Watershed and TorranceLearning have been friends for a number of years now. TorranceLearning does great consulting work in the Experience API space, encouraging people to tinker with the specification via the xAPI cohorts that provide opportunities to collaborate with like-minded professionals from all over the world on xAPI projects.
xAPI Isn't Just for Coders
xAPI isn’t just for code writers. For example, one of our clients didn’t even know what it was until he heard other clients talking about it. He was still able to gain actionable insights from his data, without having to understand the underlying technology that makes the magic happen. And to support less technical implementers of xAPI, TorranceLearning has just released a new product, xapi.ly Statement Builder, which is designed to make custom tracking from Storyline courses considerably less technical.
That's fine for certain users (see instructions in our xAPI guide), but for the Storyline ninjas who don't write code, this served as a barrier.
Breaking Down Barriers
It’s still a technical process, but if you’re the kind of Storyline power user that needs to track custom interactions, you’re already technical enough to use xapi.ly. And most important, xapi.ly works without having to write code.
After you sign up for xapi.ly, the next steps are easy. Visit their website for a step-by-step breakdown. You can read more on the xapi.ly website and get all of the details from their documentation.
