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.

What is the future of Flash for e-learning?

Posted by Marketing on March 28, 2012

Today, I got a look at the  Adbobe Flash Plugin roadmap which provides some insight into the future of Flash runtimes. The Flash Player has become the standard of delivery for e-learning content over the past 10 years because most of the delivery has been Computer Based Training (CBT) in a browser.
