Sends xAPI statements to LRS (tested against LearningLocker and cloud.scorm.com). Some features are enabled
ONLY if the dependent plugins have also been installed. The plugin can be used as a MU plugin as well.
It has been partially tested with:
Statements that can be sent are:
- page views
- post status changes
- earning badges(1)
(2) currently only works with PulsePress theme (https://wordpress.org/themes/pulsepress/) when voting or starring
This plugin was developed at the UBC Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology.
Assumes you are using PHP version >= 5.4 (requirement of TinCanPHP Library that the plugin includes)
- plunk folder into plugins
- Activate the plugin “WP Experience API” through the “Plugins” menu in WordPress
EXTRA NOTES FOR MU:
If you want to install in wp-content/mu-plugins folder, the plugin uses a proxy loader file.
- copy wp-experience-api directory to mu-plugins folder
- copy wp-experience-api/wp-experience-api-mu-loader.php to directory one level up (same level as wp-experience-api itself AKA just under mu-plugins folder)
- it should be installed! Enjoy!
EXTRA EXTRA NOTES:
- now that the plugin uses the TinCanPHP library (http://rusticisoftware.github.io/TinCanPHP/), please make sure that it is updated regularly as well! current version is 0.11.4
- How can I add more xAPI statements to the plugin?
You can create your own plugin and use the plugin’s hooks!
- How come nothing is being sent to the LRS after I activate the plugin?
The settings are defaulted so that nothing is sent by default. Please go to the dashboard and the WP xAPI settings page to configure what statements are sent.
- What is the queue for?
The queue is used for when for some reason, LRS can’t be reached, then statements meant to be sent will be added to the queue to be sent later in the admin screen.
