Built for data interoperability and technological extensibility, xAPI began its life as a learning data specification and has grown into a human performance standard.
"Yet Analytics and the Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative (ADL) of the U.S. DoD... presented an update on the Experience API. The platform supports a pretty robust set of developer resources and is expected to increase the ability to track training and performance analytics, combining data from web and mobile services, virtual reality, video games and simulations, wearables, and the Internet of Things." — Pivotal Blog on events at SXSW Interactive 2016
“One of the more interesting developments,” said Yet Analytics CEO Shelly Blake-Plock, “is how the whole idea of performance data is being reevaluated. We are seeing clients now who are viewing even things like customer feedback and audience attention spans as aspects of the broader spectrum of human performance across connected and immersive environments.” — quoted in DZone
