Earlier this year Riptide’s Learning Division added to their html5 courseware arsenal. In addition to the Elements courseware, that delivers highly interactive elearning to any device and in any language, Elements released an innovative new courseware product, Waypoints. Elements® WayPoints provides an in-line training experience that can work for any web-based software. The major portion of WayPoints courseware involves a unique learning experience in-line with the product and it provides simulations through guided workflows that have the learner directly interfacing with the software. Using xAPI, Waypoints also provides competency based assessments and training activity data.
It is happening again. The UK is showing America we stumbled on something good and they are helping improve it. American guitarist and songwriter, Joe Walsh, confesses that it was the Rolling Stones and others in the UK who showed him the music that was going on in his own backyard. Blues, R&B, and Rock-n-Roll were all art forms that started from Blues/Jazz in America. The Rolling Stones came to America in the early 60's to find their musical blues heroes broke and obscure here. The Stones revealed their American music heroes to the world and in so doing helped give them actual music careers. Maybe it is a leap to correlate xAPI and data interoperability to Rock and Roll and maybe not. I can hope for an xAPI invasion for Higher Ed in the US.
I was asked to present at the first xAPI camp of 2016 on behalf of Elements team on the advantages of using a centralized Learning Record Store (LRS) within an enterprise learning ecosystem using xAPI. Whether you are new to the specification or have an xAPI enabled application, these camps are a great way to gain knowledge about the Experience API.

Ever wanted to capture the whole learning experience of your user, but not sure where to start? In this blog I will present on different ways that xAPI has benefited the learning experience and the learning ecosystem. All the case studies in this blog can be found at TryxAPI.com
Riptide Learning Director, Nick Washburn, has been invited to present an eLearning webinar for the Association for Training and Development (ATD) member audience. Riptide Elements® software has a diverse and growing client case of enterprise implementations that will help to inform participants of the session entitled,“Demystifying the Enterprise Learning Ecosystem.” The software framework provides highly interactive, device agnostic, multilingual e-learning all over the world. With technology progressing at such a rapid pace, many industry professionals may not realize what is possible right now, how easily it can be done, and how relatively inexpensive it is compared to just 5 or 10 years ago. By leveraging new technology, Riptide Elements is able to connect information to multiple LMS’, HR systems, talent management, using SCORM/AICC, and more.
With the proliferation of complex online services and web based software, training and documentation have become crucial in acquiring and retaining users. Enterprise web-based software need to train their users on how to use their software. That may seem like an obvious statement but providing effective, up-to-date software training for software applications is critical to people actually using the software so they can do their job.
Elements®, Riptide Software’s configurable LMS offering that delivers to any mobile device in any language, was recognized as Brandon Hall Group’s Best Advance in Learning Management Technology category. Now entering its 21st year, the awards recognize the best organizations that have successfully developed and deployed revolutionary SaaS products.
With the Learning Management System (LMS) industry market on track to be worth $11.34 billion by 2020, the LMS is the most influential segment of learning and development (L&D) market. In the medium to large business market there is a sense that the L&D function is gaining leverage within modern technology IT departments. The need to manage the e-learning process along with effective L&D programs has driven a growth in the LMS market but there is a growing list of dissatisfied customers in the legacy LMS status quo. Why? Because LMS’ have not changed with the times in some cases they have never actually finished the task of creating a complete offering.
