Why Profiles are Important to xAPI Right Now

by: Megan Bowe

The above video was made by our colleagues in Australia, Kirsty Kitto and Aneesha Bahkaria. They have been working on the Connected Learning Analytics Toolkit and have experienced challenges with xAPI’s data portability. This video describes why we need to make more profiles (aka recipes) and make the existing profiles better. I’m not going to say the universe is at stake, but it’s going to be an amazingly complicated if we don’t get better at this.

This is one driver behind the xAPI Quarterly’s index along with update threads on profiles and vocabulary. With out a formal body managing vocabulary and profiles, we’re bridging the gap in an attempt to expose the overlaps and holes.

Check out the video below and read Kirsty’s post about this topic here.
