Just what is the Experience API (xAPI)? As defined by xAPI.com, the Experience API (or xAPI) is a new specification for learning technology that makes it possible to collect data about the wide range of experiences a person has during online and offline learning activities. It captures data in a consistent format about a person’s or group’s activities across many technologies. The varying systems securely communicate by capturing and sharing this stream of activities using xAPIʼs simple vocabulary. xAPI is widely viewed as the next generation in an evolving set of standards governing the development, delivery and evaluation of learning content.
