Today most employee learning happens during unstructured on-the-job experiences, social interactions, and while perusing informal learning sources. The challenge for organizations is tracking and reporting on all of this learning in a consistent, reliable way. A great way to do this is by using the new learning technology specification, the Experience API (xAPI), which allows learning content and systems to speak to each other to record and track all types of learning experiences. In this Infoline, you will learn

  • how and why the xAPI has emerged as the next-generation learning standard

  • how to implement xAPI in your organization

  • the benefits and challenges of xAPI

  • how to select appropriate training systems

  • how to assess your organization’s readiness for this software standard.
