All Sessions Where Title or Description Contains "xapi"
Your access to learning-related data has grown dramatically over recent years. But just because you have a large volume of data doesn’t mean it necessarily provides value. While tools like the xAPI make it increasingly easy to acquire data about learners’ activities, this information provides little benefit if you don’t know how to design to acquire meaningful data, interpret that data, or improve your learning design based on what you’ve discovered.Read More
Massive open online courses (MOOCs) continue to be both big news and big business, but one aspect that is less often discussed is the behind-the-scenes perspective. Building a greater understanding of the design considerations, facilitation techniques, and data interpretation from MOOCs can give you valuable inspiration for designing and facilitating any people development activities—regardless of whether or not you’re building MOOCs.Read More
Stage Program B
To deliver personalized learning experiences for employees, Visa needed to better understand what its employees were interested in learning. However, because Visa uses various content types and providers, tracking and analyzing learner behavior was difficult. As a result, creating and delivering tailored learning approaches was also challenging.Read More
Every revolution requires both dreamers and pragmatists. The xAPI dreamers have been painting a beautiful picture of what is becoming possible. To realize its full potential, the pragmatists need to catch up. The xAPI needs a very specific set of work completed to be successful, and it needs organizations to participate in making the next generation of learning systems and impacts possible.Read More
Good courseware will use multiple elements such as video, audio, interaction, and good old-fashioned reading. You struggle to balance all of it until it’s a finely harmonized symphony of information, waiting for a student to take it all in. But are any of those activities or videos you’ve worked on actually helping anyone learn? How can you show the relationship between the activities and performance?Read More
Instructional designers tend to define what is possible by the limitations of their chosen authoring tools, and common modern web practices don’t always transfer over to those tools until it is too late. Because of this, IDs sometimes remove ideas like responsive courses from consideration because their authoring tools don’t automatically support the capability. But why not take control over what you can do in your eLearning authoring by building it yourself?Read More
Years of momentum have resulted in a collection of use cases for teams seeking to leverage the xAPI to better track, measure, and manage their learning efforts. The time is now; the xAPI can improve the ways you create and deliver content and classes, track interactions, communicate, and measure performance. Armed with knowledge and the proverbial Swiss Army Knife of xAPI functions, begin to “slice, saw, tweeze and pick” your way through training obstacles.Read More
When a new specification such as the xAPI comes out, it is important to understand the basics. And one of the most critical basics of the xAPI is the concept of statements: the way most xAPI data is communicated. Before getting started with an xAPI implementation, you’ll want to have a strong understanding of what statements are and how you can form them yourself.Read More
You know that taking online courses isn’t the only way to learn. You want to invent new learning formats and experiences that better meet your audience’s needs. However, in many cases you need to include tracking, and the types of learning trackable by traditional learning management systems are limited. The Experience API (xAPI) specification is flexible enough to track a wide range of learning experiences, but it’s a new technology, and barriers to adoption still exist. How do you bridge this gap?Read More
You’re excited about the promise of an xAPI-enabled world, but you currently have a learning management system and a host of SCORM-based courses that you can’t just get rid of. Early on, it can be difficult to see how you can stay flexible and manage this transition over time. But what if you could get the most out of both an LMS and an LRS (learning record store) at the same time that you move to your next-generation learning and performance infrastructure?Read More
Technology like xAPI has provided the learning industry with the opportunity to track anything, anywhere, and L&D and HR leaders are hailing the arrival of people analytics. These advances provide substantially more data about the people in an organization, but what do you do with the data? Are you gathering the right information? Where do you even start?Read More
