Raptivity, the award winning rapid interactivity builder, has made an announcement that it will adopt the new Tin Can API in its upcoming release in early 2013.

The Tin Can API is the next generation of SCORM that allows learning content and learning technology to communicate with each other in a manner that records and tracks activities that happen as a part of learning experiences, both online as well as offline.

“We have always been committed to offering our customers with advanced and innovative eLearning solutions. Raptivity’s plan to support Tin Can will be a part of our ongoing process of equipping our customers with newly developing standards and latest technologies,” said Seema Chaudhary, President, Harbinger Knowledge Products Inc.

With the new Tin Can release of Raptivity, all the interactions in Raptivity Essential will have the option of publishing to SCORM, AICC or Tin Can. The upcoming release will give users the flexibility to pass very specific and granular information about the learning interaction back to the LRS which was not possible with SCORM tracking earlier. Moreover, Tin Can also has the potential to measure how a particular interaction has impacted the learner, thus making calculation of ROI possible.

For example, in the ‘Multipage Assessment’ interaction, SCORM would traditionally track the status of course completion and score, whereas Tin Can goes deeper and gives an in depth account of every bit of learning, thereby giving a true picture of learning interaction. Similarly, in the case of game based interactions like ‘Jigsaw Puzzle’, Tin Can enables data from these engaging activities to be stored in a proper context along with completion data from traditional courses.
