MoodleLaunch: A plug in for Moodle that allows the launch of Tin Can content which is then tracked to a separate LRS.

Background

The Tin Can API specification was released in April 2013 as a replacement for SCORM. Tin Can allows for tracking of any learning experience. Tin Can was designed on the premise of a distributed system communicating via API calls over the internet. This means that whislt it is possible to include a Learner Record Store (LRS) and reporting tools inside an LMS like Moodle, it is equally possible for the LRS and reporting tools to exist as seprate entities outside of the LMS.

This is the first of a series of small bite-sized projects to add Tin Can capability to Moodle. These projects will assume that a seprate LRS and reporting tools will be used. This will allow us to take advantage of open source Tin Can LRS and reporting tool projects outside of the Moodle community. This first project will deal with launching Tin Can e-learning from Moodle.
