This week the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC) voted to start up aTechnical Advisory Group (TAG) for the Experience API (xAPI).
Our initial purpose is to create an IEEE technical report as a reference and implementation guide for xAPI 1.0.3. More broadly, we’ll be providing an open place for discussion among xAPI stakeholders and we’ll potentially be making recommendations about needs to support widespread use of the specification based on our activity in writing the report.
Our start point is thexAPI 1.0.3 specification. We’ll discuss all aspects of xAPI such as xAPI Profiles and the relation of xAPI to SCORM and cmi5. The end point is open-ended and in our discussion we will work to define the scope of the TAG.
