This week we’ll be hosting #TalkTech along with @BLPindy. This is a twitter chat that happens every Thursday from 2:00-2:30 pm CT (3:00 – 3:30 ET). Follow @projecttincan and the #TalkTech hashtag if you want to participate in the chat. Andy (@tincandy) and I (@meganbowe) will be there too. See it’s a party, why wouldn’t you want to come?
Here’s what we will be discussing, hope to see you there!
1. What is the difference between the Tin Can API and SCORM?
The Tin Can API is often called the next generation of SCORM, what does that mean? Tin Can focuses more on a person’s activities than how content is structured or the mechanisms to make it move, like SCORM does. Tin Can is a paradigm shift in that it records actions as a tie between learning and performance. Content from anywhere may or may not be relevant to an interaction and Tin Can can deal with either.
2. What does Tin Can mean to your role and industry?
Everyone is dealing with different challenges and very different needs to support people in their organizations. Thinking about how this could directly affect what you currently do, what’s the biggest challenge you have in tracking learning and supporting performance? How can easily sharing data about learning activities between tools make this better?
3. Where does it create new possibilities?
Tin Can enables games, mobile applications, simulations, virtual worlds, social environments and beyond to use a shared language about learning events that all of the systems can understand. There’s potential to create continuous improvement cycles for all types of training and learning experiences with Tin Can data. Where does this ignite your imagination? What types of learning experiences would you like to tie to real world performance?
