Reflections on DevLearn’s xAPI Hyperdrive

MakingBetter

It was an incredibly exciting week to see the incredible gains and growth the xAPI community has had in the last year. Megan & I spent the bulk of our time helping the eLearning Guild with the xAPI Hyperdrive and the xAPI in Practice track. In this case, xAPI is used with Articulate products to create job aids that track interactions while relief workers — in this case, research interviewers — are out in the field.

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 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”). on a side note – I – me, was always told that xAPI and Tin Can are one in the same). ADL, IEEE and many people and businesses talking about this technology call it xAPI.

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. 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.

What is Cmi5? A new set of rules for xAPI

LearnUpon

In recent years another standard has emerged that has breathed new life and possibilities into the way in which your content can interact with your LMS and wider eLearning ecosystem. Initially called Tin Can, a more formal name of xAPI was settled upon. A new set of ‘rules’ for xAPI called cmi5 is set to harness the possibilities of xAPI making it even more impactful. Cmi5 is a “profile” for using the xAPI specification with traditional learning management systems.

The Average Joe imperative

E-Learning Provocateur

If Joe wanted to attend a virtual conference or a meetup, he could do so with ease; however, if he wanted to host a virtual conference or create a meetup venue, that was beyond him. Compare Second Life’s journey to that of other products that have emerged recently. I predict a similar fate for other emerging technologies, be it Tin Can, augmented reality, responsive e-learning, or whatever else lay on the horizon.

2019 eLearning Predictions – Hype Curve

The hype cycle theory holds that new concepts and technologies are initially little known, and thus little discussed, when they emerge from their Innovation Trigger – the point at which someone dreams them up, and only a small group of cognoscenti knows of them. The Trough of Disillusionment is crowded this year, with a number of new entrants joining a host of concepts that have been mired here for a year or more.

What is SCORM?

If all content is made to meet these criteria, then it becomes much easier to provide a matching system to host and deliver it. The ADL has emerged once more to steward in the new age of eLearning specification. This time they have sparked the creation of the Experience API, better known as xAPI or Tin Can API. Though xAPI is up and running, it will take a long time to dethrone the behemoth that is SCORM.

A new tool that is emerging in eLearning is called contextual guidance.
