Integrate LifterLMS with an Experience API (Tin Can) service. Manage your LifterLMS competencies and activities, your H5P Content, as well as uploaded and linked Articulate, Captivate, iSpring or Lectora e-learning courses.

Designed for use with any xAPI compliant remote LRS service

LifterLMS xAPI ensures your website remains light and fast by not bogging down your LifterLMS database with xAPI learning records.

By moving the LRS database and service to an external platform, we’ve removed any custom hosting requirements so you can continue hosting LifterLMS in a standard hosting account.

Our recommended LRS services provide daily data backups as part of this exclusive LifterLMS xAPI fixed-cost service plan so you can rest knowing you will not be paying for data overages or need to monitor monthly data limits.

Top Benefits

The ability to report to any LRS through xAPI (TinCan) from any of the following content types:

  • LifterLMS courses, lessons, quizes and quiz questions
  • Uploaded elearning courses built with authoring tools such as, but not limited to, Aticulate Storyline 360, Storyline 2, Studio 2, Studio 360, Captivate, Lectora, iSpring and any other product that produces an xAPI 1.0 or above outputted ZIP file
  • Linked web pages, content or courses that reside anywhere online and allow you to use or resell them
  • H5P content (rich interactive content) for tracking videos, video interactions, and any H5P content that send a completion status
  • LifterLMS YouTube and Vimeo native Embed Video URLs (embedded in Lessons) as well as YouTube and Vimeo URLs added into the post content (via the “Add Media” button).

Control your LifterLMS lesson progression from your uploaded or linked e-learning, your LifterLMS embedded Vimeo or YouTube videos, your embedded H5P interactions, or any combination of these in the same lesson.

LifterLMS xAPI removes the Mark Complete button until the xAPI content, H5P content, or videos send a completed status. You control this feature from any single xAPI content item you choose, or control it at the lesson level.
