xAPI holds enormous promise for bringing data-driven decision-making to the practitioner’s level—if you can make it happen in your organization. Countless sessions attempt to address how xAPI data can assist with ROI, but few outline an actual implementation of xAPI from the ground up. So what does a real xAPI implementation story look like, and what lessons can you learn from it to inform your own use of xAPI?

In this session, you’ll hear the story of how xAPI was implemented in a highly conservative, risk-averse industry in one year. You’ll find out how Travelers training teams partnered to get buy-in from stakeholders, implement projects that proved xAPI’s potential, develop apps that lowered the barrier to entry for non-technical developers, and establish best practices for data capture. This is a story that people looking at xAPI should hear. Learn from these successes, avoid these mistakes, hear that it can be done, and learn how.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About xAPI’s barriers to entry for non-technical training professionals
  • Ways of making it easier to “do xAPI” without a lot of technical training
  • About activity ID and data formulas that facilitate reporting, reduce risk of data overlap, and align strategy at an enterprise level
  • About the different kinds of ROI that can be achieved with xAPI data


Developers, managers, senior leaders (directors, VP, CLO, executive, etc.), and application developers.

Technology discussed in this session:

xAPI, JavaScript, and learning record stores (LRSs).
