Las Vegas – Oct. 31, 2012 – Float Mobile Learning, the leader in developing custom mobile learning applications and mobile learning strategy, will have representatives available to discuss the Tin Can API in Tin Can Alley at the eLearning Guild’s DevLearn conference in Las Vegas Oct. 31 through Nov. 2.
The Tin Can API the next generation of SCORM, a brand-new learning specification that allows people to integrate activities such as mobile learning, simulations, educational and serious games, and performance support in order to track real-world activities in a secure, long-term format. Float has contributed to the specification, which is in version 0.95 as of this writing and expected to reach 1.0 in early 2013.
“Digital learning is all about learner empowerment”, said Dr. Gary Woodill, a senior analyst with Float. “Who knows better about what they have learned than learners themselves? The Tin Can API is a fresh new approach to tracking learning where employees can do it themselves, and take their learning records with them.”
Float representatives will showcase how its enterprise social network for learning, Tappestry, has been built using the Tin Can API. Float will also discuss the Tin Can iOS library they developed, as well as demonstrate how developers can create and view statements in learning record stores with the Tin Can Statement Viewer.
“Most learning by employees is informal, picked up through observations of others or from conversations,” Woodill said. “With Tin Can we now have a way of documenting that learning, and integrating it with the learning records maintained by more formal methods, such as the use of learning management systems.”
