Articulate Storyline Tin Can API 0.95 or 1.0 support?

Hello,

Do you have an estimate on when Storyline will support Tin Can API 0.95 or 1.0? Can you provide any demo content for us to test? We have built an LRS and have a lot of Storyline customers needing features/reporting that we can't provide them because Storyline is currently only 0.9 Tin Can API spec compliant. 

Thank you,

Ali

Hi Ali,

You're correct, Storyline currently uses 0.9. From what I'm hearing, we are planning to support 1.0, but we currently aren't able to share a time frame for when it will be available. 

Personally I would suggest using SCORM for the time being, if you want to hold out for 1.0 support. 

Thanks!

Hi Ali,

Not quite sure what you're looking for. Are you simply looking for Storyline courses you can test on your LRS? There's quite a few example files available from community members throughout the forum and there's a lot of free courses available for download as well.

You can download some free templates and courses from the following Articulate pages:

Downloads: Articulate Storyline

Getting Started with Articulate Storyline (tutorials, but contains practice files)

Or, if you'd like, you're welcome to try Storyline. With the trial, you'd be able to create your own demo and test it on your system. 

I hope this helps :) Have a great day, Ali!

Hello everybody, 

We have a temporary fix for so that Storyline can work with Wax LRS and other LMS tools/plugins like LearnDash and Grassblade! You can use this free Storyline converter: http://converter.saltbox.com so that Storyline xAPI (Tin Can) v0.9 packages will now include activity names. A few easy steps...

1 - Publish your xAPI Storyline course to a zip file.

2 - Upload your course package (zip file) to the website above.

3 - Wait for an email with a link to the new course. Download it.

4 - Upload your new course package to Grassblade/LearnDash.

This way, the reports in Wax LRS look much better and your Storyline courses now have names. Please email support@saltbox.com if you have any issues or questions. 

Thank you,

Ali

This is an huge issue for me right now too.  I'm at the point now where I'm about to drop Storyline and switch to another product.  I have submitted a feature request, but there has been no update so I'm going to assume that this is not a priority in 2014.  I find it hard to believe that this doesn't fall under the "need to have" category for the developers, considering every other product has this and Tin Can 1.0 is quickly becoming the new standard.

Hello - OK I just switched organizations and I have an opportunity to switch authoring tools.  Tin Can 1.0 is still a priority (even in the new organization).  I understand that it's not available yet in Storyline, however is this update on a project plan for the Storyline development team?  I'm sure you all forecast software upgrades at least 6 months in advance - No?  If you can't provide a date, I'd appreciate a general sense of how long it will be approximately, i.e. 6 months, 9 months, 1 year.....

Thanks!

Hi Melinda and welcome to Heroes!

Storyline Update 6 is available now which included a number of bug fixes, but not support for Tin Can API 1.0. If you'd like to see additional support in the next version of Storyline, you'll want to share your thoughts here in the form of a feature request.
