LS903 The Missing Link: Data Interoperability from Learning Systems to Operations

8:30 AM - 9:30 AM Friday, March 18

Data and Measurement


SCORM, the xAPI, cmi5, and a host of other learning data standards exist and have widespread acceptance in the learning community. How can these standards extend beyond the learning world into the realm of enterprise technology? What the industry needs now is a distinct and real conversation on how to align learning technology with the technology used by the rest of the enterprise.

In this session, you will learn how Float, working with a number of industry and government stakeholders, has charted a path to bring the worlds of enterprise technology infrastructure into sync with learning ecosystems. The learning industry has had some transformation lately with the xAPI, cmi5 and a variety of cloud LMS vendors coming online. Neither of these technology realms currently talk to each other in most organizations. You’ll explore why this is, what problems it causes, and what advances in business could be gained if this issue was solved.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About the challenges of data interoperability
  • How to handle the coming data avalanche and its implications for your organization
  • Where learning and enterprise technology often gap or disconnect
  • What the next steps in bringing enterprise technology and learning technology integration are

Managers, directors, and senior leaders (VPs, CLOs, executives, etc.).

Technology discussed in this session:
Enterprise SaaS platforms, enterprise learning systems, data schema and specifications, and various relevant application programming interfaces (APIs).
