809 xAPI Basics for Mobile Learning
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Friday, October 27
Data and Measurement
Mobile learning projects can be tremendously difficult to measure and track using SCORM. As a matter of fact, there is some data that cannot be captured at all. For organizations moving into multi-screen learning platforms, capturing important information about how the audience interacts with content is a critical missing piece.
In this session, we will review examples of how xAPI can be used to report data on interactions with mobile learning content. We will discuss how you can apply and customize this approach to your mobile content, gaining valuable insight from the rich data you can collect. Specifically, we will review two examples: an interactive eBook and a mobile learning solution and assessment tool built into Adobe Captivate. You will leave with sample files that you can apply to your own projects.
In this session, you will learn:
- How xAPI and cmi5 function
- How xAPI and cmi5 were applied to projects to collect specific interaction data
- How xAPI can be programmed into mobile learning solutions, what happens to the data, and how it can be used
