We recently shared an interactive eBook at the FocusOn Learning Conference in San Diego, CA. This project was exciting because we were able to push the limits of reporting data on how individuals interacted with an interactive ebook using xAPI.
Interactive ebooks are an ideal solution for converting static workbooks and manuals to a mobile, accessible format. We worked on this project to determine whether xAPI statements would report from an interactive ebook. Our goal was to track interactions in the background using xAPI, while also creating an xAPI resource for those new to the topic.
We have been able to successfully create an interactive eBook on xAPI using both curated content from experts in the field and lessons learned from the project. This ebook reports statements to an LRS when the user launches the book, enters a page, clicks a link, and plays a video.
