What L&D Professionals Should Know About Tin Can API | Upside Learning Blog | Current Updates | Scoop.it

The Tin Can API is an e-learning software specification that allows learning content and learning systems to speak to each other in a manner that records and tracks all types of learning experiences. As we all know, learning can occur in different forms and can happen anywhere (not necessarily through courses hosted on an LMS). Tin Can enables L&D professionals the ability to easily track, quantify and share data gathered from various learning experiences.
It’s great for tracking:

Mobile Learning
Serious Games
Simulations
Informal Learning
Real World Performance
