MakingBetter

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. This has me reflecting deeply about what kind of future with xAPI we need to enable.

More about Todd here: [link] Below are excerpts from the interview: What are some of the key eLearning trends that you think would surface, or pick up, in 2016?

Initially I was going to write about my forecasts for 2020. Then I realized that the post would mainly focus on one major trend that will impact the space in such a way (good, I believe), and thus as a result, decided to hold off on my forecasts for 2020 – until Oct.

hey it is a Mashup of Emotions! Expo vendor pick up in terms of leads and traffic. Day two really picked up, with those same vendors telling me they had a great day, good leads.
