LearnUpon introduces Tin Can support
Dublin, Ireland May 20th 2015 – LearnUpon, the world’s fastest growing cloud-based learning management system (LMS), today announces the introduction of support for Tin Can compliant course content. LearnUpon now supports the launching, tracking and reporting of Tin Can content, including the shipment of the resulting Tin Can statements to their customers’ preferred Learning Record Store (LRS).
In addition, LearnUpon now provides seamless integration with not one, but four of the leading Learning Record Stores on the market – Wax LRS by Saltbox, Grassblade LRS, WaterShed LRS and Learning Locker.
Tin Can API, which is also known as Experience API or xAPI, has been delivered by Rustici Software and is the latest standard in online learning. Tin Can provides a more flexible and detailed view of a learner’s progress than its predecessor SCORM, with the distinct advantage being its ability to track the learner’s individual activities or experiences both inside and outside traditional learning environments.
Commenting on the announcement LearnUpon’s CEO, Brendan Noud, said “We are delighted to announce the introduction of Tin Can to LearnUpon. Tin Can is the next step in eLearning technology and we are happy to make it available to all LearnUpon customers. Similar to our approach to SCORM support, when it came to Tin Can we wanted to remove all the pain often associated with importing 3rd party content to an LMS. LearnUpon’s Tin Can support allows our customers to import their content in seconds.
“In addition to providing Tin Can support we also wanted to provide seamless integration with the leading LRS platforms on the market, allowing our customers to combine the power of the world’s leading cloud-based LMS with the added functionality an LRS offers,” he added.
