Session Description:
The Experience API (xAPI) and the learning record store are powerful tools for any learning organization, providing improved visibility into learning data. This session focuses on practical business outcomes, using high-level case studies to demonstrate short- and long-term benefits of xAPI. In this session, we will address how xAPI can fit into your learning ecosystem, and how it compares with other learning standards. We'll also discuss the first steps to testing and validating the value of xAPI for your organization.

Application on the Job:
Explore different learning data standards and learn about different learning ecosystem configurations and how those structures facilitate or inhibit data collection and use.
Design a proof of concept application of xAPI in your organization, complete with data sources needed and success criteria.
Use applied business outcomes shared in the session to determine what value your organization might focus on in testing an xAPI implementation.
