Challenges of tracking learner's experience and measuring its impact

Training managers are always faced with the challenges of capturing learner's experience and measuring its impact

The big questions for training development managers and their organizations are:

  • Is the training helping our business to run smoothly and grow?
  • What's the impact of the training we provide and does it align our business objectives?
  • What it ROI on the investments we have made in training tools and subscriptions?

These are frequently tossed around and with wide-ranging implications, yet as cavalier, they might seem they are difficult questions to answer, if not impossible. It would only be simpler if the training systems or tools could capture the learner’s behavior, experience, and engagement, which can then be analyzed in a way that could address these questions. Now, is there anything out there, that does this, well there is and it's in its infancy. There are specifications (xAPI) and tools build on industry standards called the "learning record store" (LRS) that could augment your LMS or the learning tools and it can track the learner's experience.

What's Experience API ( xAPI )?

xAPI  lets applications share data about human performance (broadly defined). More precisely,  xAPI  lets you capture (big) data on human performance, along with associated instructional content or performance context information (i.e., experience).  xAPI  applies “activity streams” to tracking data and provides sub-APIs to access and store information about state and content. This enables nearly dynamic tracking of activities from any platform or software system, from traditional Learning Management Systems to mobile devices, simulations, wearables, physical beacons, and more.
