xAPI provides an event-driven method for capturing student engagement and performance metrics. This allows training practitioners to collect, correlate, and report on student performance to expose gaps in training needs, as well as demonstrate training effectiveness.
- [Instructor] So why use xAPI, well the best thing…about xAPI is you can track anything you want.…Page launches, interactions, user platforms,…test scores, answer selections, video statistics,…how many times is someone playing a video, how many…times is someone pausing a video, the time students…are spending on pages, anything else you could even…think of can all be tracked with experience API…through activity statements.…And the worst thing about xAPI is you can track anything…you want.…
You need to avoid the spaghetti approach of just…throwing things at the wall to see what sticks,…you need to be thoughtful about what you're collecting,…how, and why, it's really easy to just start collecting…everything.…The problem with that is then you have to go back…and sort out what's actually useful and worse if you find…data that you do want, but it's in the wrong format…and isn't useful.…One way to think about this is who will use the data.…So here's an example of a class I used to teach for a local…library, there were numerous people involved in that event…
