Watershed and TorranceLearning have been friends for several years now, and it's safe to say that they do great consulting work in the Experience API space. We love how they encourage people to tinker with the specification via xAPI cohorts, which provide opportunities to collaborate with like-minded professionals from all over the world on xAPI projects.
And that's why we're excited to share TorranceLearning's xapi.ly Statement Builder, which makes custom tracking from Storyline courses a snap.
xAPI Isn't Just for Coders
xAPI isn’t just for code writers. For example, one of our clients didn’t even know what xAPI was until he heard other clients talking about it. In other words, he could still gain actionable insights from L&D data without having to understand the underlying technology that makes the magic happen.
And to support less technical implementers of xAPI, TorranceLearning 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 implementation guide), but for the Storyline ninjas who don't write code, this served as a barrier.
Breaking Down Barriers
xapi.ly breaks down this barrier by offering a user interface that can be used to craft custom xAPI statements, including all of the Storyline variables and data you might expect from a custom interaction in Storyline.
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.
