We want to improve our audience’s engagement and experience in the eLearning environment. They’ve expressed that they want eLearning experiences are personalized and dynamic, with content that adapts to their performance and choices. In addition to this added complexity, it’s also important that we have the ability to track and measure their completion, as well as the activity and pathways they took to get there. The solution? Leverage the benefits of traditional LMS/SCORM with the benefits of the evolving LRS/xAPI.

In this session, you’ll learn how to increase learning personalization by adding xAPI statements to the SCORM-compliant eLearning your team is already building. Doing this allows you to create content that adapts to user inputs related to their job role, their geographic location, and/or their level of knowledge. You’ll explore a case study on how results from an annual compliance training eLearning module were able to utilize both SCORM and xAPI concurrently, and why this was the right solution. You’ll then find out how a traditional eLearning module published in SCORM and hosted on an LMS can leverage the power of xAPI by sending xAPI statements to an LRS. You’ll leave this session with a practical approach that can be translated across various industries and/or applications.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How xAPI can be used in Storyline
  • How modules published in SCORM to an LMS can send xAPI statements to an LRS and why this is important
  • How eLearning can be more adaptive to people’s input
  • How mobile technology can be used to deliver and/or assess training
