Welcome to our second journal. We’re waiting for winter in the North Eastern US, so here’s some snow to look forward to. This journal features many of the presenters from xAPI Camp Toronto. We also have a couple of exciting pieces of news – cohorts, hackathons, and videos! [Read more…]
In terms of xAPI support Claro offers a lot right out of the box. Claro has the ability to assign statement generation to any object within a page using an Action. Each page also generates its own statement without having to do anything other than set the output type for publishing. [Read more…]

It’s no surprise that the first product adopters to implement Experience API were eLearning authoring tools, with a quick follow of mobile learning apps. It’s not surprising because the one factor that drives most everything in the learning space has less to do with learners than authors: expediency. We are designing under deadline and budget constraints and as learning specialists—we are where the buck really stops.
This hackathon is happening as a preconference activity to the SOLAR’s Learning Analytics and Knowledge Conference (LAK16) in Edinburgh. The hackathon will be two days, April 25th and 26th. We’re psyched because this hackathon will focus on interoperability, particularly in xAPI vocabulary. [Read more…]
Over the last 3 years, ADL has run xAPI design cohorts. These cohorts gave people a team to collaborate with, supporting active learning about xAPI while designing forward-thinking prototypes and learning experiences. The growth in xAPI adoption and the increasing demand for the program became more than ADL’s dedicated xAPI team could sustain. With so many competing priorities, they no longer have the capacity to run these community cohorts.
We don’t want you all to get too excited, but the JISC/Apereo Learning Analytics Hackathon is going to focus on xAPI! This hackathon takes place before LAK 16 (Learning Analytics and Knowledge Conference). Profiles and vocabulary interoperability will be the main topics. This is a perfect group of people to tackle this and a great environment to work in. Please join us if you have the vocab itch.
