Verbs are an important part of xAPI. They define the action taking place in the statement. These verbs can be crafted from multiple sources, or you can make your own. But there are rules to making a verb that must be followed, or your verbs may not be accepted by the LRS. This video explores rules and best practices for using and creating xAPI Verbs.
- [Instructor] Let's talk about…where the verbs we use in xAPI comes from.…One of the key things about xAPI…is that no one owns xAPI.…It's been open-sourced by ADL…so it's more or less run by the community.…ADL does curate a repository list of known verbs…at the URL displayed on your screen,…and it's highly encouraged that you use a known verb…from this list whenever possible,…although it's not required:…new verbs can be created when needed.…One way that this happens…is through xAPI communities of practice.…
These are groups that come together…to record xAPI events based on related activities…such as interacting with media files or playing games,…trade associations such as the medical professionals group,…or technical needs such as the cmi5 or SCORM profile.…The communities of practice publish profiles…that are a syntax and vocabulary, including verbs,…that define how to describe events.…But if there's nothing on the curated list…and there are no XAPI communities of practice available,…there's nothing preventing you…
