Boston, MA:  Following the arrival of xAPI into the mainstream at the eLearning Guild’s 2016 DevLearn Conference & Expo, HT2 Labs are sharing their insights into how organisations can use learning analytics to better understand performance at the Learning Solutions Conference and Expo, later this month.

Ahead of the highly anticipated release of their new book, Investigating Performance: Design and Outcomes With xAPI, HT2 Labs’ Data Scientist Janet Laane-Effron will be co-hosting the Pre-Conference xAPI Camp alongside Sean Putman; for a day filled with xAPI case studies, problem solving, and networking.

xAPI and learning analytics are fast becoming a key area of interest for organisations looking to better understand performance, as Laane-Effron explains:

“xAPI’s potential is already being realised by early adopters; creating benefits not just for L&D but for their organisations.  Sean [Putnam] and I have seen businesses use xAPI data to build real understanding of course impacts on performance as well as to inform high-value improvements in course design.  

 

“It’s been exciting to see the growth of knowledge in the xAPI community; it used to be that people came  to xAPI Camp to learn what xAPI is; now we have early adopters coming back to share what they’ve learned and what they’ve achieved; we’re moving from “what is xAPI” to “how to use xAPI”.

Continuing the data theme, on Day 1 of the Learning Solutions Conference, Sean and Janet will also be delivering a morning session as part of the Data and Measurement Track at 10.45am.

Investigating Performance Using Data (Session LS1005) will take attendees on a deep dive into how data should shape learning system design, including exploring the basic principles of how to use data effectively and how to design to provide meaningful feedback – looking at outside inspiration from fields that are already doing this well: user experience design (UXD), web analytics, and business intelligence.

Away from the conference, HT2 Labs will also be exhibiting at Booth 103 – giving delegates an opportunity to get hands on with the latest version of the Curatr Social Learning Platform, and Enterprise Learning Record Store, Learning Locker.  

Attendees will also have the opportunity to pick up a hard copy of HT2’s latest whitepaper, The Learning Technology Manager’s Guide to xAPI, and to lock in discounted Learning Locker Starter Pack pricing.

Learning Solutions, co-located with Learning & Performance Ecosystem, takes place at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista, March 22-24.  Further details around HT2’s show activities and ticket discounts can be found at ht2labs.com/lscon.
