LTSC Monthy Meeting, second Tuesday of the month, 9:00am EST. Contact the Chair.
The Learning Technology Standards Committee is chartered by the IEEE Computer Society Standards Activity Board to develop internationally accredited technical standards, recommended practices, and guidelines for educational technology. We anticipate and solve market problems caused by incompatible systems and data formats. Currently, groups are working in the following areas:
Actionable Data Book. A sponsored IEEE Industry Connections community is exploring the future of educational publications.
Project-based Learning Opportunities. A new working group (P1484.21) is exploring the possibility of describing internships and other on-the-job learning opportunities and of building a brokerage system to match prospects with appropriate jobs.
Competencies. A proposed study group will explore the possibility of defining a universal language for describing competency frameworks, which will allow these frameworks to be compatible and interoperable across communities of practice. See the call for participation.
Resource Aggregation Models for Learning Education and Training. This working group has developed solutions for semantic interoperability across the various elearning content packaging schemes.
We welcome new members who can contribute their time and expertise to understanding and solving product interoperability issues caused by the rapid advance of new educational technologies. Most of the LTSC's current projects started in late 2014 or 2015. Individuals interested in participating are encouraged to contact the LTSC Chair or the relevant working group or study group chair:
