RISC VTA

Watershed can receive data from any xAPI conformant Activity Provider. Many Watershed reports are flexible and you can configure Watershed to display useful visualizations and metrics from almost any xAPI data set. To help you get the most out of your data, we’re working with a number of product vendors to ensure that the data they send is optimized to produce the best possible results in Watershed. We want to help you to configure Watershed reports in the best way possible to display that data.

The RISC VTA LMS offers tracking of events such as registering for, launching, completing, passing and failing lessons. RISC VTA LMS will also generate xAPI tracking data from SCORM courses. The quality and completeness of this translated SCORM tracking data depends on the quality and completeness of data sent by the original SCORM course. Forums and discussion groups are also tracked.

 Related: You can also get xAPI data from RISC's PDF Annotator.

This guide tells you how to connect the RISC VTA LMS to Watershed and configure Watershed to get the best results.
