eLearning Thought Leaders Series:

In the 10th installment of the Managing eLearning: Thought Leaders Series, Megan Torrance presents on the xAPI: What Does an Instructional Designer Need to Know?

As adoption of xAPI takes hold, the convergence of working and learning offers instructional designers the opportunity to do more than ever before. xAPI allows for more robust tracking of the learning process, including learning that happens outside the LMS and on the job. As actual data is integrated with learning metrics, we can tailor the process to individual needs and draw useful conclusions about the learning as a whole.

In this session, you learn:
– Identify new challenges in their work as an instructional designer
– Describe the impact that xAPI can have on their organization’s learning and performance strategies
– Identify data needs and likely sources within the organization to meet them
– Choose one or more first projects that leverage xAPI’s capabilities beyond what’s available in SCORM today
