Tin Can API, a new e-Learning standard that allows for the tracking and recording of learning experiences anywhere, from any device, continues to gain traction as more and more e-Learning software providers commit to adopt.

Today, one of the world’s leading e-Learning software providers, Lectora, announced their commitment to support the Tin Can API in the upcoming release of Lectora Version 11. Lectora has also confirmed that the next release of CourseMill LMS (learning management solution) will include support for this new standard.

“Lectora joins an impressive list of other early adopters of the Tin Can API,” said Tim Martin, Partner at Rustici Software. “With the long reach of Lectora in the e-Learning industry, its adoption further solidifies the Tin Can API as the way forward for learning and performance tracking.”

The Tin Can API allows for a wide range of e-Learning systems to securely communicate with a simple vocabulary and capture a stream of learning activities. Unlike previous learning specifications that were difficult to implement and had numerous limitations, Tin Can is simple, flexible and more robust.

“The adoption of Tin Can for our products demonstrates our dedication to offer the most innovative e-Learning solutions,” said Peter Bray, Chief Marketing Officer at Trivantis Corporation. “We will continue to create and support the most advanced e-Learning developments so our clients can stay ahead of the curve with new, successful technologies.”

The Tin Can API can easily recognize and track a wide range of learning activities including:

1. Mobile learning
2. Simulations
3. Virtual worlds
4. Serious games
5. Real-world performance
6. Social-learning
7. Experiential learning
8. Offline learning
9. Collaborative learning
10. Traditional learning
