xAPI Basics for Mobile Learning

Mobile learning projects can be tremendously difficult to measure and track using SCORM. As a matter of fact, there is some data that cannot be captured at all. For organizations moving into multi-screen learning platforms, capturing important information about how the audience interacts with content is a critical missing piece.

In this session, we will review examples of how xAPI can be used to report data on interactions with mobile learning content. We will discuss how you can apply and customize this approach to your mobile content, gaining valuable insight from the rich data you can collect. Specifically, we will review two examples: an interactive eBook and a mobile learning solution and assessment tool built into Adobe Captivate. You will leave with sample files that you can apply to your own projects.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How xAPI and cmi5 function
  • How xAPI and cmi5 were applied to projects to collect specific interaction data
  • How xAPI can be programmed into mobile learning solutions, what happens to the data, and how it can be used


Intermediate and advanced designers and developers.

Technology discussed in this session:

Sigil, Adobe Captivate, LRS, xAPI, LMS, HTML5, cmi5, and JavaScript.


DemoFest: Using cmi5 to xAPI-Enable HTML content for Self Assessment

The Public Health Informatics Academy developed a Critical Success Factors Self-Assessment Tool to provide guidance and readiness assessment for informatics projects. Learners can review the 8 necessary factors of a successful informatics project and self-assess their readiness for the project. The project was originally developed in xAPI but was converted to cmi5 when issues where found in identification of participants and hard-coding of credentials.
