What’s All the Buzz About the Tin Can API?
What is the Tin Can API? Well, in a nutshell, the Tin Can API (a.k.a, Experience API or xAPI) is a new specification for learning technology that makes it possible to collect tons of data on just about anything somebody does either on a computer or not on a computer (e.g., attending a seminar, took a basket weaving class at church).
