The Learning Technology Manager's Guide Τo xAPI

by Ben Betts / Published: Nov 27 2020

What it's about

There is a range of problems afflicting the learning systems we’ve gathered over the years. From organizations with multiple LMSs to those also deploying talent management systems, knowledge bases, social networks, social learning portals, mobile apps, and simulations. The list of potential software that the L&D department could use is growing by the day. But, for many people, it’s a real problem just trying to get the existing systems talking to each other. Never mind introducing something new and potentially impactful; the old stuff just doesn’t really work.
