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 it could mean is a tighter relationship between learning activity and its outcomes. Meanwhile different needs among xAPI adopters in the learning technology business are becoming clearer.

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. Community Experience API / "Tin Can" Standards

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 I worked with business analysts, IT and communications teams on governance for these new technologies. Over the next four months, ADL brought the team and I on board to work on what would become the Training and Learning Architecture , or TLA. The first technology in that architecture was the Experience API. What is IEEE?
