xAPI eLearning Templates
Track and measure your learners’ experiences!
Quickly get started with xAPI.
We understand it can be daunting to understand and build xAPI course content from scratch. But don’t worry, we can help.
See How We xAPI
Our team of professional eLearning developers have dug deep into Articulāte Storyline, Adobe Captivate and Lectora to understand how to best use the power of xAPI in each tool.
Our style template sets come pre-populated with all of the xAPI statements, triggers, and variables that you need to start tracking data immediately. Use our games, scenarios, drag and drops, timelines, and more.
1. Download a Template from Our Library
Choose from 100s of templates that are xAPI-enabled with pre-built features using leading eLearning authoring tools.
2. Edit in Your Favorite Tool
Open the file, enter your course content, and it’s ready for publish. Or, dig into the xAPI statements on the various objects and take your tracking to an even higher level. You don’t have to make any changes if you don’t want to…it will work either way!
3. Publish Your Course
Lastly, use the xAPI tool setting to publish your course and direct it to your Learning Record Store (LRS) of choice. Then, you can start to see your learners’ activity and course data.
What is xAPI?
xAPI is an abbreviation for Experience API. You might also be familiar with it as TinCan, as it was originally dubbed. Its purpose is to give you the power to track your learners’ experiences as minimally or as extensively as you see fit.
How does xAPI work?
At its most basic, xAPI is a specification for communicating with a Learning Record Store (LRS). Don’t have one or know what an LRS is? Don’t even worry about it. We explain more, as well as have a great FREE option!
Essentially, it sends the statement: “Someone Did Something” in the form of “Actor • Verb • Object.”
Actor being the learner taking the course;
Verb being the action taken (e.g., could be a mouse click or screen tap); and,
Object being the item the action was done to, like a button getting clicked.
What Are the Benefits of Using xAPI?
- Poll your users—report on and share response data back with them.
- View user clicks in software simulations/interactions (real-time).
- Measure content engagement.
- Identify user interaction trends.
- Follow a single user throughout a course.
- Filter and report on each learner activity taken throughout a course with ease.
- No need for multi-slide interactions with xAPI templates.
- Host your courses outside an LMS.
- Send course data to any xAPI-enabled endpoint.
- Use an LRS to generate custom user/content dashboards (and embed them) with complex graphs on the fly.
Templates built in popular eLearning tools.
We use software you already know and love. That means there’s no need to learn a new tool. Just download our xAPI templates and edit them in Articulāte Storyline, Adobe Captivate, and Lectora.
Learn how to “xAPI.”
We provide source files for every template. This allows you to see exactly how we built everything. We even provide support and “How To” videos; so, dig into each file and learn how to xAPI.
Track exactly what you need.
Learning Record Store (LRS) Tested.
You need a place to collect, report on, and visualize your learners’ activity data. A Learning Record Store (LRS) does exactly that. There are many LRSs on the market and many ways to make eLearning authoring tools communicate to these LRSs properly. We’ve tested our templates in many of the leading LRSs—such as Veracity LRS and SCORM Cloud—to ensure that data is passing and displaying correctly.
