A4. The ABCs of xAPI
As if the learning and development world didn’t already have enough acronyms, in 2013 along came the xAPI standard.
Sometimes described as the successor to (acronym alert!) SCORM and sometimes known as Tin Can API, xAPI opens up a huge range of possibilities for tracking and reporting on learning activities in the real world in which they occur, with or without an LMS (yeesh, another acronym!).
But four years after its introduction it remains a mystery for many organizations – and that’s not a good thing.
In this session Chris will walk through the basics of xAPI, giving you an understanding of what it is and how it works. More importantly, he’ll share examples of how organizations are using it to solve real problems.
Come for the acronyms, stay for the inspiration (and bad puns)!
