In this course we will look at the basics to get you started on your first xAPI project. We start with an overview of statements which carry the data for xAPI. Then, we move into the planning stages of your xAPI project. Planning the data you want to collect is paramount to building your project. We will show how to document the systems that will produce data that will affect your data collection.
