    Governing How Survey Questions Relate to Concepts

    Today we defined the work-to-be-done to address the need for a top-down schema of the survey, so today let’s focus on how I’m thinking about our first xAPI Profile.

    My xAPI Analytics Goals for 2023

    Now that I seem to be back in the writing groove, I feel like it’s time to commit with some intentionality to how I want to learn and grow my own skills, and what I want to have shared through writing or producing another way, this year.
