ECO913 Choosing a Learning Record Store
8:30 AM - 9:30 AM Friday, March 18
Ecosystem - Technology
With the advent of the xAPI, a new learning technology product has come into being: the learning record store (LRS). It is a requirement for using the xAPI to track learner behavior, serving as a repository for data generated by the xAPI statements. Stakeholders need to know the basics of how LRSs work and the range of features available in them in order to make intelligent acquisition, ecosystem design, and implementation decisions. In order to use the xAPI, you must have an LRS.
In this session, you will learn the process of choosing an LRS and making an informed decision. You will learn the basics of LRSs and the range of considerations for choosing a system. You will see how the xAPI is becoming an important addition to the learning technology landscape, allowing the tracking of virtually any learner behavior and enabling data analytics. You will also learn why it is quickly gaining traction among learning organizations.
In this session, you will learn:
- How an LRS works
- Why an LRS is necessary for the xAPI
- The range of features possible in products
- A rational process for choosing
Intermediate and advanced developers, project managers, managers, and directors.
