Tom Creighton iFest Workshop

xAPI Intro Workshop

Tom Creighton

This workshop will focus on providing a high level overview of the Experience Application Programming Interface (xAPI). This session will focus on technical content and demonstrations.

The goals of this workshop are to introduce the concept and value of learning analytics, define and describe xAPI, consider the potential uses of xAPI (and associated learning analytics) in your organization, and discuss other open questions, such as security, privacy, and implementation best practices. The workshop is best suited for a technical audience, but anyone involved in a learning ecosystem may benefit.


Tom Creighton is a software engineer who has worked with DoD’s Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative since 2004. He has worked on some of ADL’s core technologies such as SCORM and xAPI, contributing to the specifications, building examples, and creating the conformance test software.
