    Abstract

    This short paper presents the experiences of several Dutch projects in their application of the xAPI standard and different design patterns including the deployment of Learning Record Stores. In this paper we share insights and argue for the formation of an international Special Interest Group on interoperability issues to contribute to the Open Analytics Framework as envisioned by SoLAR and enacted by the Apereo Learning Analytics Initiative. Therefore, we provide an overview of the advantages and disadvantages of implementing the current xAPI standard by presenting projects that applied xAPI in very different ways followed by the lessons learned.
