Any activity can generate Tin Can statements and have them delivered to a Learning Record Store, not just things based in a web browser. A mobile app, a simulation, a game, Human Resources software, and even real-world activities.
Use the Tin Can Registry to find usable, community-accepted URIs to use in your statements. If you can’t find the activities, activity types, verbs, extensions, and attachments that you need in The Registry, let us know.
If you have existing SCORM or AICC content that you want to generate Tin Can statements, take a look at our SCORM to Tin Can section. We’ve spent quite a bit of time thinking about this transition from SCORM to Tin Can.
We’ve put together a statement generator & validator for you to experiment with. Just enter your information, and a Tin Can statement will be generated. You can easily create your own statements. You can even paste statements into the generator and validate them, if you’re working with already-existing statements. See the statement generator here.
We’ve also built a Tin Can Bookmarklet that will allow you to send statements about any webpage that you choose. It sends a statement that says you “experienced” the webpage. Just install the bookmarklet, visit a page, click the bookmarklet, and a statement is generated. It’s a quick and easy way to see statements being generated.
You might like to keep your activities/content packages as contained units that can be imported into an LMS. If you wish to do so, you should know the following:
If the technical side of generating Tin Can statements is out of your league, then we have help for you. We’ve been enabling content to conform to learning standards for a decade. We’ve learned a lot during that time, and we’ve put it all into Tin Can Driver. Our software is where the industry turns to make their content conform to the standards, and now that includes the Tin Can API.
