Facilitated discussion: A Standards-Based Approach to Tracking Learner Activities

May 19, 4:10 PM - 5:00 PM

Peter Greene1 and Craig Wiggins2
Johns Hopkins University, 2Advanced Distributed Learning Co-Lab

Technical specifications like the eXperience API (XAPI) make it possible to track a broad range of activities, from live activities to e-learning and simulation. Mr. Wiggins will present a demonstration that shows how XAPI can be used with MedBiquitous standards to track activities in relation to established frameworks for competency and performance. How could these technologies be leveraged in health professions education, and what strategies should we deploy as a community to leverage them effectively?
