The Context element of a xAPI statement allows training professionals to collect environment or contextual information about the activity described by the statement. This can include information about the language in which the instruction was provided, where or how the instruction was provided, or tying all related statements to a single defined enrollment or registration. This video explores the Context element and demonstrates how it is constructed and used in a xAPI statement.
- [Instructor] The context element is another…optional element of an xAPI statement.…It's really nice to have though, as it helps provide…more information about the activity itself…or the environment around the activity.…Within the context element are nine defined properties,…each of these properties are themselves optional…and not required.…In this lesson we'll look at five of these.…Registration, which is a UUID that links the statements…together by enrollment or by registration.…Instructor, an agent that describes who taught the course…or managed the activity.…
Revision, this is a free-form string used to denote…updates to the activity.…This could include bug fixes, typo corrections, et cetera.…But this gets murky because you don't want to use this field…for severe upgrades.…Let's say you make significant changes to the course,…or maybe even replace it entirely.…You should use a new activity or object ID in that case,…not a different revision.…But again, it's not required to work that way.…Although it is very highly recommended.…
