Our colleague Göran Kattenberg gave the interesting presentation ‘The potential for Learning Analytics in ILIAS based on xAPI, next to LTI‘ at the International ILIAS Conference in Dresden. Now that the recordings of the presentations have been published, we would naturally like to share Görans story here.
Göran was involved in the development of SCORM 2.0 via LETSI in 2008. This was based on an actual experience with a customer at that time. SCORM 2.0 was eventually abandoned threatening to become too complex as a successor to SCORM. However, most ideas developed for SCORM 2.0 were actually used in the xAPI in 2013. An interesting concept in xAPI is the use of layers to address the complexity issue. Working with layers is interesting and useful for an implementation model in ILIAS (from minimal vaible to more added value over time). The layered principle makes it possible to deal with the inherent complexity of data analysis and learning analysis.

International ILIAS Conference
This presentation was one of many presentations and workshops during the 18th International ILIAS Conference on 26 and 27 September 2019 in Dresden. Also take a look at the other presentations that have been filmed. And what else the program offered. This annual event is definitely worth a visit!
The next conference will be held in Dortmund on 10 and 11 September 2020.
