Recently, open source social networking sites have been widely used by institutions as an interactive mean to build community skills, provide teachers and students with online interactive learning opportunities, and improve students' academic performance. In Lebanon, some institutions have adopted learning management systems (like Moodle, Elgg…) as a cooperative learning platform in education. Moodle is limited to some basic features (user collaboration, group discussions, file sharing…). In contrast, Elgg does not provide full course management since it is not Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) compliant. Elgg could be integrated with next generation SCROM to form a complete management system. This paper proposes a solution to develop a TIN CAN Client Elgg Plug-In to integrate Elgg and Tin Can API which communicate through a Learning Record Store (LRS).
