Launch external xAPI (Tin Can) activities from Moodle and track on a Learning Record Store (LRS). Compatible with Storyline, Captivate, and others!
Current versions available: 2
This plugin allows the launching of xAPI activities from a Moodle course and tracks the resulting xAPI statements with an external Learning Record Store (LRS). This plugin is compatible with activities implementing the Rustici launch method. This includes content created with Articulate Storyline or Adobe Captivate (among others).
Suggestions, bug reports, code reviews, and contributions are welcome! Please don't add comments or questions here. Use Github instead: https://github.com/davidpesce/moodle-mod_tincanlaunch/issues
Note: In an effort to focus our resources on this project, only supported Moodle and PHP versions will be developed and tested against. That is currently Moodle 3.9, 3.11, 4.0, and 4.1. For PHP that is 7.4, 8.0, and 8.1. As support drops from the providers of these items, we will drop support as well.
This plugin is part of set Tin Can.

I'm sorry if I've asked you this else where, but there seem to be a multitude of Tin Can plugins on Moodle, and for me this complicates things.
I'm now running a Moodle 3.3 platform and was wondering, will the 3.2 version of your plugin work on 3.3?
If not, do you have any idea when a 3.3 version will be ready?
Many thanks, and take care.
First of all, thanks for this great plugin, it's exactly what my organization has been looking for.
But I'm having a problem with it - I've connected it to my LRS (grassblade) and have been able to send statements successful from my moodle manager account, but when a student attempts to create a new registration they get an error message that says "This course is currently unavailable to students".
Is this something you've seen before?
I have a question. I dont know how to report my own verbs. i use the plugin and all of my own verbs like "passed","checked","completed" become in default verbs like "experienced" or "attempted".
is possible to report custom verbs? Can you explain me how to do to report with the plugin my own verbs?
thanks in advance.
The Learning Record Store is not available. Please contact a system administrator. If you are the system administrator, go to Site admin / Development / Debugging and set Debug messages to DEVELOPER. Set it back to NONE or MINIMAL once the error details have been recorded.
We have contacted our administrator but they don't know what is going on. Does anyone know what we might be doing wrong or if there is a bug somewhere?
Two things to check:
1. Did the admin set debug messages to DEVELOPER, try and launch the course and note down the full error message? What was that error?
2. Did you check that all the settings were populated correctly? We're there any settings where you were unsure what to put?
3. Are you using a fully conformant LRS? What happens if you connect the plugin to a free Watershed Essentials or SCORM Cloud account?
It may have what you're looking for.
Can you please provide me the steps or documentation how to Launch XApi course with Trax LRS
I wont able to launch Tincan course
