Audio and Video Playback – Learning Analytics Interoperability Study


Interoperability Study – Audio/Video Playback Events


Second public draft for comment, 2014-11-28 (addition of references to Matterhorn and OpenEdX + some tidy-up)


This working document considers a number of APIs for web based audio and video playback from the perspective of asking “which events may be of interest for Learning Analytics”. Its purpose is to identify that set of events and attributes which may be considered to be commonplace, and therefore a candidate for cross-platform data stores, analysis-time mapping, implementing APIs on black-box players, improving interoperability, and potentially standardisation.

The document summarises existing learning analytics use of playback data, compares events from four players, and advances a possible common model for player events of use for learning analytics.
