The US-based Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) led the development of a project now called the Experience API, the purpose of which is to formalize the recording of learner interactions with learning resources. The non-ADL version of this is the Tin Can API, featured here by Rustici software (though so far as I can tell, Experience API and Tin Can API are the same thing). Tomorrow (Friday) will feature the launch of the Tin Can API version 1.0 specification. Thanks to Andy Whitaker for sending me the Tin Can information. The discussion lists have also been running a fair amount of Tin Can content yesterday and today, including a a Drupal 7 module (in PHP), JavaScript examples using Rustici Software's open source Tin Can JS library, and the ADL adopters list. You can also find open source Tin Software on GitHub.
