P12 BYOD: xAPI Implementation for Beginners

8:30 AM - 4:30 PM PT
Tuesday, October 19

Tracks: Data & Measurement

Series: BYOD

You have been hearing about xAPI for years, you probably already see how it can benefit your company, but how do you get started? How do you develop a strategy for your company, and better yet, implement that strategy using tools you already have? You may be ready to just move past the basic understanding of xAPI and actually start implementing and using it within your company.

In this workshop we go past just understanding what xAPI is and its benefits and talk about how to implement it within your organization. We will cover how to create an xAPI strategy document that defines what learning verbs you will be using within your organization. We will then cover how to format your xAPI statements correctly and how to trigger those statements at the right moment, no matter the authoring tool you use. Next, we’ll dive deep into working with that data inside your LRS to make it more consumable for all stakeholders, and how you can create relationships between different data points to see how learners are working with your learning content. Finally, we will cover how to use historical learning data to personalize future learning for each learner. This full day workshop goes well beyond just understanding xAPI and gives you more than five working examples to take back to your company and implement right away.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to create an xAPI strategy document
  • How to correctly format your xAPI statements
