SCORM Vs. Tin Can API: Which is The Right Fit For Your Organization?

Developing effective eLearning content that translates into workplace performance matters! It requires a lot of effort, time and cost to create engaging eLearning content. Creating is not enough, it also needs to be well tracked, recorded and analyzed to measure the learning via Learning Management System (LMS). To make this happen, the LMS should be able to communicate with the eLearning content. It only happens when the developed content adheres to set of technical standards such as SCORM or Tin Can API. So choosing an apt platform to publish the eLearning courses must be well thought out.
