Experience API / xAPI

The “Experience API” (xAPI) e-learning specification, also known as the “Tin Can API,” is the product of an Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative (from the U.S. Department of Defense, www.adlnet.gov) to develop a runtime application programming interface (API) that captures data on a person’s learning activities other than using courseware (e.g., social and informal learning, and other activities). The development goals of the xAPI are to meet the expanding needs of online distributed learning and to be the next generation of SCORM (sharable content object reference model).
