xAPI Made Easy: A Learning Analytics Infrastructure for Interdisciplinary Projects
Keywords:xAPI, learning analytics, educational virtual reality, research data management, interdisciplinary research, open science, definitions registry, scientific collaboration, research infrastructure, lab-based learning
Learning Analytics provides plenty of pedagogical uses. However, the integration of learning analytics must be accompanied by different perspectives: technical, organizational, and pedagogical. At this point, there are still gaps, e.g., the need to connect the various stakeholders and support the systematic, structured, and sustainable process. This paper presents different approaches to making the learning data standard xAPI for interdisciplinary projects easier by working on other starting points. Starting with a basic infrastructure to support the interdisciplinary collection of definitions for the standardized data format, it continues with a graphical user interface supporting different stakeholders. A modular tool for quickly connecting programming IDEs with the vocabulary is also presented. Last, a connector is shown for easier multi-modal data management using virtual reality as an example.
