Experience API (xAPI)

Formerly referred to as the Tin Can API, the experience API is the next-generation standard of SCORM. Tin Can APIs (application programming interfaces) are standards that define how informal learning activities are tracked and measured by learning record stores (LRS). Experience API, also known as xAPI, uses a simple sentence convention of “Actor, Verb, Object” to identify a learner’s activity – for example: “John-read-article” or “Sue-completed-leadership training.”
