xAPI Implementation

How do you know that your eLearning is effective if you don’t have the data to back it up? If you host your eLearning on an LMS, then you’re likely able to see quiz scores and the names of the learners that accessed your courses. This is made possible by SCORM, a specification developed in 1999.

Well, the tech landscape has changed a lot in 20 years, and the Experience API (xAPI) is the souped-up successor to SCORM. The xAPI specification lets you collect data down to the very last detail about how learners are interacting with your eLearning experiences. You can see which resources they’re viewing, how long they’re spending on a given slide, what they’re typing into an open-response question, and so much more.

You can use xAPI to monitor performance data, too. By comparing the in-depth learning data to the real-time performance data, you can draw powerful conclusions about an eLearning course’s effectiveness. A modern data collection and analysis strategy justifies eLearning ROI like nothing else, and it’s an industry consensus that xAPI is the way of the future.

If you’d like us to map out a data collection strategy and then put it into place, we are more than happy to do so. Or, if you’d like us to develop an eLearning course for you, we can implement xAPI from the ground up.

Once we’ve implemented xAPI tracking in your eLearning courses, we can:

  1. Send you detailed data visualizations that demonstrate how learners are engaging with your course.
  2. Provide actionable feedback about how to improve your eLearning program based on the data.
  3. Make any necessary changes to improve your eLearning courses based on the data at hand.

If you’re looking for something a little more advanced, then you’re in the right place; we are able to push xAPI to its limits.

This means that we can put together organizational learning leaderboards that show the top performers in your eLearning program, personalize the learning content that someone sees based on their performance in other courses, and even make eLearning suggestions based on a user’s performance.
