Next week, Dr. Jon Aleckson of Web Courseworks will be speaking at the Learning Solutions 2017 conference in Orlando, FL. He will be joined by Dr. Chad Jackson of CHEST (American College of Chest Physicians) as they speak on an xAPI project that Web Courseworks and CHEST created using data collection from medical simulators. CHEST is the first medical association with a clinical simulation program accredited by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare.

The presentation, “Using xAPI to Collect Learning Data from Simulations ,” will discuss how CHEST uses xAPI for their live, Difficult Airway Management course. During the course, physicians practice intubation techniques on high-fidelity medical simulators as instructors observe how they perform the procedure via a checklist on an iPad. Previously, only the data from the iPad was transferred to the physician’s transcript in the LMS, and the data stored in the mannequin was unusable. Using xAPI, the simulator’s data was able to be transferred to the LMS using Watershed’s learning record store (LRS). During the session, Chad Jackson will share the technical details, best practices, and lessons learned from CHEST’s experience with xAPI. Learn more at their session to help create your own roadmap to adopt xAPI into your organization. Unlock xAPI’s potential and deliver more innovative learning experiences to your members!
