ECO715 Supporting Adaptive Learning Ecosystems Using the xAPI

2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Thursday, March 17

Ecosystem - Technology


The Experience API and emerging technologies afford organizations the opportunity to create adaptive learning ecosystems of functionality to support learners. Designing learning ecosystems and adaptive systems requires a shift in design approaches. While the Experience API can provide common tracking similar to SCORM for a learning management system, it really extends the ability to collect data with value between systems. This intersystem data value, combined with new design approaches, unlocks a number of use cases.

In this session, you will explore design approaches and models for ecosystems and adaptive systems. Key use cases will be defined and explored in detail. Additionally, you will learn about a case study that shows measurable efficiency of adaptive learning. You will learn about open-source technologies in a reference-adaptive learning ecosystem to enable exploration of practical examples. Finally, you will explore data that shows efficiency of adaptation in both individual and group settings.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Design approaches for ecosystems using the xAPI
  • The fundamental use cases that can be produced in an adaptive learning ecosystem
  • Approaches to define value in learning ecosystems
  • Open-source example tools and technologies you can use for your own ecosystem pilots

Novice to advanced project managers, managers, and directors.
