Tin Can Basics and OverviewSo what is the Tin Can API?Next gen SCORMHistoryTLA – Experience APIV0.95 - > 1.0Community participationCurrent adoptionSo why is this exciting?
This is the exciting part, just beginning to explore
Diagram 1 – LMS as magical cloud of learning that learners enter intoThis is our corporate view of learning
Diagram 2 – LMS as magical cloud, but user goes to other places for learningBlogs, articles, youtube, schools, seminars, conferences, peers, booksThis learning happens, it is the majority of how/where people learn, but we don’t have any visibility into it, we don’t track itLearning happens at the point of need, in many contexts, now we can capture it
Diagram 6 – same as Diagram 5, but arrows labeling them “Learning Record Store (LRS)” and “Training Delivery System (TDS)”With Tin Can we can separate these components, the LRS and TDS
Diagram 7b – LRS and TDS bubbles, now surrounded by many of the other LMS feature bubbles and also HR, BI, Reporting, etcbest of breed components bolted onInherently open for integration with HR Systems, Business Intelligence Systems, Reporting SystemsEver wanted to just mix and match parts of different LMS’s and systems? We’re starting to be able to do that.tin can is inherently opendata that goes into the LRS can be read by any other system through an open protocolwe going to see an explosion of tools capable of interacting with this dataLet’s look at some new models
Diagram 14 – a real world exampleVandy:-Using LRS as center of architecture-Previously many LMS’s, transition from LMS being the center to LMS being one source of learning data-Data to come in from many other places-Independent reporting tool possibilities-Tying learning outcomes to organizational pillar goals
Diagram 15 – PDLLRS in employer 1 bubbleLRS in employer 2 bubbleLRS in school bubbleElective informal learning experiencesAll feed into PDLCan we represent different views of the data to different audiences (or should that be a separate diagram?)We’ll need to think about this one some
Aggregate data from many sources
Looks for trends and unexpected results
A clinic that conducts performance monitoring will have a lower aggregate risk profile score than a clinic that doesn’tComparing performance observation checklist data with clinical data
Analyzing learning paths (and departures from them) during a learning experience
-vendors in learning industry jumping on it. -but most at SCORM parity level. -such fundamental change introduces big disruptive effect and spurs innovation for the industry. -vendors tangential to the eLearning industry are now entering it as a market
How does SCORM work in conjunction with Tin Can? – TDS or content conversionCan you achieve parody? – absolutely, SCORM parity with Tin Can was minimum requirement, no content packaging or sequencing thoughBackwards compatible?Forwards compatible? – more just different, like VHS and DVD, movie can exist on either, DVD can do more, but you can’t put your DVD in your VHS player
