xAPI Camp: The Vanguard of xAPI’s Possibilities
Tuesday, October 24
xAPI Camp is a fast-paced day filled with case studies, problem solving, and networking. Here’s an outline of what you can expect:
8:30a — 9:00a
9:00a – 9:30a
How to Talk xAPI
We’ll make sure everyone is current on the buzzwords and lingo you’re likely to hear and use when talking about xAPI and the projects that use it.
9:30a – 10:00a
Each xAPI Camp has a particular focus. For DevLearn, we’ll both examine the practices that are defining the new normal in learning organizations and peek into the projects that push our profession and industry forward. This talk will put those two frames into one focus.
10:00a – 10:15a
10:15a – 11:00a
Leading practitioners and industry experts will share bite-sized overviews and insights into the big ideas, big challenges, lessons learned, and case studies that exemplify the best in how people work with xAPI today. Each talk is 7 – 12 minutes.
11:00a – 12:00p
During the morning’s talks, facilitators and moderators will collect questions from you and other participants to guide where conversations and working sessions need to focus. Groups will include xAPI experts to participate in or guide discussion.
12:00p – 1:00p
1:15p – 2:15p
As in the morning session, more leading practitioners and industry experts will share bite-sized overviews and insights into the big ideas, big challenges, lessons learned, and case studies that exemplify the best in how people work with the xAPI today. Each talk is 7 – 12 minutes.
2:15p – 2:30p
What do we do with the rest of today?
2:30p – 2:45p
2:45p – 4:00p
Track 1: Design Jam
Do you have an idea that you’d like to map out with experts in the room? Something to take back to the office that will get people talking about the big challenges you need to tackle? You ideate. We’ll facilitate.
Track 2: Shop Talk
Do you want a deep dive on a particular topic or question? Do you want to play with a demo of something you heard about today? Do you need to do some real planning on next steps? This track is for you.
4:00p – 4:15p
The focus at xAPI Camp is on action. We’ll share what we each learned and find support for each of our next actions following the event today.
4:15p – 4:30p
Any final questions, thoughts, plans, and/or shameless plugs are shared, and then we bid adieu.
xAPI Camp returns to DevLearn2017 as the must-attend pre-conference experience dedicated to the Experience API. xAPI Camp is the second of TWO full days available to accelerate your work with this transformative technology and to showcase what’s possible with xAPI. On Monday, October 23, we’ll be hosting a full day dedicated to designing for outcomes using xAPI.
On both days, you’ll be connected to answers you can act on and an incredible community of practitioners that will help you make an impact.
NOTE: Each day of xAPI Camp stands on its own, so you can participate in either day’s activities or register for both days.
