SCORM stands for Sharable Content Object Reference Model. It is a set of technical standards for e-learning software products. SCORM describes a technical infrastructure that programmers can use to create content and software that “play well” with each other. It is the de facto industry standard for e-learning interoperability. Specifically, SCORM governs how online learning content and Learning Management Systems (LMSs) communicate with each other. SCORM does not speak to instructional design or any other pedagogical concern — it is purely a technical standard.
TinCan API (sometimes known as the Experience API or xAPI) is a new interoperability specification for learning content that makes it possible to collect data about a wide range of, online and offline, learning experiences related to a person. This API captures data in a consistent format about a person or group’s activities from various sources. Different systems are able to securely communicate by capturing and sharing this stream of activities using Tin Can’s vocabulary.
Importing SCORM/TinCan content
SCORM/TinCan content can be imported to TalentLMS in a straightforward way. As an instructor, access a course and then either drag-and-drop the SCORM zip file directly into the content area (1)...
... or click to add a SCORM/TinCan unit (2).
Select the file you want to upload from your computer (3), wait for it to load and then select between embedded and pop up option (4). You are also able to change the dimensions of the file (5). When you are done, click save and that's it, you have your SCORM/TinCan content added to your course.
Reporting on SCORM/TinCan content
SCORM/TinCan objects have their own completion rules. As soon as the completion conditions are met, the SCORM/TinCan unit is automatically completed for the user. In case that the SCORM/TinCan object includes a quiz, the user's score is reported to the LMS.
SCORM objects have their own reports section (6).
You can even view the solved SCORM quizzes, see the questions analysis and export them to Excel, as described in this article.
As far as TinCan objects are concerned, you can track the relevant activities through the Timeline (7).
Selecting the type of activity you want (8) you can see all the relevant information and export it to a csv file (9).
