Experience API Version 1.0.0 Released

An important milestone was achieved on April 26, marking the release of the 1.0.0 version of the Experience API (xAPI) specification.

The authoritative 1.0.0 version of the xAPI document currently resides on ADL’s GitHub site. A PDF file that represents a “snapshot” of the authoritative specification as of April 26 is available for download on ADLnet.gov.
