T107 Using xAPI to Blur the Lines Between Performance Support and eLearning

4:00 PM - 4:45 PM Wednesday, June 8

Expo Hall: Tools & Tech Stage

In this session, we’ll demonstrate how learning and performance support environments can leverage xAPI to create adaptations and branching using competency information, current sales data, performance review information, and more. You’ll learn of the available open-source tools that can easily import xAPI data from Excel files or reports to quickly import business information into an xAPI learning record store (LRS), and how off-the-shelf course development tools can leverage this information. You can be up and running in a matter of hours.
