I Want Access to SCORM Runtime Data

tin can scorm access run time dataMost e-learning specs don’t require that runtime data be stored after a piece of content is completed. LETSI RTWS allows for attempt tracking, but this really isn’t anything close to what you can do with the Tin Can API.

The Tin Can API allows for everything to be saved in an LRS, and also allows for easy access to it. This opens up a whole new level of reporting detail. The LRS can query on any actor, verb or object that it wants to, or any combination of them. The amount of detail that can be pulled is only limited by the complexity of the statements that the activity generator chooses to generate. If the statements are more complex, then more data points are created.

There is an opportunity to store a significantly larger amount of data than before. It will be up to the LRS to determine different user levels and what amount of access users have to data.

There are loads of things that can be done with this data that couldn’t be done before. One example would be to pull reports on specific questions or sections, as opposed to just an entire course. Weigh in on what you think about this solution below.

    Is the LRS going to be a subscription based contracted plan? How does that work exactly?

    Any parameters on troubleshooting with inaccurate reporting if the need arises? It seems proper syntax is crucial for tracking (typos, etc.)… how are these handled?

    We haven’t formalized our terms for our hosted LRS quite yet. You can find more information on our LRS for LMSs and LRS for Organizations here: http://tincanapi.com/tin-can-solutions/

    Does TCAPI supports 2 direction data exchange?
    I’ll explain it better – My course is a continues one for every user. Every time the user enters the course, it should look the same as the last time he exited the course and allow him to change the results with new answers. It is more like a graded survey. how does TCAPI support this? can it save the results and when I enter the course it can load up these results so the user can see his last session?
