201 An Instructional Designer's Guide to Implementing xAPI

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Wednesday, August 22

With xAPI gaining in adoption, the front-end tools that allow for mass adoption are ready. The LMS/LRS products that serve as data engines are maturing. As L&D teams move from a SCORM-based world to an xAPI environment, we have the opportunity to create coherent, topical-based learning environments instead of a collection media or product-based silos.

In this session, you'll learn how to implement your first xAPI project. You'll discover why instructional designers need to take care in designing learning environments and activity statements that capture the data they'll need: identifying users, choosing verbs, aligning multiple products and tools, and capturing the right contextual information. You'll explore the data storage infrastructure: How does your LMS work with xAPI? Lastly, you'll examine how to pick the right project for your first xAPI implementation.
