Camtasia Studio & xAPI Video Profile

In 2019, the official xAPI profile for the video was released: https://liveaspankaj.gitbooks.io/xapi-video-profile/content. There is already an example Javascript player for video files with support for this xAPI profile: https://github.com/jhaag75/xapi-videojs. Is it possible to include support for this xAPI profile in the new version of Camtasia Studio, in addition to support for SCORM? This will provide advanced video analytics capabilities, such as here: https://www.nextsoftwaresolutions.com/xapi-video-profile-demo/

Hello buylov,

Thank you for sharing those resources.  Are you currently using an LMS with support for the xAPI?  I'm also curious if there are specific features that the xAPI could give you over SCORM?

This is something that I've been keeping an eye on for a while now.

Thanks,
Ben

Hello Ben!
I use WordPress and Grassblade xAPI Companion and Grassblade LRS. I do not use SCORM. xAPI support is needed not only in order to get the course completion status, I need full-fledged analytics on watching videos (which parts of the video were watched). Please see the link I sent above: https://www.nextsoftwaresolutions.com/xapi-video-cop-announces-release-of-xapi-video-profile-v1-0/ and https://www.nextsoftwaresolutions.com/xapi-video-profile-demo/. This would be a very interesting case for Camtasia Studio. Yes, I could get such analytics using Vimeo/YouTube, but we can only post videos on our domain.
