414 xAPI Hyperdrive Showcase
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM Thursday, October 30
Interest in the Experience API has grown steadily in the last few years, but most of the conversations exploring the topic were either conceptual or technical in nature. There have few case studies showing the xAPI in practice, and those that did exist focused more on the technical application of the specification rather than on business value.
Adoption of the Experience API (xAPI) continues to grow, and we are now seeing examples of xAPI case studies that focus on the business value that is being provided by the use of the specification. In this session, you will learn from the three winning entries from xAPI Hyperdrive, the competition that took place before DevLearn began. You will leave this session better understanding the business value that innovative use of the xAPI can provide to organizations.
In this session, you will learn:
- From examples of the xAPI being used to innovate learning
- How the xAPI can provide business value
- What the business case is for xAPI use
- The future potential of the xAPI
Intermediate and advanced designers, developers, project managers, and managers.
