Experience API (xAPI)

Experience API (xAPI), formerly referred to as tin can application programming interface (API), is the next-generation standard of shareable content object reference model (SCORM). Tin can APIs are standards that define how learning record stores (LRSs) track and measure informal learning activities. xAPI uses a simple sentence convention, “actor-verb-object,” to identify a learner’s activity (i.e., “John-read-article” or “Sue-completed-leadership training”).
