Saltbox launches exciting new features in Wax LRS and the release of a new Tin Can content launching platform.
Wax LRS is a Learning Record Store based on the Tin Can API (Experience API), and it helps you measure the impact of learning on performance using analyses and visualizations. Today, hundreds of organizations use Wax LRS to store and analyze their Tin Can data with high reliability and scalability.
New features make it easier to understand all your learning data in one dashboard (Figure 1). Wax LRS now features a new statistics section that summarizes the most- and least-popular learning activities, so L&D leaders can quickly identify the volume of learning experiences and save time and money on training resources that aren’t being used.

Saltbox CEO John Delano stated, “We have to make it very easy for learning professionals to analyze data, improve training, and contribute to all forms of learning.” As a result, Saltbox has fitted Wax LRS with an entirely new user interface to make analysis and navigation easier. In addition to these changes, Wax now supports reporting for Storyline and Lectora Tin Can content.
Another exciting addition to the list of current analyses in Wax LRS is question analysis. Wax now provides learning analytics to help trainers and instructional designers measure the quality of the questions being posed on assessments.
Saltbox is also unveiling a new product to help L&D professionals launch Tin Can course packages from any content management system (CMS) with LTI capability. The results can be stored in any Learning Record Store. This is a great solution for people who don’t want to launch content from a learning management system (LMS), or who have a CMS that handles all their user and course management.
Saltbox is based in Seattle, WA and was founded in 2011 to enable organizations to provide better learning experiences for improved business outcomes. The company founders have executive experience in learning and development, sales and operations, and software development. Saltbox is also a major contributor to the Tin Can API standard.
