From Data Visualization to Role-Specific Data Discovery

When we think about creating an xAPI data ecosystem, we often focus on how will we collect and connect data from across the Learning & Development and HR ecosystem. But once we have that data all in one place in our Learning Record Store, now we can really get to using it. In this presentation to the Fall 2017 xAPI Cohort, we explored why and how we can use data visualizations and interactive analytics to help us see patterns in our data and apply that insight to our work. Additionally, we took a look at some role-specific xAPI data dashboards from the point of view of Managers, Instructors, and Learners.

From Data Visualization to Role-Specific Data Discovery

  1. 1. From DataVisualization to Role-Specific Data Discovery xAPI Cohort Fall 2017
  2. 2. 2 First things first. Let’s get a little context.
  3. 3. Experience data is a combination of activity, learning, behavior, and performance data. By unifying data from across organizational data sources, insights into engagement, learning effectiveness, information use, and team behaviors can be identified and applied to improve business outcomes. Yet Analytics turns this experience data into experience intelligence. We’re talking about Experience. 3
  4. 4. Experience data is collected and connected from a modular ecosystem using xAPI. 4
  5. 5. 5 Experience data allows us to create beautiful and impactful data visualizations.
  6. 6. 6 But let’s face it.We’ve been visualizing data for hundreds of years.

  12. 12. 12 Let the user ask questions. When you’re designing the interface, consider how users will be able to ask questions. Build interaction tools directly into the visual display where possible; intuitive interaction allows for more fluid discovery. 1. Interactive

  15. 15. 15 Help the user see relationships between different variables. Consider the visual space and all the visual dimensions you can use to convey information. Color, shape, size, spatial organization, line thickness, hover / interactive detail. 2. Multidimensional

  19. 19. A good visualization conveys information in a dramatically smaller footprint than the same data presented tabularly. Different graph types imply different kinds of relationships – use the ones that work with your data, not against it. 19 Use visualization types that match your data sets. 3. Visually Efficient
