702 BYOD: No Code xAPI Implementation
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Thursday, April 13
Tracks: Data & Platforms
In this session, we will explore no-coding options and ways to send xAPI without writing a single line of code. We will first explore how to publish from Articulate Storyline and Adobe Captivate without doing anything extra and get basic xAPI tracking in your LMS. We’ll then look at how to control the data you can send in Storyline with some simple triggers and even send the statements to an external LRS from your LMS. In case you need to host your content outside an LMS, we will walk through a free tool that will give you the code you need to copy and paste right into Storyline or Captivate, making it east to track courses hosted outside an LMS. We will wrap up by talking about a way to track everyday applications like SurveyMonkey, Trello, or Google Docs to Watershed LRS or Grassblade LRS without having to write a single line of code. Now you have no excuse to start using xAPI right away!
In this session you will learn:
- How to export to cmi5 packages for xAPI tracking (in Storyline & Captivate)
- To add custom triggers to Storyline to control what gets sent over to the LRS
- How to capture who the actor is when content is outside an LMS
- How to capture the actor and control all xAPI statements being sent to the LRS
- To connect everyday applications like SurveyMonkey to an LRS using Zapier
