Happy xAPI Campers. This event blew us away. All of the slides collected from the event are in the xAPI Camp Archives.

How to add attachments to an xAPI course in Lectora: xAPI Party demo

Experience API

Last Friday, we were excited to be involved in xAPI Party. The celebration marked the end of the xAPI Cohort run by Torrance Learning (their next Cohort starts February 1) and our Director of Products TJ Seabrooks gave a demo. Our solution was to build out a simple reporting system that let them view xAPI attachments as part of a grade book reporting system. Technical steps for sending and receiving attachments in Lectora.

Attachments in xAPI – TMYK

Experience API

At a recent event, we were surprised to find out how few people had heard of Attachments as a part of xAPI. So in that spirit, we wanted to pass along some helpful information when it comes to using Attachments in xAPI. An xAPI statement must have these 3 things: actor, verb and object. But xAPI statements can be much more expressive and include Attachments, such as media files or documents. As always, if you have questions about xAPI, let us know.

xAPI Camp – DevLearn 2015 is ONE DAY AWAY

MakingBetter

The first xAPI Camp at DevLearn, the first of four events we’re putting on hosted by The eLearning Guild , is nigh upon us. The Guild helped us launch xAPI at mLearnCon back in 2012 and they have been a steadfast supporter of xAPI. Last year was the first year there was an official xAPI Track at DevLearn and, together, we are upping that ante again (…in Vegas). We may even be doing karaoke Tuesday night, after xAPI Camp, because that is how we roll.

E-Learning 101: Straightforward Answers to Fundamental Questions—Part 2

ATD Learning Technologies

In October 2013, an eLearning Guild report showed the most common authoring tools were Adobe Captivate, TechSmith Camtasia, Articulate Storyline, Articulate Studio, and Trivantis Lectora, and those tools are still leaders in this market. Articulate Storyline, Adobe Captivate, and Lectora are all excellent choices for creating Section 508 courses for people with disabilities using assistive technology. Is there a preference or reason for choosing xAPI, AICC, SCORM over the other?

Review of #ASTD2014 International Conference and Expo

eLearning 24-7

Great to see Saba attend the event. dominKnow Claro (#1), Articulate (Storyline #2 and Studio), Adobe Captivate, Lectora and their other offerings, Ancile, iSpring, Litmos Author, TechSmith, Udutu, Allen Interactions and one other I can’t recall, but they were there. In several cases I had to ask if they planned to add Tin Can (xAPI). Strange. If you attended last week’s show in Washington D.C., you probably left feeling one of the following.
