SELR204 Getting Started with xAPI in Rapid Authoring Tools
1:15 PM - 2:00 PM Thursday, October 25
Expo Hall: eLearning Rockstars Stage
The whole industry seems excited about xAPI. It’s a spectacular option for gaining deep insights into learner actions—or opening up the learning environment entirely. Exciting stuff indeed. Getting excited is easy; getting started is another story. How do you get started with xAPI? How can you use the rapid authoring tools you’re already familiar with to tap into the reporting potential of xAPI?
This session will look at how the big three rapid authoring tools handle xAPI. It will start with a very brief xAPI introduction. Then, you’ll take a deep dive into each tool: how Storyline, Captivate, and Lectora work with out-of-the-box statements; how to send custom statements with each tool; and constructing a launch path and testing xAPI statements.
In this session, you will learn:
- How Storyline, Captivate, and Lectora handle out-of-the-box xAPI statements
- How Storyline, Captivate, and Lectora handle custom xAPI statements
- How to construct an xAPI launch path
- How to get and use a better-than-free LRS for xAPI testing
Novice to intermediate designers and developers.
Technology discussed in this session:
xAPI, Articulate Storyline 3 and 360, Adobe Captivate 2017, Lectora Inspire 17, and LRS/ScormCloud.
