This slidedeck introduces the core concepts of microlearning as a learning experience design approach for seamless learning. It particularly covers the fundamental underpinning of Minimal Independent Feedback Loops and how the microlearning activities are integrated into and orchestrated in more complex learning experiences using xAPI and learning analytics.
The Experience API (xAPI) is a technical data specification that is agnostic about any type of digital learning content being delivered and consumed. xAPI allows flexible and customizable tracking of behavioral learning activities through activity streams. These activity streams break down into Verbs and Activities.
While the L&D community is increasingly familiar with the Experience API (xAPI) and its value for data collection and interoperability, few examples exist to clarify the value of xAPI as applied within different existing learning infrastructures.
With the Experience API we are able to collect more granular, high-resolution data from our learning tools and platforms. But once we have that data, how do we present it in ways that easily communicate the right insights to our stakeholders?
