Your One-stop Shop to Meet the Movers and Shakers in xAPI
A few years ago, a passionate group of industry professionals began working on a new specification that would replace SCORM, the common standard that has applied to eLearning for decades. Over the last few years, that idea has matured into the full and active specification known as the Experience API (or xAPI for short).
More importantly, that passionate group of industry professionals driving understanding and adoption of xAPI has also grown tremendously over the years. DevLearn has always provided a space for conversations and connections among this group, as well as a platform for the community at large to learn and understand how xAPI can enhance what is possible in learning and development.
This year at DevLearn, we will be providing a new platform for these discussions: xAPI Central.
What Is xAPI Central?
xAPI Central is a dedicated space in the DevLearn Expo Hall. In this area, you will be able to connect with a host of vendors that are already using xAPI in their products. You’ll be able to see actual applications of xAPI in practice and learn from the vendors that are building them. It’s your one-stop shop to connect with and learn from those who are leading the way for organizations around the world to gain insights into learning and performance with the Experience API.
The DISC Roundtable
Many of the vendors in xAPI Central work together through the Data Interoperability Standards Consortium, or DISC. DISC’s xAPI Roundtable will serve as the main hub of xAPI Central. At the DISC Roundtable, you’ll be able to learn about all of the different vendors and organizations currently supporting and leveraging xAPI. Informal discussions will be scheduled throughout expo hours so you can learn from and chat with recognized industry leaders in xAPI.
The DISC Roundtable is also where you’ll be able to learn about the work being done through DISC to shape the ways in which vendors and stakeholders will take xAPI into the future. It is a definitive source of credible, factual, and unbiased information addressing this growing community of vendors and organizational stakeholders, collaborating to make sure different enterprise software, applications, and data using xAPI work together.
Be a Part of the Future of Learning
The Experience API has grown from an idea to a full specification that provides new and exciting opportunities for learning. Whether you are new to xAPI or have experience using the specification, xAPI Central is the place to be to explore the opportunities that exist today and the possibilities that are being built for tomorrow.
