Adoption of xAPI allows for more robust and interesting tracking of the learning process. Actual data for performance and results, integrating with learning metrics provides the data to tailor your learning processes to individual needs. Also we can draw more useful conclusions about the learning across a wider population. This leaves instructional designers with a set of critical questions:

  • How does this impact my work?
  • What tools do I need?
  • What data should I track?
  • What infrastructure does my organization need to take advantage of this?
  • And … the million dollar question … How do I get started?

After an introduction to xAPI and how it's different from the SCORM-based LMS environment we're familiar with, we'll discuss three key areas that impact instructional designers and their teams:

  • Determining what data to send, where it exists, and how to organize it
  • Making choices about infrastructure: how and when to work with your LMS, your LRS or both
  • Getting started with the xAPI Learning Cohort, a 12-week learning by doing virtual experience
