The xAPI Designer’s Track for Learning Solutions 2018

If you’re headed to Learning Solutions next week, there are a lot of sessions to go through — 165 to be exact. While the eLearning Guild has set out a few great curated tracks for you to explore including Learning & Performance Ecosystems, International Perspectives, Industry Insights, Intro to Instructional Design, and BYOD, there isn’t an official track for xAPI. If you’re like many of the organizations we work with, one of your big goals for the conference is to learn the right way to design your xAPI-powered learning and performance ecosystem and see real-world case studies.

The following sessions make up the officially unofficial Learning Solutions xAPI Designer’s Track. These sessions explore xAPI from organization-wide approaches and outcomes all the way down to providing a technical understanding of how xAPI statements are created. By focusing on design for engaging learning experiences connected by xAPI-powered analytics, this track will give you a 360-degree view into what xAPI is, how it is impacting the eLearning industry, and why it matters for your learners and your business.
