  • “We need to create Personal Learning Record Stores that an individual can access for life. These need to be able to accept data from a wide variety of data sources… and they will need to be able to send data to even more. We need to make it easy for people to curate their learning data, and to create ePortfolios of their work that link to the underlying evidence stored in the PLRS.” Read more about – Why do we need interoperability anyway?
  • “People should be at the center of the system designs rather than endpoints. Their activities inform the technology of what they do or do not know. The recommendations they receive are based on both what they know and what they want to know. If they are only receiving outputs from whatever technology, nothing is being personalized and the technology is not adapting.” Read more about a New Series: AI in Learning and Development
  • “From work in competitive intelligence, huge information disconnects exist within businesses, and both individuals and entire organizations are hurt by the lack of easily accessed and analyzed information. Interviewing people across five roles in a company can end up feeling like one is speaking to five different businesses, not one. This has tremendous costs in terms of employee growth and satisfaction as well as organizational success. I saw xAPI as a way for organizations to gain deeper internal understanding – by seeing what learning actually impacts performance, there is the potential to understand what the real learning needs are to support success for employee and employer alike.” Read more about the new book – Investigating Performance: Design and Outcomes with xAPI
  • “xAPI as a technology is finding a lot of adoption, even despite support structures that will unleash its value to individuals and organizations. In the last nine months, we’ve seen conformance requirements and conformance tests developed, and the advent of a formal specification for xAPI Profiles will deliver a much-needed support for semantic interoperability of its data, just as technical interoperability is needed for all the components of enterprise architecture to function correctly.” Read more about – Continuous Improvement at Industry-Scale
  • “The Museum has access to data about the length of time spent at each exhibit, the challenges completed, the data entered by students and the curriculum standards being exposed. Reports can display all data over all time, or hone in to specific school or classroom level reports.” Read more about – Flipping the Model: Using data to quantify the informal learning experience
