Instructional Design and xAPI Workshop

Instructional and xAPI Workshop

The Instructional Design Workshop focuses on the design and development of eLearning courses. A traditional view of instructional design is presented via the ADDIE model as well as trends in eLearning. These are discussed in an interactive format with exercises.

The workshop concludes with a discussion around the delivery and management of your eLearning courses.  

The xAPI Workshop will focus on the  adoption of xAPI (the Experience API, formerly known as the Tin Can API) begins to spread, the convergence of working and learning offers instructional designers the opportunity to do more than ever before.
xAPI allows for more robust and interesting tracking of the learning process, including learning that happens outside the LMS and on the job. As actual performance and results data are combined with learning metrics, we will have the data we need to tailor the learning process to individual needs, and draw more useful conclusions about the learning as a whole across a wider audience.
