Webinar Q&A: Empowering Continuous Learning with the Experience API (xAPI)

Experience API

Questions: What is the common identifier that allows the xAPI to connect the data provided by the ‘activity provider’ to a specific user in the LRS? Answer: xAPI allows for learners to be identified by email address, Open ID or an account on some system, such as an LMS. For privacy reasons, a hashed version of the email address can also be used. How do you best see xAPI interfacing with an LMS? Which LMS platforms out there today best interface with xAPI?

TK Chat – Practical Uses of xAPI (Thursday, 9:15-10am). In December, Craig reached out to me with some questions about Learning Record Stores and how they relate to the xAPI specification.

However, we have to also be mindful of the billions of dollars to be invested in xAPI going forward. xAPI is about data interoperability.

Our tools can be many things to many people, with each product having its own set of data privacy scenarios to think through.
