702 BYOL: Tracking Video Behavior with xAPI

2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Wednesday, June 21


Marina 3

Organizations often spend a lot of time and money to create awesome videos for learning, but don’t track how effective the videos are. How do you know if your videos are effective? Are learners watching the videos? For how long? Having this kind of data would help you create better and more effective videos, so how do you track these types of measurements?

Luckily, you can track them simply by using xAPI statements within your videos. You can trigger statements when the video starts, if a learner completes the video, if they pause the video—as well as tracking where in the video they paused and even where in the video they left the page. All are valuable insights into how well your videos perform. In this session, you will follow along while you learn how to send over xAPI statements from any HTML5 video or even a YouTube video.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About xAPI statements
  • About jQuery video events
  • How to send a statement to an LRS
  • How to see the data from the LRS

Novice to advanced designers, developers, project managers, and managers.

Technology discussed in this session:
HTML, JavaScript, and xAPI.

Technology required:
Laptop running Sublime Text or any text editor.
