xAPI is the beating heart of our core product, Riptide Elements, so it's an honor to be part of the hands-on demonstrations and share our successes at one of the industry's leading conferences.
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) November 20, 2014
Riptide Learning, a division of Riptide Software, Inc., will demonstrate the first ever xAPI-enabled training for rifle marksmanship ranges on Dec. 3 at I/ITSEC. Riptide’s REAPER proof of principle was selected by the ADL for demonstration at PlugFest—a satellite event at the 2014 Interservice/Industry Training Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC). I/ITSEC is the world’s largest modeling, simulation and training conference.
PlugFest is a special one-day event at I/ITSEC 2014 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. The Advanced Distributed Learning Directorate (ADL) hosts PlugFest to provide demonstrations and education about Experience API (xAPI)—the benchmark in learning experience tracking. Riptide will be there to demonstrate REAPER—which stands for Range Experience Acquisition Portal for Evaluation and Reporting.
REAPER is an ADL-funded effort, which leverages xAPI and Riptide’s Elements courseware delivery to provide, for the first time ever, fully integrated military training range data to individual shooters, coaches/commanders, and researchers.
“We’re very excited to be working with the ADL team,” said Nick Washburn, Director of Riptide’s Learning Division. “XAPI is the beating heart of our core product, Riptide Elements, so it is an honor to be part of the hands-on demonstrations and share our successes at one of the industry’s leading conferences with xAPI user groups from all over the world.”
REAPER provides detailed feedback and reporting of range performance, as well as interactive multimedia instruction (IMI), based on shot groups, to individual shooters. Its at-a-glance dashboards provide a variety of real-time reporting and data visualization to researchers in ways never before possible.
Riptide continues to share with the community governed by the ADL. Riptide Elements is a reference implementation of the xAPI specification. XAPI makes learning content “smart,” better measures competencies, and makes adaptive learning strategies possible.
