xAPI Profile Server Requirements
The xAPI profile server has very basic requirements documented in the profile specification. The profile server is also critical to supporting Learning Record Provider Professionals (see below). DISC conducted a research effort across government, industry and academia. This research identified what a profile server should do in order to serve the needs of the community. This research was documented in a report and will be made available to the public pending approval.
xAPI Learning Record Provider Professional Certification Recommendations (LRPPs)
DISC completed a research and task analysis effort to define a body of knowledge for people who work with Learning Record Providers. This body of knowledge could be the basis for certification of professionals who design learning experiences with Learning Record Providers. This work is in the process of being published and will be made available when the process concludes.
DISC is collaborating with the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative on a major effort to specify an common approach to xAPI Profiles and supporting services. More information on the effort is here.
