Experience API

Shelly Blake-Plock announced last night via LinkedIn that he would be leading a Technical Advisory Group (TAG) for IEEE LTSC (Learning Technologies Standards Committee). In his own words, Shelly describes the work in this way: Our initial purpose is to create an IEEE technical report as a reference and implementation guide for xAPI 1.0.3. IEEE stamping xAPI would encourage adoption, particularly outside of the US.

IEEE LTSC xAPI TAG to vote on proposing IEEE standardize xAPI

Experience API

Facts: Next week, the IEEE LTSC xAPI TAG will be taking a vote about if and which aspects of xAPI 1.0.3 to propose to the broader IEEE for consideration as a standard. Opinions (mine): Somewhat important: standardization matters in that many organizations (particularly some outside the US) will care that xAPI has (eventually) been blessed by IEEE. PARs will then go through the IEEE approval process over a period of several months and steps. Political intrigue.

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. ” First, a small team will draft a Project Authorization Request for IEEE-LTSC. The team will submit this PAR in February for March evaluation by the IEEE New Standards Committee (NESCOM).

Slow Cooking – Our First Year of MakingBetter


When we first launched MakingBetter on January 7, 2014, it was with the intent that we’d mostly focus our efforts on a few small projects and workshops while beginning standardization work on xAPI with IEEE-LTSC.

Mea culpa

Experience API

There’s good work happening at the IEEE LTSC TAG xAPI , and we’re doing a bit of it. I’m sorry. My bad. Mea culpa. I wrote this all the way back in September, and I told you I’d follow it up with a further post one week later. It’s now eleven weeks and one day later and I still don’t have an answer for you. To be honest, I am struggling to discern which pieces of work would best support the xAPI community and Rustici Software.

Q&A - eLearning Standards Especially SCORM

Tony Karrer

There are a bunch of other standards by ADL (who is responsible for SCORM ), IMS , IEEE LTSC including CORDRAâ„¢ , LOM , Meta-data , etc. Note: ARIADNE, AICC, IEEE LTSC, and IMS all participate in ADL's work on SCORM). Now that I posted about Better Questions for Learning Professionals , I've been receiving questions via email from a variety of people. That's great! I like getting interesting questions. Some of them I just respond with an email.
