xAPI Workshop

xAPI Workshop

As 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.


Please note that this workshop requires a minimum of 5 people to sign up, otherwise it will not be held. 


Please note there's a registration fee of $595 for the ComplianceWire Pro Training Event.
