Adopting Standards for European Educational Content
This work is part of the <a href='http://icoper.org/' target='_blank' class='project'>http://icoper.org/</a> project. iCoper is an eContentPlus action of the EU focused around standards for interoperability for sharing learning materials.
There are many standards in the field of learning: around objects, around syndication and search, and even to help define the key features of portfolios and assessment. iCoper is building a reference model to help to bring these standards together and capture the best practice of our diverse community in the use of these standards - to make better learning! Sadly, there are few standards which help learning institutions (and now learners themselves, perhaps) to create content that is then more easily reused by others, or in different learning context. The work discussed here is focused on capturing the best practices of our community to support Content Development and Reuse (CDfR).
