A Review: xAPI Camp -- San Francisco, CA

Posted by Alex Horan on March 2, 2016

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.

Riptide Elements Goes to xAPI Camp!

Posted by Nick Washburn on July 14, 2015

xAPI Camp isn’t your typical summer camp full of sing-a-longs, campfires, and hiking trails; it is a one-day event that draws in leaders and vendors in the learning products and xAPI field. The next one-day event takes place on July 27th and is hosted by Amazon in Seattle, Washington. Which is  a pretty big deal. This is the second time Riptide will be attending an xAPI Camp we are looking forward to seeing the familiar faces and meeting some new ones.
