Apereo webinar examining two critical standards in learning analytics space - xAPI, and IMSGlobal Caliper.
The presenters are Aaron Silver, from DISC, the organisation tasked with xAPI interoperability and conformance, and Anthony Whyte of the University of Michigan, who has been centrally involved in recent IMS Caliper developments.
The drive to deliver education at scale coupled with a demand for accountability backed by measurability has spurred the application of “big data” principles to the business of education.
Two learning technology specifications, ADL’s xAPI and IMS Global’s Caliper Analytics, now offer standardized approaches that aim to address the data and semantic interoperability issues inherent in the blending/sharing of learning data between systems.
