Find Out What Content Is Popular

xAPI statements generated from likes and downloads help you see what content is being used.

Measure Notable Activity

Key activity streams are collected meaning you only get the data you need from your Degreed reporting.

How Does It Work?

Using the Integration Pipeline to process the statements
We use our Integration Pipeline to poll the getAbstract API via their REST interface - to get access we require the getAbstract token for the particular instance, allowing us to poll the API.
We poll every hour and pull through the activity data into the ETL tool, at which point we transform the raw JSON into xAPI statements.
There are then pushed into the LRS using the app key and secret for the chosen store.
