This Week in MakingBetter: Getting Our Learn On

This week is busy, and we have a new Faith No More album to stream from NPR, so let’s get to it, gang!

The #LEARNxAPI MOOC is starting tomorrow, Tuesday 5/12. There are so many great resources being curated for people who want to get into the business and the tech of xAPI, we could not be more proud to be a part of this. There’s still time to sign up and with over 300 registered already, you won’t be the only one (ahem) getting your learn on.

As part of the MOOC, on Thursday at 2pm Eastern, I’ll be hosting a Twitter chat on xAPI. Even if you’re not enrolled, you’re certainly welcome to join us. Just look for the #LEARNxAPI hashtag… we’ll be around and likely rowdy.

This week is just a prelude for the blitz of xAPI activity around ATD’s International Conference and Expo in Orlando, FL starting this weekend. On Saturday, 5/16, the launch of #TRYxAPI will be happening thanks to Nick Washburn and Riptide Software. John Delano of Saltbox and I will be presenting and facilitating things that help professionals make the business case for learning experiences, as well as design them. Nick will share some case studies where open source xAPI projects are put to work. It’s free, with a full bar (not a typo), so you should join us if you’re around from 12:30-5:00pm. RSVP now!

Next Tuesday, the xAPI party bus descends on Taverna Opa for the xAPI/Tin Can Meetup hosted by Rustici Software and Saltbox. Thankfully, I just get to hang there while they do all the hosting, so I’ll be looking forward to it. Space is limited so you should let them know you’re coming so an appropriate amount of hummus is available (it’s their joke… 😉

If you’re at ATD ICE next week and you want to grab some coffee or a Cuban sandwich, just say the word!
