A Deep Dive into the Whys of using xAPI in your elearning, wrapped up in a how-to on creating your own interactive ebook that reports out xAPI statements!
Kharis O'Connell, O'Reilly
Today’s interaction designers generally operate within well-researched and documented constraints for both web and mobile applications—but not for much longer. By mixing the real and virtual worlds, new products such as Hololens, DAQRI, Meta, and Magic Leap clearly demonstrate that designers no longer have to confine user interfaces to a screen.
In this O’Reilly report, author Kharis O’Connell guides you through the new realm of mixed reality. You’ll discover the difference between designing for arenas rather than web or mobile screen rectangles, and examine some of the supporting tools, technologies, and techniques that will enable you to make the transition.
Join the cohort for another dive into xAPI and what you can do to make it work for you, your organization, and the entire industry!
No xAPI experience necessary. Lots of friendly, curious folks. Real, live projects with real, live products. Virtual meetings so anyone in the world can participate. It’s all plus with no minus!

Consider this introductory e-book a crash course – everything you’ll need to know to have a basic understanding of the Experience API™, otherwise known as xAPI. xAPI is an open data interoperability specification originally developed to get a better picture of how, when, and why learning happens both on and offline.
This course focuses on the technical side of xAPI: getting up-and-running with a Learning Record Store.
You won’t need to be a programmer to take part, but you will need some experience of implementing servers, software and systems administration in general.
You’ll also need access to a server (either on cloud, like AWS, or on your own devices) and administration rights to install new software.
Virtual, augmented, and mixed reality applications are poised to explode into the consumer market. The inevitable explosion will mainstream this technology and transform how we look at content, opening new opportunities not only for how we entertain ourselves, but also for how we connect, share, and learn.
For this eBook, we reached out to members of the eLearning Guild community who are already exploring the possibilities of these emerging technologies. What follows is a collection of seven different perspectives examining the possibilities and implications that virtual, augmented, and mixed reality applications have for learning and performance.
