Note: This is the version of the bookmarklet that works with Tin Can API version .95.
The Tin Can API lets you record self-directed learning experiences, such as reading a web page.
The Tin Can Bookmarklet is a simple tool that shows a little bit of that power. A bookmarklet is a simple application that runs inside of a standard internet browser bookmark. The Tin Can API bookmarklet lets you record any webpage that you “experience” to an LRS.
Here are the steps to get going:
To generate your bookmarklet, just enter an email address, the LRS endpoint where you’d like to send your statements, and the LRS credentials. By default, the LRS info in the bookmarklet is set to send statements to our public LRS.
If you’d like to use the bookmarklet to send statements to your own SCORM Cloud LRS, you can get your endpoint and credentials by following the directions on the Building With SCORM Cloud + The Tin Can API page.
Note: when sending statements to the public LRS, remember that everyone will be able to see the email address that you choose, as well as the web sites that you generate statements for. Don’t do anything embarrassing!
