1009 BYOD: Easily Add Custom xAPI Tracking within Storyline

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Friday, April 22

Tracks: Video & Media

Series: BYOD

xAPI has been around for years but it has struggled to get massive adoption. You can get learning analytics in greater detail with xAPI than you ever could with SCORM. SCORM only allows you to track start, quiz, and completion data. While that is great, it does not give us a great indication of our learner’s behavior in the course. So why has it struggled? Perhaps it has been due to xAPI needing to be implemented using custom JavaScript.

In this session, we will cover the basics of an xAPI statement and how you can now easily add custom xAPI statements right within Storyline without any custom JavaScript. We will talk about tracking xAPI both within an LMS and tracking learning content, even if that content is not hosted within your LMS. We will finally discuss using an LRS to create meaningful reports that give you more significant insights into your learning courses than SCORM ever could. Time to ditch SCORM and switch over to xAPI in all your course tracking.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The basic structure of an xAPI statement
  • How to choose your action verb and add details to the statement
  • How to create an xAPI trigger in Storyline
  • How to add to the default xAPI statement to send additional information
  • How to collect the data within an LRS enabled LMS or an external LRS

Technology discussed:

xAPI, Articulate Storyline

Participant technology requirements:

Laptop with Storyline
