With tool makers like Lectora and Articulate on-board with #tincanapi it is time to start paying attention. Everyday I hear of another company that is jumping in. Is your organization ready? It’s a game changer. Companies need to start looking at building a learning technology road-map so they don’t get left in the dust. We now have new ways of understanding how and what people are learning. You can look at real data for learning outside an LMS. But don’t take my word for it – join the conversation.
A good place to start is my conversations with Aaron Silvers of ADL and Tim Martin of Rustici at LSCon 2012. Then follow my interviews with Ali and Russell of SaltBox. Saltbox jumped on board early with Project Tin Can. Russell has been an active contributor in refining Tin Can. Saltbox has created some technology to record statements from the Tin Can API called an LRS or Learning Record Store. Saltbox has developed Wax LRS, a Learning Record Store with analytics using the Tin Can API.. Project Tin Can really made a big show at mLearnCon 2012 by creating a special area dedicated to Project Tin Can called Tin Can Alley. Several companies showed support and jumped on board. Companies like Float Mobile Leaning with their release of Tappestry, a social learning app that is first to hit the market place leveraging Tin Can. Tin Can created quite a buzz. One of the things I like about the eLearning Guild is they really showcase current trends and technologies. They have their eye on the ball as they say.
Last week I conducted a few follow up interviews with my friends at Saltbox. Saltbox is located downtown Seattle and is part of SURF Incubator and collaborative work space for startu-ups. Check out my conversations with @alishahrazad & @fugu13 of @saltboxservices about what is going on with the next iteration of SCORM.
