This is more than just an introduction to xAPI. This is a conversation about real world training and development issues. Megan Torrence from TorranceLearning joins back with us on IDIODC to chat about how xAPI empowers you and your training team to deliver more to the business than just attendance records. You don’t want to miss this conversation. And you don’t want to be in it alone. Invite your manager and other key leadership to hear how other high performing training organizations are shifting to a learning strategy that includes xAPI. This conversation will touch on technical concerns but only at the level that everyone can understand. So don’t let the technology scare you. 2019 is the year you need to understand xAPI.

Megan and the TorranceLearning team are passionate about sharing what works in learning so they devote considerable time to teaching and sharing about Agile project management for learning experience design and, of course, the xAPI.
