Emerging Learning Technologies: An Overview of Experience API (Tin Can API)

NOTE: Register by July 15 to reserve a lunch. 

Credit card users MUST pay in advance. If you are paying at the event, we can only take cash or check.  

Program Description:

Here's a common issue faced by most organizations: learning happens beyond the LMS and formal environments often available. Additionally, new demands and opportunities for mobile learning are often met with uncertainties for integration to a broader strategy. 

But the Experience API (xAPI), or Tin Can API, is an emerging standard that promises to evolve the learning technology marketplace. In short, this is the next generation of SCORM and it's poised to change the paradigm of enterprise learning.

Attend this session and learn:

  • What is Experience API?
  • Why do we need something new to replace SCORM?
  • What does xAPI mean for learning products and technologies?
  • What business problems can xAPI solve?
  • How do I keep up with current information on this critical new technology?

Workshop to follow: "Planning & Designing for Experience API (Tin Can API) and its Affordances"

This luncheon will be followed by a 3-hour interactive workshop that will give you a deeper dive into this topic.

Registration for the luncheon and the workshop are separate. Click HERE to learn more about the workshop.

About the Speakers:

Neil LasherNeil Lasher is a leading light both in the eLearning and mLearning industries. As a pioneer of both delivery methods, Neil has pushed the envelope at every opportunity and always challenges the existing rules of learning to forge new methods so that the end user takes away the very best content and has the most engaging experience. 

A lively speaker, Neil has been sought by many conferences around the world to present in his trademark entertaining manner. Neil has also published many new papers on instructional design and mobile learning techniques, and he creates high-voltage learning events. In the summer of 2012, Neil worked for the London 2012 Olympics, helping to roll out 1 million hours of learning to 200,000 people...learning events don't get more high profile or mission critical than that!

Neil sits on the advisory board of the UK's Learning and Performance Institute (LPI). He is also a past president of ASTD (UK Network) and past vice chair of eLearning Network. And he hosts a mobile "technical stage" each year for the eLearning Guid's mLearnCon (the world's premier mobile conference). 

Neil lives in the United Kingdom. 

Mike HruskaMichael Hruska is a technologist and entrepreneur with diverse experiences spanning across standards, emerging technologies, learning, and science. He is a former researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, MD. Currently he is the President and CEO of Problem Solutions, which provides learning technology solutions to government, commercial, and nonprofit organizations.

Michael and his team have been leading efforts for four years at the DoD on the future of a Training and Learning Architecture (TLA) which evolves from SCORM. They have created and stewarded projects to enable the Experience API (Tin Can API). He is a member of ASTD, the eLearning Guild, the Society for Applied Learning Technologies (SALT), and the National defense and Industrial Association (NDIA).

Michael lives in Pennsylvania.
