Collect and Measure Moodle Learning Data with the Yet xAPI LRS

Measuring learning and demonstrating its impact on business outcomes is one of the biggest challenges of modern teaching and learning. Some aspects of learning are easy to measure, like information retention – but others, like content engagement, learning preferences, and collaboration, have traditionally been very difficult to measure accurately and collect at scale.

Fortunately for today’s L&D teams, new data tools exist to help you get access to not only summative assessment data but ongoing formative, experience-based data. The Experience API, also known as xAPI, is an open data specification for granular, in-the-moment data collection across learning tools. The extra good news for you as a Moodle user is that your LMS can already produce xAPI data, with the help of a readily available plugin or two.

Learn more about how you can collect and measure Moodle learning data with the Yet xAPI Learning Record Store in this session presented by Yet Analytics and Moodle partner eThink Education.

  3. 3. © Yet Analytics, Inc 2017 3 The Experience API (xAPI) & the Learning Record Store (LRS) The Experience API, also known as xAPI, is an open data specification for granular, in-the- moment data collection across learning tools. xAPI lets you collect data from multiple systems, not just your LMS, so you can run metrics and analysis to quantify the impact of all your learning tools. xAPI data, formatted as experience statements, is collected and stored in a specialized system called a Learning Record Store, or an LRS.
  4. 4. © Yet Analytics, Inc 2017 4 What is Experience Data? Experience data is a combination of activity, learning, behavior, and performance data. xAPI is specially designed to collect all kinds of experience data – including formal and informal learning, mobile and micro learning, tradtional assessment, and collaboration. xAPI data is also granular to a level beyond previous data standards, collecting data on individual clicks and interactions, providing a great foundation for learning preference assessment and content recommendations.
