  • Gearing Up For xAPI Camp – Amazon

    Gearing Up For xAPI Camp – Amazon

    I’m really excited about this xAPI Camp, only partially because I grew up on a farm in the-middle-of-nowhere, WA and there’s a bit of home state pride. The line-up of speakers and discussion leaders at this event is stellar! There will be big ideas and challenges from: Mark Oehlert (Manager, Learning Technology, Networked Learning, Amazon) on the opportunities for xAPI […]

Our […]

  • Two Years of xAPI

    Two Years of xAPI

    Sunday, April 26, marked two years since xAPI was released. It was released with much celebration and promise. I went back and looked through my old blog to see what I said about it back then… and apparently I was mute on the subject. The post written for ADL was pretty matter-of-fact. Looking back, I was exhausted […]
