302 Are They Learning? Using xAPI to Correlate Training Performance
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Wednesday, October 23
Data and Measurement
Good courseware engages the user with multiple elements. From video to audio to the venerable drag-and-drop, you need to make sure your content is doing the job. But is your audience actually learning anything? More importantly, are they learning the lessons you need them to? And if they are, do you have the tools to prove that to your leadership?
In this session we will look at how you can use Experience API (xAPI) to capture data from the various elements of your content into a single, uniform format in the learning record store (LRS). Then, by looking at real-world example pages, you'll learn how you can start analyzing results to see which activities contribute most to learner success in the course. You'll also look at how you can compare key performance indicators (KPIs) to course engagement and success to show your leadership that your content is helping to improve performance, satisfaction, or whatever your goals may be. With this data in hand, you can craft your courses to ensure that they accomplish their goals and make the bosses happy.
In this session, you will learn:
- What xAPI is and how you can use it in your courses
- How to collect data on student interactions with your content
- How to report on the data you've collected
- How to use xAPI to compare content consumption to performance
- How to combine data to ensure that your activities are meeting their goals
