Housekeeping:⁃not tin can 101previous webinars we did tin can 101 and technical aspects of tin can-this is about how industry is adopting and using tin can-will feature tools that are available and innovative uses of tin can-at the end we'll also talk about some early stage projects that organizations are starting to push through-will save some time at the end for questions and answer the rest after the webinar-post questions to chat room, Jeff and Andy are manning it-twitter hashtag for tin can
Where we are today:-Came out of research year and a half ago-Approaching 1.0 in a few weeks – that is when we expect to see adoption really increase-remember this is early, people constantly want real world, that is slow to come although it is coming more rapidly than anybody expected-learning solutions conference anecdote
-as we go through, use these examples as seeds for your imagination, what is now possible that you want to do in your organization-”Big Breakthroughs happen when what is suddenly possible meets what is desperately necessary” Tom Friedman.-Notice how we are moving beyond the page turner. We’ve broadened the ecosystem.-Learning should happen wherever and however it is most effective and most necessary.
Major traditional authoring tools jumping aboardMotivations:-More robust tracking-Mobile-Cross domain hosting-Track more details of user interactions
Traditional LMS vendors jumping aboard tooMotivations:-largely same as content vendors, mobile, cross domain, track more detail-Early adopters deserve a lot of credit as pioneering innovative organizations willing to take some risk to provide better products-Largely traditional vendors are using Tin Can to do what could be done before in a better way, SCORM parity-Rest of this presentation talks about new vendors doing innovative things with Tin Can-Surprising trend - Some are focusing on publishing activity streams rather than consuming them, more on that later
Curatr is an online platform that enables instructors to transform any digital content into a social game for learning. Virtual Classroom focused on a topic (for education or organizations). Learners can contribute learning objects to this room (really any webpage can become a learning object). The class then discusses why this is interesting, etc. (so commenting, collaboration are all part of this). The more a student contributes the more points they receive. The Tin Can API forms a core part of their platform, enabling enhanced tracking and personalization features to report back advanced usage data seamlesslyThis features lends itself nicely to Tin Can as well as badges.
