  • Not just plumbing, but the history of plumbing
  • Excited?Well let me convince you that you should be.Plumbing is fundamentally important.When it’s there and it’s working well it just disappears, but when it’s not working it causes all kinds of problems.
  • This is where we started.Didn’t take long for people to realize this was a bad idea.“potty” comes from chamber pot
  • Start of some system. They worked but the could only go so far.As early as 1245 “The Great Conduit” brought drinking water from the Tyburn to the city“cobs” carried water to households who couldn’t connect to the conduits1582 a waterwheel inside London Bridge started pumping water from the Thames to parts of London200,000 cesspits in the city – designated places to empty the sewage instead of dumping it all out on the streetInnovations: sewers began to dump waste into the ThamesFlush toilets increased water load on the systemThen it all broke down:Cholera outbreaksGreat Stink 1858An overhaul of the sewer system was in order.
  • Joseph Bazalgette Chief Engineer of Metropolitan Board of WorksBBC calls the result one of the “Seven Wonders of the Industrial World”This is a big deal. The mundane, foundational infrastructure is massively important.
  • So, SCORM got us here.
  • We want to go here.We know how to build those buildings, it’s right in front of us, but the darn water and sewer systems can’t keep upTin Can will take us here.
  • So what is the Tin Can API?Next gen SCORMHistoryTLA – Experience APIV0.95Current adoptionSo why is this exciting?
  • Why we’re all here
  • Cost of technology is droppingRemoving friction to interoperability will help reduce it even farther
  • Relate to Amelia and MsMcMurryThousands of educational games in the app storeClassroom vision with teacher and dashboard
  • What percentage of learning happens in SCOs?Offline learning event examplesHow this might work in real world: tappestry, book scanner, bookmarkletAnything can be a learning experience
  • That’s just the start. In the mLearnDevCon presentation we’ll dive much deeper into the layers of the Tin Can OnionWe’ll talk about Learning Record Stores, Personal Data Lockers, passively capturing learning data, advanced analytics
  • REST-ish API, JSON payloadI Did This statements---broader expression of experiences, very rich expression---highly extensible

    • 7. “The British Medical Journal (BMJ) chose “thesanitary revolution” – connecting people’s homesboth to clean piped water and to sewers todispose of their waste – as the most importantmedical milestone since 1840.They thought it was more important thanantibiotics, vaccination or the discovery of thestructure of DNA." “Sewerage Works: Public Investment in Sewers Saves Lives
