304 Is It Working? Correlating Usage with the xAPI

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Wednesday, November 16

Data and Measurement


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?

This session will show how you can use the xAPI to capture data from different activities into a single uniform format in the learning record store (LRS). Then, by looking at a real-world example page with video and test questions, you can start analyzing results to see which activities contribute most to learner success and which test questions need work. And by knowing how to leverage your data, you can begin to see how to design your content to make sure that data is where you need it, when you need it!

In this session, you will learn:

  • How the xAPI can help you collect user data
  • How activity data can be combined to see if your test questions are good
  • How activity data can be combined to make sure your activities are accomplishing their goals
  • How to use the xAPI to compare consumption to performance
  • How to make sure your content does what you need it to

Intermediate designers, developers, managers, and directors.

Technology discussed in this session:
HTML5, JavaScript, the xAPI, and LRSs.
