The IMS Caliper Analytics specification enables institutions to collect learning data from digital resources to better understand and visualize learning activity and product usage data, and present this information to students, instructors, and advisors in meaningful ways. Caliper defines a number of metric profiles, each of which models a learning activity or a supporting activity that helps facilitate learning. Each profile provides a domain-specific set of terms and concepts that application designers and developers can draw upon to describe common user interactions in a consistent manner using a shared vocabulary. Annotating a reading, playing a video, taking a test, or grading an assignment submission represent a few examples of the many activities or events that Caliper's metric profiles attempt to describe. Version 1.2 is planned for public release in mid 2020.

In this half-day bootcamp (morning only) the presenters will give an overview of the specification, demonstrate the process of conformance and certification and show how the specification is used in deployed products. Attendees at the bootcamp will:
  • Learn how the Caliper Analytics specification can be used within various learning systems
  • Learn how to use the Sensor API conformance test systems to become certified
  • Learn how the IMS Caliper Analytics specification uses LTI Advantage
  • Learn about the Caliper 1.2 and how it extends Caliper 1.1
  • See demonstrations of the use of the Caliper Analytics specification by certified products.
