As xAPI gains traction in the learning space and is incorporated into more authoring tools, apps, and enterprise systems, the specification is making a transition into easy, widespread use. However, if you’re looking to better use it at your organization, you may be wondering how to develop a strategy to implement meaningful xAPI.

This session will explore how to develop a strategy for data you want to capture by starting with the end in mind. You will examine why organizations have adopted xAPI, potential sources of xAPI data, and the impact of xAPI on existing resources. You’ll begin by considering your end goal and learn how to develop a strategy to get useful data from xAPI to support adaptive learning, reports, and visualizations. You will leave with an understanding of xAPI, common pitfalls in implementation, and tools to support good use, as well as a host of free resources to get started today.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The definition of xAPI, and its differences from SCORM
  • About common sources of xAPI data
  • How to outline a data strategy for implementing xAPI
  • How to identify resources to get started with xAPI
