What is the xAPI Standard and Why is it the Future of Learning Technology?

Docebo

Get ahead of the learning technology curve by enabling xAPI in your LMS. The same logic applies to choosing a learning management system (LMS) with the right course content packaging tools. AICC was formed during the early days of computer-based training to ensure the compatibility between learning content and early training technologies. Both SCORM and xAPI built off the framework AICC provided. xAPI – Meet the New Standard.

xAPI in Instructional Design

Web Courseworks

Jon Aleckson and I attended an xAPI conference on Friday, September 16 th in Chicago. But I’m interested in exploring the implications of xAPI for instructional design. We used to have to rely on pre to post data and A/B testing to determine whether a learning intervention was effective. This does not tell us what the learner was doing at each point throughout the learning intervention. xAPI could potentially change that.

New technologies are always cropping up with seemingly better and more efficient ways to accomplish our everyday tasks. Of course, not all technologies truly realize their purported promise, or are as applicable and far reaching as they might have originally claimed. Determining if a new technological approach is worth embracing is a challenge, to say the least. Fast forward 20 years, and we are seeing the beginnings of a sea of change being led by xAPI.

Learning Technology Defined: The Difference Between an LMS, LCMS & LRS

Adobe Captivate

Learning technology is constantly changing. The three types of learning technology I’m most frequently asked about are learning management systems (LMS), learning content management systems (LCMS), and learning record stores (LRS). For instance, some learning management systems (LMS) utilize xAPI to a degree, even though xAPI is more frequently associated with learning record stores (LRS).

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.

Scorm vs Tin Can (xAPI)

Elucidat

Whilst SCORM is the most widely used elearning standard, xAPI opens up a wealth of opportunity for tracking, personalizing and improving learning experiences. We take a look at how they compare… Both SCORM and Tin Can – now more commonly known as xAPI – are communications protocols for tracking learning related activity. They provide a framework and structure to pass data and information between learning content and technologies.
