How will xAPI benefit my organization?

You’re an organization supporting the learning and development of your people; how will xAPI help you?

Key benefits

xAPI brings the following key benefits to an organization adopting xAPI:

Better understand learning and its impact

With xAPI you can better track the learning activities that already happen in your organization, including those that were impossible to track with older interoperability specifications. You can build up a clearer picture of what learning is happening in your org and the impact of that learning on your business.

Improve your learning solutions

For information about what learning activities work best leads to better informed and more effective learning solutions. Further, you can use xAPI to design innovative, engaging and social learning experiences. Removing the limitations of older e-learning standards also frees you to make better use of modern social and mobile technologies.

Integrate your systems

At its heart, xAPI is an interoperability specification that allows learning technologies to talk to one another. Integrating systems is often a lot of work and cost, but integrating two xAPI conformant systems can be considerably faster and cheaper. This includes migrating data from old learning systems to new ones.
