Riptide Elements Waypoints: Inline Training for Web Based Software

Posted by Nick Washburn on January 7, 2016

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.

Client Side xAPI Error Handling

Posted by Nick Washburn on September 14, 2015

The Riptide Elements team has recently implemented some platform solutions around building and storing xAPI statements with respect to our course ware. The primary issue was: what should happen when attempting to store an xAPI statement with an error or client connection loss? The problem is twofold -- one part being, statements can occasionally be created with malformed structure, and the second is a loss of user data when a bad statement prevents others from being stored to the LRS. To tackle this problem, the Elements engineering team got together to brainstorm some potential solutions.

The launch of open source TryxAPI.com

Posted by Nick Washburn on April 21, 2015

Last month, Riptide Software participated in the most well attended xAPI event to date and it happened here in Orlando. Many vendors and service providers who’ve been working with the Experience API for a long time were invited by Aaron Silvers & Megan Bowe with their Connections Forum to speak at the first xAPI Camp. With so many excellent examples of how the Experience API is being used, and with a standing-room-only crowd at the UCF Campus, we were all pretty much blown away. All the vendors there had a chance to talk about our xAPI user stories and what other products were being used to solve customers' business problems. There was such interest and a diverse audience, it got me thinking about moving faster on something the Riptide Learning team planned to launch later this year. The time to help people with an easier path into using the Experience API is now.
