I/ITSEC – being held Dec. 1-5 in Orlando, Fla. – is the world’s largest modeling, simulation, and training conference, with nearly 10,000 visitors from 70 countries.
Participants will spend the morning learning about how the xAPI works and how it can be used to increase learning and performance effectiveness by using open source solutions to track and share learning data among training systems, no matter how the training is accomplished (e.g., via mobile device, social media, games, virtual environments, simulators). The afternoon will be a unique opportunity for attendees to engage with xAPI-enabled systems through hands-on tutorials. (Source)
You can register for the PlugFest using the promotion code PLGFST. ADL says the $75 registration cost is technically a one-day registration that includes lunch and access to that day’s events, papers, and exhibits. The event is open to all registered I/ITSEC participants.
Float’s lead developer, Daniel Pfeiffer, will give a short presentation about the xAPI, followed by a Q&A session.
Daniel led the development of Tappestry, the enterprise social network for learning that was the first publicly available app to use the Experience API.
