Understanding Tin Can API & How to Upload a Tin Can Course to ProProfs




Tin Can (also known as Experience API and xAPI) is SCORM’s successor, a software specification capable of tracking the complete learning experience. In a nutshell, Tin Can registers learner activity and stores data (in Learning Record Store) for further use. 


Among the several benefits, Tin Can allows to report multiple scores, in-depth test results, complete control over the content, support mobile learning, complete platform transition (i.e., computer to mobile), track simulations, track online & offline learning,  track adaptive learning; track blended learning and much more.
