Took a quick lap around the vendor hall and found the usual suspects.
Did have a productive conversation with Andy Whittaker at Rustici software.
Those folks are really thinking through the new API and exploring the possibilities of it beyond the LMS / LRS model.
An idea that came to me in Texas (and might make my IT colleagues heads explode) is the thought that there might be a way to automatically generate reportable information from wherever content is housed.
Wendy - think about a small scale prototype for proof of concept.
What if I tried to attach some mechanism for generating Tin Can Experience API statements from our FTP server? We dump non-tracked stuff in there anyway. We have control (mostly) of that corner of our web space.
You might then be able to dump it and the other stuff into a Learning Record Store, then maybe into your Big Data Warehouse for business analytics.
That goes with the Business Intelligence strategy from my understanding of where that is headed...
Definitely a conversation that needs to be continued.
