Looking for ways to track what your learners, teachers and programs really do? The Experience API is a new, simple, method of tracking data across multiple applications and systems that provides as much detail as you want in an easily digestible format. Big data approaches increasingly drive education analytics – this workshop will help get you started in effective use of experience analytics to assess all aspects of learning. It’s not about learning objects any more; it’s what you do with them and the activity streams that arise from this. 

Learning objectives: 

  1. Learn where xAPI can provide value
  2. Explore what to consider when setting up your xAPI environment
  3. Explore xAPI structure designs to address key questions and allow for emergent data

Format: highly interactive with a mix of initial didactic ground work followed by small group problem solving.
