Is there a way to manage learning experiences that happen in the workplace, outside of a formal training environment? There is, and it's called the Experience API (xAPI), also known as the “Tin Can” API. This evolving eLearning standard goes beyond the limits of today’s LMS’s and allows organizations to track experiences across a learning ecosystem.

In this knowledge-building session, Gary Heganbart will:
  • Introduce us to the xAPI
  • Explain its place in the learning ecosystem
  • Show practical applications through a real-world example
  • Share take-aways from DevLearn 2014 Conference & Expo
This event will benefit members who:
  • Evaluate purchasing eLearning and LMS's for their organization
  • Design eLearning and want to know how their eLearning will fit into future trends like xAPI
  • Create performance-based learning experiences


5:30 – Check-in and networking, light snacks provided
6:00 – Golden Gate Chapter updates
6:15 – Event
7:15 – Questions and Wrap-up
