An Introduction to xAPI and Learning Analytics

The state of learning data architecture has shifted dramatically during the past three years. Learning happens everywhere, and collecting more experiences that matter to your learners vastly expands the ability to validate learning and training efforts. The introduction of technologies such as xAPI and Learning Record Stores (LRSs) has revolutionized what’s possible in delivering, tracking and evaluating learning and performance. Now, organizations can have a holistic view of learning that allows them to identify their most active learners, pinpoint the most engaging content, evaluate skills and competencies, and determine how learning impacts organizational KPIs.

Join Tim Dickinson, a leading xAPI and learning analytics expert, as he discusses what xAPI is, simple ways to start using it, and how organizations such as Visa, Behr and Applied are levering it to build modern learning ecosystems.

In this session, you will:

  • Develop a clear understanding of what xAPI is and how it’s different from other learning standards.
  • Explore new ways to track and evaluate the impact of learning on the business by harnessing the power of xAPI and LRS.
  • Examine design patterns and best practices from real-world examples of xAPI implementations.
