You’re likely going to be reading up seriously on how to work with learning data sometime in 2021. This will be true regardless of whether you work in online K-12, Higher Education or professional training — anywhere in the world. If you will “own” xAPI know-how on your team (or maybe for the whole organization), I want to help you.
Megan and I have certainly been in your shoes.
So, I made a resolution for 2021 – I’m going to try and blog daily again like I did maybe 15 years ago about Flash For eLearning. It’s time for us all to level our data game up.
First, let’s start with this webinar (above), where I recently demonstrated a new tool coming in Q2 from ADL, the xAPI Profile Server we produced for ADL with our friends from Veracity. In the video, I explain what this is, what problems it’s going to help with and how you’ll likely put it to work. Spoiler: it’s a tool to help you author and serve xAPI Profiles, doing a lot of the heavy lifting of complex rules thingies for you.
Next, I’ll blog about how to frame a problem space to apply learning analytics with dimensions.
