Standard bearers close ranks

The Standard Bearers Close Ranks
Quote: “For most educators, the various eLearning specifications and standards organizations seem far removed from the classroom. Certainly, many have heard of IMS, OKI, and ADL SCORM. However, most would have difficulty explaining how any of these key specifications might affect their online teaching. The reality is that several groups are producing specifications that will affect the way technology is used in online education.”
Comment: What’s needed is simple standards. Period. Right now, standard bodies are creating massively complex standards that are incomprehensible to the people who are supposed to adopt them – instructors/designers. There’s a significant disconnect here.
