Tracking Wisely: What Can xAPI Do For You?

4 ways your authoring tool can use xAPI to drive learning value

Since its first release in April 2013, experience API (or xAPI) has proved something of a revolution in tracking learning. It’s an invaluable way of recording data and, crucially, measuring the business impact of Learning & Development (L&D). But what is xAPI and how can you maximise its benefits for offline learning?

xAPI is an elearning software specification which enables learning systems (like an LMS) and learning content (for example, content created with an authoring tool and distributed via a native app) to ‘talk’ to each other. This two-way communication then records and tracks all types of learning experiences and keeps them in a Learning Record Store (LRS).

While its predecessor, SCORM (the Sharable Content Object Reference Model), has provided an important tracking tool since its arrival in 2000, xAPI allows you to track a variety of systems and methods of learning – and it’s particularly effective at keeping track of mobile learning and offline learning, which were on the rise before its introduction and have grown in prevalence since.

As a way of collecting, storing and analysing data, xAPI has the power to help you create a new learning technology architecture without encountering lots of coding and integration demands. Here are some more xAPI benefits you can take advantage of today:
