What is xAPI?

The Experience API (xAPI) is a format for recording experiences. It can track actions such as reading an article, answering a question, or watching a training video. xAPI was designed to address gaps in the existing SCORM standard, such as offline training and mobile training accessed outside of a web browser. It is easily readable by humans and computers, and allows for simple integration and interoperability between disparate systems. The Experience API is supported and recommended by the US Department of Defense and the US Department of Education.
