We live in a bring-your-own-device world today, with learners accessing content on the go in a variety of ways. Most learning departments are able only to track and report on content locked in a learning management system (LMS). However, new additions to the enterprise learning ecosystem, such as Experience API (xAPI), are allowing these departments to track and report on multiple forms of educational experience. The formative and summative evaluation data on training effectiveness that are so hard to get from LMSs can now be gathered from multiple sources and reported to the LMS and other systems. xAPI provides finite interaction data. By leveraging xAPI and a learning record store (LRS), organizations are proving you can provide information to multiple systems and can even synchronize data among HR systems, talent management, job performance systems, and more.

In this webcast you will learn:

  • how xAPI and LRSs can improve tracking and reporting of key metrics
  • real client cases of organizations maximizing their ecosystems and utilizing xAPI/LRSs
  • how to get started with implementing new training tech initiatives.
