The Verb element of a xAPI statement describes the action, such as launched, played, or transmogrified being described by the statement. Verbs are defined by Internationalized Resource Identifiers, or IRI’s. These ensure they are unique and cannot be confused with another verb. This video explores the Verb element and demonstrates how it is constructed and used in a xAPI statement.
- [Instructor] The verb element defines…the action being taken by the actor…in an xAPI statement.…The verb itself is defined by an IRI…which is the internationalized resource identifier…which is a super set of the URI…or the uniform resource identifier…which are just fancy ways of saying…that the verb will almost always be defined…by a normal URL.…Now this URL does not need to resolve…to a working functional webpage.…Although it really is a best practice…and just a good idea, we'll see why in a moment.…
You can also list the human readable form…of the verb in as many languages,…English, Spanish, Swahili, as you would like…to convey what that verb means.…This will also make reporting much easier…further down the line.…Let's take a look at some examples.…Here's one of the verbs we looked at before, attended.…We have the keyword id and this is paired with the URL…that defines this specific verb for attended…that we want to use.…In this case, the verb is hosted by adl.…Below this is the keyword display.…
This is entirely optional but very highly recommended.…
