The Object element of the statement defines the target of the action, or the activity in which the action was taken. This allows you to describe with arbitrary granularity the actions taken by the student including, but certainly not limited to, interactions with videos, buttons, online activities, or even physical Internet of Things devices. This video explores the Object element and demonstrates how it is constructed and used in a xAPI statement.
- [Male Instructor] The object element of the statement…defines the target of the action taken by the actor.…If you recall the motto, "I did this,"…I, is the actor,…did, is the verb,…this, is the object,…or, the thing I did.…The object is defined by an IRI…and again,…these will be URLs in the vast majority of the cases.…Similar to verbs, the URL does not need to resolve…to a functional website.…But it should whenever possible, as it may provide more…information about the object or activity.…
