xAPI Shifting to 3rd Gear

MakingBetter

Between November 2014’s xAPI Hyperdrive and the xAPI track at DevLearn 2014, we hit our stride. We had people well outside of the ADL bubble talking about real world things things they were using xAPI to accomplish. What happened at xAPI Camp Amazon? We got Sean Putman to come in from Detroit to talk about what he all did with Altair’s software and xAPI. Russell Duhon talking about what it takes to run xAPI in Enterprise… at scale.

6 Brilliant Reasons To Adopt An xAPI-Enabled LMS

ProProfs

Now xAPI (Experience API), also known as Tin Can API, found its way into this list. Considering the significant benefits it offers, there is no surprise why everyone is going gaga over how xAPI can impact the online training landscape. Even though it’s still in its nascent stage, xAPI is creating a great impact on the learning industry. Within a relatively short span of time, many vendors now offer varying degrees of support for xAPI.

Transitioning from SCORM to xAPI

On October 5 th , 2017, the Department of Defense announced that its eLearning curricula would adhere to xAPI standards rather than the more traditional SCORM standards of the eLearning industry. I’m not going to delve deeply into the advantages and disadvantages of xAPI in this blog post. It completely misses the point of adopting the xAPI standard.

eLearning: xAPI is Geek Free and Ready to Go

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Megan Torrance      In my  previous xAPI article  I pointed to the emergence of "geek-free tools and platforms" as the hallmark that xAPI is beginning to achieve main-stream status.   In the 1960s, Dr. Bruce Tuckman proposed a team development model that lends some structure to the conversation about xAPI.   In the early Forming and Storming days of xAPI, there were no off-the-shelf tools that supported it.

Back in 2015 we published an article on elearningindustry.com about Rustici Software’s Experience API, aka xAPI, aka Tin Can API. It was one of many such articles in the wake of xAPI’s launch in 2013, and gave an explanation of how this new learning data tool worked and the great variety of systems it could theoretically gather and aggregate learning data from. An ideal source of information is The Elearning Guild’s September report, The State of xAPI Adoption.

An insider view of xAPI adoption figures from Rustici

Course Index

Just after our recent post about (s)low xAPI adoption in the L&D community, Rustici Software have published some behind-the-scenes figures on xAPI use in their own eLearning content delivery and testing service, SCORM Cloud. The fact that SCORM Cloud offers a built-in LRS (Learning Record Store) might be skewing the figures somewhat since it offers a turnkey LRS solution in an L&D world that hasn’t yet really joined up the xAPI/LRS implementation dots yet.

eLearning: Is it Time to Jump on the xAPI Bandwagon?

by Megan Torrance      xAPI and the Tin Can Project. Few eLearning developers have ever developed or seen an eLearning project that uses xAPI. However, given the fact that eLearning development tools and learning platforms now support xAPI, it may be the time to jump on the xAPI bandwagon.    What is xAPI?

The first xAPI Camp at DevLearn, the first of four events we’re putting on hosted by The eLearning Guild , is nigh upon us. The Guild helped us launch xAPI at mLearnCon back in 2012 and they have been a steadfast supporter of xAPI. Last year was the first year there was an official xAPI Track at DevLearn and, together, we are upping that ante again (…in Vegas). We may even be doing karaoke Tuesday night, after xAPI Camp, because that is how we roll.

Taking cmi5 adoption further by developing a Conformance Test Suite

Rustici Software

Over the years, our folks have participated in the working groups for, and the development of, standards as ubiquitous as SCORM, as forgotten as RTWS, and more recently xAPI. In 2010, we were awarded a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) from ADL to modernize SCORM Communication, an effort that became known as Project Tin Can, and ultimately xAPI. Since cmi5 was first released in 2016, there’s been a missing piece that has slowed its adoption.

xAPI, LRS – The Interview

eLearning 24-7

xAPI and LRS (Learning Record Stores) have been in the news and frankly everywhere within the e-learning industry in the past 1.5 In 2003, the eLearning startup I worked for shuttered its doors as our customers moved to adopt SCORM, and we had no idea how to do that. The name “Tin Can API” stuck around once ADL advocated to use the prototype produced out of “Project Tin Can” as the basis for the Experience API (“xAPI”). Right now, “Tin Can” refers to xAPI.

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

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. Designed specifically to cater to eLearning courseware designed for use in the aviation industry, the standards were adopted by course-providers to create eLearning content for all industries.

Why DoDI 1322.26 is important for the Experience API (xAPI)

Experience API

The latest DoDI advises all entities within the DoD to procure eLearning technology solutions that are compliant with the SCORM or Experience API (xAPI) specifications. After xAPI was released in 2013, it was hard for government organizations to purchase modern products as xAPI was not supported by the existing Instruction and there was no way to verify if an xAPI solution conformed to the specification. So how can I find an xAPI compliant product?

xAPI’s Tipping Point for Both Community & Industry

Since last year, I worked with IEEE to standardize the Experience API (xAPI) specification. Most of my work is with the IEEE-LTSC but recently a few other IEEE standards groups expressed interest in using xAPI. They’re looking at xAPI because it provides a way to share data across devices, related to people, in a way other systems can understand. This is exciting stuff for everyone with a hand in making xAPI what it is. Second, an xAPI Camp is happening.

Package & track elearning: why companies need both AICC & xAPI

AICC and xAPI (Experience API, or formerly Tin Can) are among the most important standards: whilst AICC has been around for a while, the xAPI is relatively recent. So why is AICC still important for elearning adopters? From Tin Can to xAPI: a core called LRS. What we used to know as “ Tin Can ” is now called xAPI.

Tin Can or xAPI – What Do You Call It?

There are some that call it “Tin Can API” There are some that call it “Experience API” (or xAPI for short). It caused confusion and slowed industry-wide adoption from the get-go. Today I would like to revisit a topic that I have written about in the past. To be honest, I’m actually quite surprised that this is still a topic that can be written about, which is perhaps why I feel the need to point it out (again).

Profile Recipes vs. xAPI Profiles

Experience API

What’s the difference between profile recipes and xAPI profiles? A “ profile recipe ” was an early attempt to make it possible for members of the xAPI community to publicly share how they were implementing an information model for a given experience in the hopes that others with a similar experience could use the same model. This is the primary difference between the two, with “xapi-authored-profiles” being more technical. xAPI Profiles.

The 3rd Gear

MakingBetter

As xAPI shifts into 3rd gear , with an early majority comes a need for a consortium that will steward xAPI into perpetuity — a table for other industries to sit and work out the ways xAPI will meet their particular needs. This will make it easy for folks buying software or hardware to see a stamp of approval — a neutral third party guarantees a product is 100% Grade A xAPI. With it, the industry that makes xAPI software and hardware will have to grow up.
