STP107 - 5 Creative Non-eLearning Ways to Send xAPI Data
Sometimes you have to get creative to gather the data you need for your digital learning project. xAPI opens up the ability to track all sorts of activity that happens outside the LMS, but sometimes the “how” of getting that data calls for a bit of creativity.
In this session you’ll look at how to capture data about simple sensors, images and paper worksheets, and surveys. You can use this data to provide a complete picture of activity on a learning transcript, in learning analytics, in personalizing learning experiences, and triggering other actions or assignments. Three simple xAPI-based solutions will be shared in this fast-paced session: a SurveyGizmo that captures answers using xAPI; a mashup of RocketBook, Google Drive, and Zapier that can record flip charts and images as xAPI statements; and a simple door sensor that lets people know when the room is in use and sends an xAPI statement.
In this session, you will learn:
- About options for capturing data outside of an LMS using xAPI
- What xAPI statements were used to create these examples
- How to rethink what actions you can capture, both digitally and in the real world, with xAPI
