xAPI has been around for a few years. You’ve been hearing about what it is and how it’s used in a conceptual sense. But what about the real world? This session will discuss a company that has made a long-term investment of time and money in existing learning technologies. They were interested in leveraging xAPI but had questions: What could they track with xAPI? Would they need to scrap everything and redesign from scratch? Could they use their current rapid development tools, or did they need to learn a new technology? What benefits could they realize from xAPI?

Rapid development tools, LMSs, and LRSs are helping in the transition to a period of widely used xAPI. In this transition, what are the design considerations and best practices for incorporating xAPI into online content? How can you maximize existing development tools while taking your courses to the next level? This session will go beyond concept and look at how you would apply xAPI using three development tools. After that, you will look at the results in a couple of LMS/LRS tools. You’ll learn how problems were solved by identifying the right content and enhancing it using rapid-development tools. After feeding the content into the LMS/LRS, you will see what reports you could get. You’ll see real-world examples that can be used to make business decisions.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to incorporate xAPI into your existing rapid development toolkit
  • Why you should incorporate xAPI into your next rapid development project
  • Where to start looking for relevant xAPI data
  • Strategies to ensure consistent and valuable data beyond completion status and passing score
