IEEE LTSC xAPI TAG A-OK

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. Our start point is the xAPI 1.0.3 IEEE stamping xAPI would encourage adoption, particularly outside of the US.

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.

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 In 2003, the eLearning startup I worked for shuttered its doors as our customers moved to adopt SCORM, and we had no idea how to do that. My job was to help author SCORM 2004, focusing on how to develop content that would work in SCORM systems. on a side note – I – me, was always told that xAPI and Tin Can are one in the same).

This post is for vendors, developers and implementers of the Experience API and for anyone who may one day create something with xAPI. The choices made soon will ultimately impact what you will be able to do with xAPI 3, 5 and 20 years from now. In August, 2014 I participated in one of the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC) monthly meetings. The PAR wasn’t approved by the LTSC in that August meeting. xAPI is about data interoperability.
