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.

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. xAPI or Experience API is the outcome of Project TinCan that started in 2010. xAPI or Experience API is the outcome of Project TinCan that started in 2010.

eLearning Trends for 2018

Association eLearning

Speaking of flexibility, xAPI is an important part of that process. xAPI helps with integrations and reporting between various platforms. With xAPI, administrators don’t need to worry about losing any data between platforms. The Learning Record Store (LRS) is an important feature in xAPI. As previously stated, xAPI is an important part of tracking offline activities. Every year around this time, we discuss the eLearning trends for the next year.

Y Is xAPI So x-Zillerating?

ATD Learning Technologies

xAPI promises far more than its predecessor, the SCORM standard, which tracked e-learning activity in learning management systems. While xAPI is not new in its technology, it is gaining greater traction in the L&D field because of what it gives us: the ability to share across platforms as well as the capacity of measuring far more than e-learning modules. xAPI starts with the learning record provider. Take a look inside “Making Sense of xAPI.”

But what is it, and how will it affect xAPI and Learning Record Stores? Will GDPR affect xAPI and Learning Record Stores? xAPI as a specification isn't really impacted by GDPR, although GDPR will affect how it's implemented in certain situations. According to the xAPI specification , implementors are encouraged to use HTTPS-Only for secure communication, but that’s an implementation recommendation—not a requirement and has nothing to do with an actual xAPI statement.

ATD Learning Technologies

At the ATD 2017 International Conference & Exposition , you’ll see more xAPI (Experience API) in action than ever before: more sessions, more vendors, and more real working examples that take you beyond the confines of simple SCORM e-learning tracking. xAPI is an open specification for storing and retrieving records about learners and sharing that data across platforms. This has made many learning professionals eager to get started with xAPI. Sick of SCORM yet?

The What, How and Why of xAPI in Corporate Learning

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?

If you’ve attended a learning conference recently, you’ve heard the buzz around learning record stores (LRSs) and the Experience API (xAPI). With so much attention focused on the potential, organization leaders look for ways to use data interoperability. Many are still having difficulty identifying a practical starting point.

By leveraging technologies like AI, machine learning and the xAPI standard, innovative analytics tools are making it possible to measure learning in ways that create significant business value. However, they often lack dedicated resources, or attention, or both. This is further complicated by the growing adoption of the xAPI standard for learning activity tracking. Use of xAPI increases the typical data set by multiple folds. xAPI adoption is still in process.

Why cmi5?

Experience API

The part of the xAPI community that loves the freedom to live outside of an LMS, the vast majority of it, loves cmi5. Repeatedly on calls with clients wanting to create products with xAPI, I would say, “Sure you can capture any data you want, that isn’t a problem, but the hard part is getting the endpoint, and even harder, the credentials.”. These clients were excited about xAPI, and they were already bringing their learners to the list of tasks available to them.

The TinCan announcement got a lot of attention, because it is more open and it facilitates the recording of learning experiences outside the LMS (mobile!).
