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.
There is big news coming to the world of vocab and xAPI, but it’s not ready to publish quite yet. The ADL Working Group has been working on a specification for xAPI vocab which will help all of us work with vocab. We will post details as we can. [Read more…]
