As part of the Tin Can API, you define your own activities, activity types, verbs, extensions and attachments as part of statements. All of these require identifiers that should resolve to a URL that provides all of the spec-required metadata for each. There should be a a place where everyone in the community can find identifiers that have already been defined. It creates problems if there are many different identifiers for a verb, activity, attachment or extension that mean the exact same thing. This makes Tin Can data very hard to work with. Data normalization is hard, and we all need to use a registry in order to work with Tin Can data well.

What is the Tin Can API?
The Tin Can API is an evolution of SCORM, a previous standard managed by ADL. Tin Can allows experiences of all kinds to be tracked using statements of a simple <subject> <verb> <object> form (e.g., “I did this”) that are then stored in a well-specified learning record store (LRS). Records of these learning activities are no longer confined to a single learning management system (LMS). Reporting systems can be granted access to all of the statements and can report against any combination of actors, verbs, and objects that they choose.
In conjunction with the release of the open Tin Can standard, all of Rustici Software’s products fully support the 1.0 specification, as well as offering backward compatibility with the beta versions of the API. With SCORM Cloud you can now:
Import, deliver and track Tin Can 1.0 activities- just like you do with your SCORM and AICC content
Receive Tin Can 1.0 statements in your hosted LRS available in your SCORM Cloud account
Backward compatibility to handle .90 and .95 statement, while also converting them to 1.0 statements
