Peace, Love & Data Interoperability: Using xAPI to Drive Analytics with Megan Torrance | October 16, 2019

October 10, 2019

As adoption of xAPI takes hold, it allows for more robust and interesting tracking of the learning process. As actual performance and results data are integrated with learning metrics, we will have the data we need to tailor the learning process to individual needs at the same time that we can draw more useful conclusions about the learning as a whole across a wider population.

This leaves instructional designers with a set of critical questions: How does this impact my work? What tools do I need? What data should I track? What infrastructure does my organization need to be able to take advantage of this?

How does this session address the problem?

After an introduction to xAPI and how it’s different from the SCORM-based LMS environment we’re familiar with, we’ll discuss three key areas that impact instructional designers and their teams:

  • Identifying learning data needs, data sources and meaningful visualizations that answer organizational and L&D questions
  • Determining what data to send, where it exists, and how to organize it
  • Making choices about infrastructure: how and when to work with your LMS, your LRS or both
