What is A Learning Record Store?

Within a learning experience platform, the learning record store serves as the repository of all learner records across all the modules they have been involved in. Its use as a central record store is a vital part of the larger effort LXPs make to integrate multiple systems for learning across as many topics as the system designers and content curators need.

It's an essential tool for complex platforms that integrate multiple learning systems to reach different goals for different users, and it helps platform managers monitor which learning systems an individual has accessed, as well as how quickly they made progress and which ones have been completed.

For learning platforms that use the xAPI standard based on AICC and SCORM, it is an essential component, without which the process flow cannot operate. They're used by both LMS systems that use the xAPI framework to report results back to a central authority and multi-system LXPs that need to record individual progress in different learning systems, allowing L&D departments to design systems for individual departments or roles while still integrating access for users whose roles straddle multiple locations or duties across them.
