SXAPI106 Closing the Loop: When Learning Experience Meets Work Experience
3:15 PM - 4:00 PM Wednesday, October 24
Expo Hall: xAPI Central Showcase Stage
Halliburton is one of the leading global oil and gas services companies. It has more than 50,000 employees and 14 product service lines, which means any improvement in efficiency is a major win. Its oil and gas exploration clients and internal Halliburton employees use Landmark software to identify drilling locations and make technical decisions on how to drill, an activity that can take up to 40 percent of their work time. That’s why it’s so important to help these users learn how to best use this software: so they can not only find the best locations for drilling and make the best technical decisions, but also identify them more quickly by leveraging everything the software has to offer. In order to develop resources to help these users, it’s important to be connected to the field and to understand how people are working and learning. The better you understand the process as applied in reality, the better you can evaluate the data and see if you are missing anything.
In this session, you will learn how a Halliburton team approached the exploration of new, innovative learning strategies by first using an online survey tool with embedded video content from their Kaltura video platform and added questions to assess learning. You’ll then see how they combined the experiences from their Halliburton software, Kaltura video platform, and online learning activities into one dashboard using xAPI and the Watershed learning analytics platform. In addition to understanding how people are using the software, they can identify who isn’t and why. Through Kaltura and Watershed, they have a 360-degree view of what’s going on and how training has a real-world impact on users’ behavior.
In this session, you will learn:
- About Halliburton’s dashboard using xAPI and the Watershed learning analytics platform
- How Kaltura and Watershed provided a 360-degree view of how training has a real-world impact on users
- How they improved the way users interact with the software through training, as well as measured the training’s effectiveness
