Many thanks to the folks at the E-Learning Guild for inviting us to share our experience finding xAPI and ultimately implementing it in learning games.  Our session 'SXAPI103 A Deep Dive on Implementing xAPI in Learning Games" reviewed how we started with silos of game data and create a learning game analytics platform at Dig-iT! Games using xAPI.  We shared how the project evolved, lessons learned and the importance of having an organized approach to context based URIs.  Participants were introduced to our open source community, the free Unity game engine API for using xAPI in serious games and additional tools.

Today we are please to announce access to the Beta release of our Unity API asset for using xAPI in games and simulations. This article is provided to community members as guidance on how you can get started with a small pilot project implementing GBLxAPI into a K-12 game/application that has been developed using the Unity 3D engine with our community API for Unity. The instructions that follow assume that the product is a learning game however the same guidance would apply for use with using xAPI to collect data in a non-learning project.

The GBLxAPI community has published a game and learning record store online for live demo use.  A version of the Dig-iT! Games 3 Digits game is available to play for free by anyone wishing to explore how this new method of capturing learning data from games and apps works.  This game is an educational game that teaches math skills while learning the Maya’s unique base 20 number system!  The game incorporates historical artifacts and information on the Maya culture.

The GBLxAPI project has now included the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in the growing xAPI vocabulary catalog for K-12 applications. Developers of learning content can now include specific NGSS standards in addition to the science related vocabulary that are included in the global library.  In this article we will discuss the broader GBLxAPI science vocabulary and then how to incorporate the NGSS standards in your xAPI statements when necessary.

Every year the Games for Change organization holds their annual conference bringing together individuals and organizations that are making a positive impact on society with games.  The 2018 conference marked 15 years for Games for Change and the GBLxAPI project was there to brief the community on the project and announce it as a community of practice in the xAPI consortium.  The project brief presented the NSF research project as part of the Games for Learning Summit.
