On Wednesday, September 24, 2014, we hosted a webinar called “Learn how the National Health Service UK is using the Experience API”. As usual, the attendees had more questions that we could answer during the live webinar, so we’ve posted the questions and the answers here.


 

Q: You know what would be helpful is a matrix of different content types and the methodology used to equip them for Experience API.

A: I agree. We are hoping to increase the robustness of our xAPI Adopters page in the future to more fully describe the xAPI enabled tools on the market. From a technical perspective, we hope that xAPI recipies will help inform how to best outfit different content types.

ATD xAPI Basics Webinar Q&A

On 9/11/14,  we hosted a webinar for the Columbus chapter of ATD, and as usual,  the attendees had more questions that we could answer during the live webinar, so we’ve posted the questions and the answers here.


 

Q: With which SCORM versions is Experience API compliant?

A: None of them. xAPI is a completely new standard. You can use xAPI to do many of the same things you could do with SCORM, but the technical implementation behind the scenes is very different. The question is akin to asking “is streaming video compatible with VHS or Betamax?”. They are very different technologies, but any movie you watched on video tape can also be watched on streaming video and streaming video allows you to do much, much more.

On 8/27/14,  I hosted a webinar alongside Larla Bogle and James Merrill from AT&T entitled “How AT&T is Using xAPI to Enhance Compliance Training”. The attendees had more questions that we could answer during the live webinar, so we’ve posted the questions and the answers here.

Q: Why did you need xAPI instead of SCORM 1.2 or SCORM 2004?
Q: What did xAPI allow you to do that SCORM 1.2 or 2004 couldn’t?

xAPI enables us to collect data from many different systems (not just traditional e-learning experiences in an LMS). In addition to the Nexlearn simulation, this project also tracked data from a video platform, an intranet site, surveys and assessment tools.

Yesterday, I hosted a webinar entitled “Rethinking Learning Systems with the Experience API”. The attendees had more questions that we could answer during the live webinar, so I’ve posted your questions and my answers here.

Q:   What is TDS?

A: TDS = Training Delivery System.  A new product category with the responsibility to deliver and track learning and training content. Tracking is handled by the Experience API. Think of is as an independent SCORM player that can handle pushing out formal structured training that can be launched from anywhere.
