It’s now been a decade since xAPI was first released, and as more organizations consider adding support, we’ve been answering more questions about how to implement the specification into an application.
And we aren’t the only ones hearing about xAPI questions. The 2022: State of xAPI Adoption Report by Megan Torrance and The Learning Guild found that the lack of knowledge or skills around the xAPI specification was the number one implementation challenge for adopters and non-adopters alike (72% for adopters, 66% for non-adopters). The study also found that lack of buy-in by leadership was reported as a top barrier (23% for adopters, 30% for non-adopters).
To help aid in the adoption and implementation of the xAPI specification, we’ve compiled an overview of why adding xAPI may benefit your organization and what to know before implementing xAPI into your application.
