Traditional Learning Management Systems (LMS) have long provided reports of who took what and what they scored. In the world of formal compliance driven content, that’s what we all cared about. Industry standards such as SCORM allowed learning content to be developed and hosted in any LMS. As LMSs became more prevalent in the extended enterprise, and organizations realized that learning happens EVERYWHERE, a new way to capture that learning would be needed. The Experience API, also known by some as “Tin Can” was born. Took a course? – check. Watched a video? – noted. Wrote a Blog post? – tracked. The options for quantifying, tracking and reporting user interactions in the system, and outside of the system are almost limitless.
