Why the Experience API (xAPI) Is Crucial to Your eLearning Success

Trivantis

The Experience API (xAPI) is an updated standard for tracking eLearning; it shows a more complete picture of your learners’ activity than SCORM does. xAPI was created by Rustici Software to replace SCORM (an earlier set of technical standards for eLearning software products). The ADL —or Advanced Distributed Learning—recognized the need for a set of standards to ensure that programmers write code that can play well with other eLearning software.

This standard is being developed by Rustici Software (with a world-wide active community participating and contributing) for Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) – the keepers of SCORM. However, ‘Experience API’ is ADL’s official name for this standard. More and more vendors (authoring tools, Learning Management Systems, social platforms, mobile games, and simulations) are adopting or testing this new standard.

In 1997, the DOD established the ADL Initiative to standardize and modernize training.

So SCORM is a system that lets different pieces of software share digital learning content. It doesn’t support the range of technology that learners need in the modern workplace. Sure, they can show you that a learner started or finished a module. But they won’t show you what’s popular among your learners, let you assign tasks to specific employees, or drive engagement.
