I’m working my way slowly through the xAPI spec and comparing it to what Lectora publishes and (not surprising) it appears it would only work in two of at least four circumstances xAPI is supposed to support: mbox; mbox_sha1sum; account; and, openid.

BTW Lectora has code to support “ancient” browsers – which is good as some organisations resist or can’t update very often. The JavaScript in the xAPI Tincan functions makes use of arrow functions (=>). Arrow functions are a splendid addition to JavaScript but they are not supported in “ancient” browsers and not by Internet Explorer at all.

Is the belief that those that still use “ancient” browsers won’t be wanting xAPI?
