Ready to get pedantic? Picking the best verb for Statements
You know the English verb you think describes your experience, but you can’t find an xAPI verb with an identifier that matches it. You’ve found other xAPI verbs that seem similar, but you want to use the verb you have in mind. What do you do?
Listen to Brian Miller as he dives into semantics and how that plays into making sure the data you generate is useful and usable across systems. He’ll discuss natural language and how that impacts semantic interoperability. Brian will tackle two distinct questions (and enjoy getting pedantic):
- From a best-practice standpoint, is it appropriate to create your own verb with a similar or matching definition to an existing one in the public domain?
- Does the xAPI specification allow an LRS or other system to correlate or equate different terms for the sake of shared data, reporting and analytics?
