The Art of Knowledge
Billy: But Mom I Don't Want to Play With IEEE
Mom: Well Everyone Else Does and So Do You
Billy: But He's No Fun and Makes me Curse A Lot
So most of my mornig has been spent looking through some other blogs and researching some companies. But then I hit the big IEEE wall. Our friends are back and they are the "Learning Technology Standards Committee". Now I love IEEE. It's an absolute necessity to make things happen. You just can't trust on the best product always "making it" for everyone else. Therefore you need them around to make sure everyone plays by the same rules. But, "He's No Fun and Makes Me Curse A Lot". Here's what I got off their site that I understood:
Purpose of the Learning Object
- Purpose of Proposed Project
- To enable learners or instructors to search, evaluate, acquire, and utilize Learning Objects.
- To enable the sharing and exchange of Learning Objects across any technology supported learning systems.
- To enable the development of learning objects in units that can be combined and decomposed in meaningful ways.
- To enable computer agents to automatically and dynamically compose personalized lessons for an individual learner.
- To compliment the direct work on standards that are focused on enabling multiple Learning Objects to work together within a open distributed learning environment.
- To enable, where desired, the documentation and recognition of the completion of existing or new learning & performance objectives associated with Learning Objects.
- To enable a strong and growing economy for Learning Objects that supports and sustains all forms of distribution; non-profit, not-for-profit and for profit.
- To enable education, training and learning organizations, both government,public and private, to express educational content and performance standards in a standardized format that is independent of the content itself.
- To provide researchers with standards that support the collection and sharing of comparable data concerning the applicability and effectiveness of Learning Objects.
- To define a standard that is simple yet extensible to multiple domains and jurisdictions so as to be most easily and broadly adopted and applied.
- To support necessary security and authentication for the distribution and use of Learning Objects.
Here are your players: Advisory Board
I tell you what, IEEE is a deep website. They have minutes for all their meetings and all the suggestions ever presented on a project or the paperwork revolving around that project available to you. Example
