MX103 Using Mobile and the xAPI to Make On-the-job Learning Practical
12:00 PM - 12:45 PM Wednesday, March 16
Management Xchange Stage
The development of workplace skills happens primarily beyond the traditional eLearning course, through on-the-job experience and coaching by managers. Mobile technologies, the Experience API (xAPI, Tin Can), and badges have made it practical to implement on-the-job learning. You’ll see how an on-the-job learning path was deployed on employees’ smartphones to increase speed to proficiency, which included accessing video modeling and performance support at the moment of need; using their phones’ sensors (camera, audio, video, and GPS) to capture evidence of work and submit it to coaches for feedback and guidance; and xAPI-enabled tracking, learning analytics, and awarding of badges.
