Experience API

Experience API is also known as Tin Can API or xAPI.

It is an evolved version of SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model).

Format

The format is quite simple: Noun, verb, object.

Entities

  • Activity Provider (AP): responsible to create and track learning experiences;
  • Learning Record Store (LRS): responsible to store the tracking data;
  • Activity: it is the object in the Noun, verb, object protocol. E.g. a book, an e-learning course, a meeting, some real object like a chair in a classroom, etc;
  • Actor: individual or group that does the action;

Notes

Verb must be in the past tense, although their display properties may be flexible in tense.
