The xAPI Users Group is a not-for-profit association that promotes the use of the Experience API (xAPI) in Australia. We hold regular events and provide our members with resources and assistance to implement this technology. Through sharing information our members help one another to implement leading edge learning in organisations across Australia.
Our Mission is to help Australia’s Learning and Development community to achieve their business goals. We support our members as they deploy xAPI technology empower and develop their teams.

Learning Environments and Cultures are increasingly the vision for employers but sadly, it is too often near impossible to bring together all of the learning opportunities presented to our staff into a coherent whole. We're hampered by inconsistencies, inflexible tools and poor reporting. xAPI is key to achieving these kinds of outcomes and in this session we are delighted to be able to share yet another real life case study with you. One of the more remarkable xAPI transformations is that of Tritium which went from zero to world leader in the space of four months. In this not-to-be-missed session we hear from the Digital Learning Specialist who will talk to us about the lessons learned. In fact, prior to this project, Tritium had no L&D team at all let alone a comprehensive digital learning strategy.
The organisation's vision was for a broad strategy and a unified environment for learning. Four months later, a state-of-the-art xAPI enabled environment was in place, demonstrating how xAPI can be used to bring an learning environment together.
Join us to hear from Julian about his work planning and implementing this fascinating project.

In late 2020, Global Vision Media teamed with CQ University to implement what has become the biggest xAPI dataset in the world. The project is for a large Australian university catering to over 30,000 students. In a world first, they have created an xAPI-driven integrated learning ecosystem across the university to support students in an unprecedented way. Combining AI and the largest xAPI dataset in the world with the Veracity analysis LRS, CQU Will soon know how to support an individual student before the student does! If you want to hear the true power of xAPI and how learning will look in the 21st century, this session is a must see!

More than 95 percent of surveyed learning professionals want to measure the impact of learning, but most admit that they don't know where to start.
Join us for this fast-paced seminar that explores how several organisations - spanning financial, retail, healthcare, and consulting - are successfully using learning analytics to measure learning effectiveness. Ali will share snapshot case studies of how these companies have built modern learning ecosystems using xAPI to measure impact across the organisation. During this session you will:

Internationally acclaimed xAPI and Instructional Design expert Megan Torrance will join us to explain why xAPI is changing the profession forever.
For the first time, we can quantify how our learners interact with our materials in as much detail as we want.
We have moved a long way from Did they get that question right? to:
For decades, trainers have lamented the fact that the answers to questions such as these were simply too hard to answer. xAPI is changing all that and in this session, we explore how we can harness it in our work.

This webinar will describe common use cases for xAPI data after it is stored in an LRS. The xAPI community publishes many resources about tracking with xAPI but, using the tracked data is often an afterthought.
During this session, we will:
There is no prior knowledge required for this session. Topics will be accessible for anyone with interest in an xAPI-enabled environment.

In this session we go to the source. Rustici Software is the inventor of the revolutionary xAPI protocol, and their passion for what they do is truly infectious!
We are pleased to have the opportunity to welcome Chris Tomkins to our free webinar series to hear why it is that xAPI is such a revolutionary and exciting adventure.
xAPI was created by people who love learning and love teaching and who are passionate about the opportunities that come with the unchaining of that process from the constrainsts imposed by legacy approaches.
Learn the thinking behind the development of xAPI itself and why it is that this sigle development is set to transform the way we all learn

According to the 70:20:10 model, most trainers only ever analyse what learners are doing ten percent of the time. For years we’ve wanted to know more about people’s actual experiences as they learn on the job or interact with their peers. That’s where the Experience API comes in.
The Experience API lets us support our staff while they perform their jobs – it tells us what training works and how to improve it. It tells us the ROI from our training to support our programmes and ensures that microlearning is delivered at the right instant to those who most need it.
In this session we explain how xAPI achieves all this in a non-technical way. Participants will look at practical real-world applications and explore the potential for xAPI in their own workplaces and how to go about setting up a trial on a shoestring.
The Aussie xAPI Cohort #team-downunder presentation made quite a splash recently! Together Australians showed the world just how powerful xAPI can be when we teamed with volunteer firefighters to develop something that will revolutionise the way volunteers are trained.

Largest xAPI Implementation in world rolled out in Queensland
In late 2020, Global Vision Media implemented what has become the biggest xAPI dataset in the world. The project is for a large Australian university catering to over 30,000 students. In a world first, they have created an xAPI-driven integrated learning ecosystem.
From 2021 all students will be able to study both formally and informally as a centralised system draws information together from multiple sources. Taking it a step further, the University will feed the combined data to artificially intelligent systems that will design individualised learning supports based upon a big picture view of student needs. Supported by an import of a vast trove of data collected over the space of five years, the AI can look for patterns in student work that allow it to provide continuous recommendations to improve each student’s outcomes.
Until this project, no one had ever attempted to import well over half a billion xAPI records into one LRS. Now they have. Check out the awesome webinar below:
ADL has announced that an xAPI Profile server will be released later this year. This is part of an ongoing effort to standardise xAPI and discussion notes are Available online. Interested parties are encouraged to apply to join a topic squad and contribute to this effort.
