(Orlando, FL) – On October 24th, 2017 Riptide Software announced that Nick Washburn, Riptide Software’s Learning Division Director, will be speaking at an educational session titled, “xAPI for Dummies” at the ATD 2018 International Conference and Exposition in San Diego, CA. The ATD International Conference is the largest event for talent development professionals worldwide. Former president, Barack Obama, will be featured for this event as the keynote speaker.
There is a barrier that exists in many organizations with the ability to gain and measure insight into informal learning. This type of learning is also known as self-directed learning, and may take place anywhere digitally outside of the “traditional” deliveries of training. The Experience API (xAPI) conquers this barrier by providing activity stream data about anything a user may be experiencing digitally. Nick Washburn’s speaking session will revolve around this topic and how learning practitioners can begin using xAPI in their organizations to get a holistic view of formal and informal learning.
The ATD International Conference will take place on May 6 – 9, 2018.
