Not a surprise that Bb went for IMS Caliper, but, still wondering why not xAPI that has been around and with implemeactions already?
Max - great question!
We're also evaluating xApi (Tin Can) events right now - honestly the format of the events doesn't map as cleanly as Caliper events do to the internal instrumentation of Learn SaaS (a side benefit of Blackboard being involved in the IMS working group as a contributing member). But, that doesn't mean Learn SaaS won't ever be able to emit xApi events. Stay tuned!
Can I ask about how Fresno State would use or is using xAPI events? What's the advantage from your perspective, other than some level of maturity in the telemetry space?
Still at the early R&D stage of Learning Activity Analytics initiation (for both LMS & non-LMS learning activities). Since I am not able to get much information on IMS Caliper while TinCan already has several implementations (especially, Opensource); so, I have started exploring xAPI.
ps. Does Bb have plan to implement a LRS as part of Learn or A4L?
