The Actor element in a xAPI statement defines the person who is taking the action described by that statement. These actors can be defined by email address, open ID, or by using the login username and URL of an SSL service or the service providing access to the courses or other training products. This video explores the Actor element and demonstrates how it is constructed and used in a xAPI statement.
- [Instructor] The actor element in a statement…defines the person taking the action…described by that xAPI statement.…The actor must be defined by a unique identifier…that could only describe that agent or that person.…So this will normally be something like an email address,…an open ID, or the username at a given website.…For example, you could use the login ID…for your learning management system…or whatever system you're using to host the xAPI content.…But one important note here,…you can only use one of these at a time.…
For example, if you're going to use the email address,…you can't also list the open ID.…You can list the first name, last name,…full name or no name at all and in fact,…the human readable names are purely optional.…The LRS will really only care about the method…by which Tom is identified.…One thing of note is that when you submit the actor…information, the Learning Record Storer will make sure…the information is in the proper format,…it will not check to make sure that…the information is actually valid.…
