Abstract

Experience API (xAPI), the evolution of SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) in e-learning content specifications, stably gains ground in education, defense and training. In this paper we shortly describe the xAPI specification, compare it to its predecessor, the SCORM, and present our novel, Pervasive Learning System, which exploits the features offered by xAPI. Our implementation provides adapted learning content to the user according to his past activities, which are monitored via xAPI. Furthermore, our system provides the course instructor with a Dashboard and several powerful Learning Analytics. The latter offer insights into the learner‘s use of the course, average scores, actions performed and so on. Our Learning System does not involve the deployment of any Learning Management System. It is a flexible integrated system that may track and monitor the actions of users without the implication of external applications, whereas the statements may origin from diverse, scattered platforms.
