xAPI’s Tipping Point for Both Community & Industry

MakingBetter

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. What’s emerging are learning activities that look a lot more like work or straight up computing. ” First, a small team will draft a Project Authorization Request for IEEE-LTSC.

In August, 2014 I participated in one of the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC) monthly meetings. Once the request is made and approved by IEEE’s New Standards Committee, we begin the last leg of a journey that started with friends riding roller coasters in Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, OH back in 2009. The PAR wasn’t approved by the LTSC in that August meeting. IEEE LTSC is the appropriate place to figure out the timetables.

ADL, IEEE and many people and businesses talking about this technology call it xAPI. I was told xAPI is in IEEE’s hands? What is IEEE? IEEE is the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers — an international, industry standards body. IEEE also specifies USB and WiFi and a host of other standards we take for granted but help ensure things “just work” as expected. The community is all working on that together.
