The OG's of xAPI: With Special Guest Aaron Silvers

Episode Summary

This week on Instructional Designers In Offices Drinking Coffee, Brent and Chris bring on one of the most influential stewards of the xAPI standard, Aaron Silvers. He knows more about the history of xAPI than most and holds all the scars of battles won taking it from idea to Government standard. We're going to take a trip down memory lane and talk about WHY xAPI needed to be born, and how a small but dedicated band of OG's made that happen. Aaron is now working with analytics and big data in a BIG way. So we're certain to cover that topic as well. Join us for a conversation you won't soon forget. Aaron E. Silvers works with leaders, teams and data to accelerate innovation, cost savings, and organizational effectiveness aligned with business objectives in high compliance environments. A common theme throughout his 20-year career is an embrace of emerging technology, creativity and entrepreneurialism that charts paths towards the most beneficial outcomes for all stakeholders. At Elsevier, Aaron is responsible for learning analytics that help reduce the variability of clinical care and the retention of newly graduated nurses to improve patient health outcomes.
