    Really impressive, as I had about zero expectations that this would even function. What’s unbelievable about this add-in is that it is i) about one of two hits on “tin can” or “xapi” on plugins library (the other being one for the H5P connector); and ii) 20+ downloads in last 6 – 12 months this has been available. Makes me think that Tin Can doesn’t have much of a following (yet), but given SCORM is, or should be, dead or dying, would think only a matter of time.

    Suggests that there are fewer than 20 sites out there with i) non-PHP programmers managing them; and ii) any interest in sending standard “left a comment on my WP site” statements to an LRS.

    In any event, the plug-in does exactly what it should. I punched in some user codes for a GrassBlade LRS I have, and it worked just as you’d expect, so you can add that LRS to the list of “somewhat test” set-ups. (I used the API keys, etc. that were derived from spending $49.00 on that plugin — did see if more normal credentials would work or not.)

    Only reason not 5 stars, is that the plugin is just not that fully developed to allow for the range of interactions one might hope for. For instance, it did recognize the action of leaving a comment on a BBPress forum, but the title, but what showed up in the LRS as a “title” (I guess object of statement), didn’t seem quite connected to the specific page.

    As well, and in fairness to developer who certainly has not indicated otherwise, I use some random ratings plug-in (not the theme item specifically noted), and I can’t capture the action of “rating a post”, which is on my list of activities I’d like to track.

    In any event, all good. This plug-in would think deserves some more downloads and a few more reviews.
