When creating eLearning courses the content that you are offering is considered to be of the utmost importance. After all, the information being shared and the overall educational experience is what truly matters in terms of instructional design. However, having the tools to track what users are doing, how they are performing, and allow open communication between learning systems is essential. The question is, how do you achieve this in a technological era, wherein eLearning must constantly evolve to take full advantage of the current tech climate?
The answer is TIN CAN API, which is also known as Experience API. This software enables you to track a wide variety of information on a number of different platforms, including those that weren’t included in SCORM‘s list of capabilities. In this article, we’ll delve into the benefits that TIN CAN API can offer organizations of any size, both in the educational and business sector.
SCORM vs TIN CAN API
SCORM (sharable content object reference model) is the predecessor to TIN CAN. In many respects, TIN CAN offers a wide range of advantages that are not provided by SCORM. For example, while both options give you the ability to track user completion and the time they took to finish a task, only TIN CAN provides you with the capability to view in depth test results, work outside of a learning management system, and easily transition between platforms. As such, many eLearning content creators and instructional designers are now switching to TIN CAN API, due to the fact that it seems to be the next stage in the natural evolution of online learning.
