SMM202 Demystifying xAPI with Immediate Strategies for Learning Analytics
11:00 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, March 27
Expo Hall: Management & Measurement Stage
You continue to hear about xAPI and how learning analytics can bring new insights about your training, but you aren’t quite sure how to get started. You may also feel like xAPI is only for developers and requires a lot of technical knowledge and coding skills. Because of these misconceptions, you are missing out on valuable learning data that you could be using to improve your training.
In this session, you will explore practical ways to get started with learning analytics. You’ll find out which basic tools you need to start collecting learning data and gain insights on how your learners are interacting with your training. You will also take a look at different learning record providers (LRPs) that send xAPI statements out of the box, and learning record stores (LRSs) that can provide deeper insight into those statements.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to plan for learning data in the design phase
- About free and low-cost solutions to start collecting learning data
- What to do with the learning data you’ve collected
- Immediate ways to gather learning data in your next project
