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.
OpenSesame provides a library of on-demand e-learning courses for enterprise. It integrates with your LMS, allowing you to quickly offer a huge range of courses relevant to your industry. OpenSesame translates data from SCORM based courses into xAPI, making it an ideal data source for Watershed.

Connecting OpenSesame to Watershed
To connect OpenSesame to Watershed, simply contact the OpenSesame team with the endpoint, key and secret for your Watershed account. We recommend creating new activity provider credentials for each data source you add.
Using the Activity Editor
Much of the data coming from OpenSesame is converted SCORM data. As an older specification, SCORM data often does not include all of the detailed metadata about courses, assessments and questions that Watershed displays in reports. To solve this, you can use Watershed’s Activity Editor to tidy up the definitions of each course you are tracking, ensuring your reports are as complete, clear and useful as possible.
Reporting on OpenSesame Data
Data from e-learning courses like those provided on OpenSesame works especially well with the Activity Report, which offers both an overview of course usage and results, and question or learner level analysis. Depending on your questions, the data can also be used with any Watershed report, either on it’s own or in combination and comparison with data from other sources.
