Standards, Reusability, and the Mating Habits of Learning Content

Robby Robson

Digital libraries are supposed to foster reuse of digital content but it is hard to combine content from different sources. We are building prototype software that (1) converts different types of courseware to an XML interchange format based on OpenDocument and other specs/standards (2) enables the content to be disaggregated, recombined, re-styled and endowed with SCORM reporting behaviors and (3) realizes instructional design through the use of the SCORM (or IMS) Simple Sequencing. Will demo, discuss and am happy to talk about the bigger picture of reusability in educational digital libraries and standards if given a longer slot.
