Are you having pain when trying to put together learning data?
Do you want to know how your product is used by learners and how to improve?
Do you want to track mobile learning, social learning or any innovative learning?
Do you know why your learning or training programs aren’t working well?
Have you been wondering how data analytics can help with learning and training?
Are you upset about your learning design is limited by Learning Management System?
XAPI and VisCa Are What You Need…
VisCa is our solution for Experience API, xAPI data visualization and analytics, our methodology is explained here. xAPI is really about real-time data integration and analytics, but xAPI spec. only provides data structure interoperability. We’ve worked hard to build semantic interoperability based on the Vocabulary spec. from ADL(released 2016 Feb.) to build AcrossX vocabulary and recipes.
Standardized dataviz for basic learning modules are ready for building customized, purpose-driven dashboards. We makes it easy to implement xAPI for EdTech vendors so that they can focus on their own specialties. Just follow our recipes to send xAPI statements according to use cases (activity types). Or use Visca wrappers — in this case you just need to “fill in blanks” by following instructions and the wrappers can validate statements automatically. Wrappers reduce communication efforts and error rate.
Whether you send data to Visca or keep your xAPI data in your own LRS (inside your own firewall), you can call Visca dataviz APIs to embed the visuals inside your LRS or the BI dashboard you’re using. Of course dataviz can be used standalone in Visca.
Our goal is to work with technology providers to infuse xAPI and analytics to products, and add values to their services for customers.

Here is a short tour to show the design thinking behind Visca, only sampled charts are included in Visca demo version(enter through “Demo”), and there is no filter setting, role-based dashboard and correlation setting etc. Really optimized dataviz shall be designed according to use cases and user roles.
