Data Standards & Standardization

The inability to translate learner data between and among systems emerged as one of the primary concerns of several LDI members in our initial survey. In that survey and in subsequent discussions, establishing and implementing data standards proved to be the consensus solution. To that end, the LDI is working closely with other established groups dedicated to solving the problem. These include:The IEEE Adaptive Instructional Systems Working Group, chaired by LDI Leadership member Andrew Hampton, secretary LDI Leadership member Jody CockroftThe IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee, chaired by LDI member Richard TongThe IEEE Technical Advisory Group on eXperience Application Programming Interface (TAG xAPI)
