This post is for vendors, developers and implementers of the Experience API and for anyone who may one day create something with xAPI. The choices made soon will ultimately impact what you will be able to do with xAPI 3, 5 and 20 years from now. I’m going to lay out options for how we can approach standardization and the reasoning behind them. In August, 2014 I participated in one of the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC) monthly meetings.

What is xAPI?

LearnUpon

Over the past three years, xAPI has emerged as the hot new standard for delivering online training. xAPI is often described as the next evolution of SCORM. While the SCORM standard isn’t going anywhere soon, xAPI has redefined some of the fundamental practices of tracking learning experiences. But what is xAPI? And why do so many experts believe it will soon become the default standard for eLearning content? What is xAPI? How xAPI works.

The Role of xAPI in Creating Powerful Learning Experiences for the Modern Workforce

Origin Learning

From early adopters who used archaic systems to set up a lesson that could be shared on one computer with an instructor to guide employees, to modern workplace learning that’s focused on xAPI -enabled mobile learning; eLearning at the workplace has traveled a long way. Have you wondered how all eLearning programs follow a specific structure and adhere to standards despite being unique learning elements? AICC and SCORM – The Core Standards of eLearning. Why xAPI Matters?

SCORM has long been the most common standard for eLearning content. In recent years another standard has emerged that has breathed new life and possibilities into the way in which your content can interact with your LMS and wider eLearning ecosystem. Initially called Tin Can, a more formal name of xAPI was settled upon. A new set of ‘rules’ for xAPI called cmi5 is set to harness the possibilities of xAPI making it even more impactful.

who serves as the Director of the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative, aptly put it ‘xAPI helps us put the puzzle together’. But What is xAPI Really? To truly understand Experience API or xAPI, we need to first talk of Shareable Content Object Reference Model(SCORM) – the popular protocol that allows learning systems to speak with each other. So, in 2013, the developers of SCORM released xAPI (also known as Tin Can). How Does xAPI Work?

Most discussions revolve around the technical aspects related to the definition and implementation of the standard, which is crucial at this stage of its evolution. However, in addition to the technical aspects, it is also important to have constructive discussions on the potential applications of this new standard in the learning and performance management landscapes. However, ‘Experience API’ is ADL’s official name for this standard.

Plume - e-learning & learning management systems

Since the beginning of learning management systems (LMS), SCORM has been recognised as the industry-standard model for progress tracking in online courses. However, in recent years, SCORM has been replaced by another more future-proof, feature-heavy standard. According to SCORM , “the Shareable Content Object Reference Model [SCORM], is a set of technical standards for eLearning software products.” What is xAPI? Differences between SCORM and xAPI.

Questions: What is the common identifier that allows the xAPI to connect the data provided by the ‘activity provider’ to a specific user in the LRS? Answer: xAPI allows for learners to be identified by email address, Open ID or an account on some system, such as an LMS. How do you best see xAPI interfacing with an LMS?

Tin Can API , also known as Experience API or xAPI, is generally considered to be the successor to SCORM , and expands the ability of the organizations that use it to gather data about the experiences, both offline and online, experiences that are quantifiable, trackable and shareable. The Shareable Content Object Reference Model – SCORM – has been the industry standard for over 15 years and has served as the foundation for many an LMS across its lifetime.
