Abstract

With the evolution of e-learning and its transformation into mobile learning, SCORM fails to keep up with learner’s need to discover knowledge through multiple and diverse sources. ADL’s Experience API (xAPI) fills this gap and offers a novel and flexible way to keep track of a learner’s activities and progress. In this paper, the xAPI and the concept behind it are shortly discussed, a brief comparison with SCORM is attempted and an innovative implementation of an adaptive LMS-free learning system with the use of xAPI is presented.
