Current versions available: 1

This plugin provides a basic learner-centered reporting tool as a block. It allows an individual learner to see their most recent Tin Can tracked activity. It's intended more as a proof of concept than a final product at this stage and could provide a launch pad for further Tin Can reporting or social sharing of learning embedded within Moodle.


This plugin is part of set Tin Can.

    Hi Andrew, thanks for sharing your work smile

    Its installed without problems on my moodle 2.5. I'm assuming there are no dependencies between the plugins based on the design and architecture of Tin Can.

    Hi, I installed this block on moodle 2.6 and it is giving me this: "default value default value" and if I want to assign roles it gives me :You are not able to assign any roles here. So I wanted to know why this block isn't working for me??

    Hi, Can you post a screenshot of the error?

    It's not programmed to work with roles.

    For those interested in setting up Moodle with TinCan API, and/or facing problems with the setup, I have written a step-by-step tutorial at https://gist.github.com/abhi9bakshi/5760243fcadc4bb8bec7d156c2f302fc.

    Thanks for sharing these detailed instructions! One clarification for anybody reading those is that Learning Locker is not required for this plugin; you can use any LRS. I'm a contractor with Watershed LRS and normally use that for testing.
