data lockers” with their personal learning information inside them.
  • Device freedom: any enabled device can send Tin Can API statements (mobile phones, simulations, games, a CPR dummy, the list goes on). A constant network connection isn’t necessary — occasional connectivity is fine.
  • Workflow freedom: tracking learning events doesn’t have to start or end in an LMS, it can start wherever the learner is and on whatever device they choose to use. Your content isn’t tied to an LMS.

The Tin Can API and Rustici Software

ADL, the keepers of SCORM, issued a BAA asking for ideas for the next generation of SCORM. We applied, and they asked us to research what the next-generation e-learning specification could/should look like. We then began gathering information about what the next evolution in the e-learning specification world should be in five main buckets:

We called this process Project Tin Can because it was meant to be a two-way conversation between us and the e-learning industry. It’s only fitting that the solution be named the Tin Can API – an elegant solution for letting learning systems communicate with one another. Check out a much more detailed explanation of Project Tin Can.

We not only realized the standard, we wrote it. Now that it’s in the community’s hands and actively developed by many developers and businesses, we are more engaged than ever. See the evolution of the Tin Can spec here.

We are helping people solve hard problems and working with the community to make the standard the best that it can be. Our minds are being blown daily, and we like it. We welcome the opportunity to make this better with you. If you have a question about Tin Can, we can help.

Mobile version


I’ve tested the Jetpack Mobile Version – I have activated this and deactivated it to find out what is the difference.

I’ve tested with a Samsung S3 (Android)
The difference: with the mobile version activated – you can change the view on your mobile – in the bottom there is a Link “view Full Site” or “view mobile site” – only with activated jetpack mobile version.

T Jetpack mobile activated-home
Jetpack-mobile activated- menue
Jetpack-mobile activated- menue

The mobile site is more compact and the menu comes not with a dark grey area from the left but a window including all subsites on the whole screen.

Jetpack NOT activated – menue
Jetpack mobile NOT activated - Home
