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. Organizations interested in counting on xAPI for their business needs must have a way to know the tools work. As well, people using these tools should be recognizable as a professional class that reliably works with xAPI.

Tin Can” is a trademarked name owned by Rustici Software.
