You’ve heard about xAPI for years, and your organization is calling for a data-driven strategy across every function and department. Every step on your xAPI journey is a source of learning at the same time that it builds the buy-in and credibility to take on the next step—so you want to get it right! As you lead your organization into an xAPI implementation, let’s explore the strategies, relationships, tools, and skills you’ll need to take this on.
Implementing xAPI requires a strategic mindset, a willingness to learn and adapt, and a deep understanding of your organization’s learning ecosystem along with the technical know-how. Our session begins by navigating the implementation roadmap, providing a detailed exploration across five stages of maturity. This roadmap is not just a theoretical framework; it’s a proven path walked by organizations that have successfully built an xAPI foundation for their L&D strategies. By learning from these real-world examples, participants will gain valuable insights into the challenges and triumphs of implementing xAPI.
We’ll start with a look at the key pieces of technical infrastructure needed in your learning ecosystem, from authoring tools and data sources, to the learning record store, your LMS, and your analytics platform. As solution providers build out their offerings to meet your needs, what can you expect out of the box, and what will you need to customize?
A crucial aspect of xAPI implementation is the development of the L&D team. We’ll discuss the types of skills needed on the team and where to get them, including free and low-cost learning opportunities, online communities, and what you can expect from your vendor partners.
Finally, we’ll provide access to a number of free tools for learning designers & developers for data profile management and testing your LMS’s true xAPI capabilities.
xAPI Hands-On Learning & Application – HOLA! Workshop
The Hands-On Learning & Application (HOLA!) Workshop covers everything from the basics of What is xAPI? to Building an xAPI Roadmap for your organization. Along the way, learners will brainstorm business questions that can be answered with learning data, create an xAPI-enabled prototype, and explore data within a Learning Record Store (LRS). Lessons include both passive (e.g., video, written content) and active (e.g., chat/reflection questions, interactive Storyline) learning activities in an easy-to-use learning platform.
This experience is facilitator-guided, but it also includes a cohort-like, “we’re in this together,” interactive learning experience. If you are newer to xAPI, get ready to get your feet wet and get hands-on with exercises, templates, and activities that will have you building your first xAPI-enabled prototype in a few weeks. Experts from TorranceLearning will be actively monitoring the experience and contributing insights as you progress—providing guidance to answer questions and prompting deeper engagement with the content and concepts.
