JISC to fund standards-compliant tools and services as part of X4L programme

The UK's Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) has issued a call for proposals under its Exchange For Learning (X4L) programme, including development of tools that support specifications such as IMS and SCORM.

The focus of the programme is to exchange and repurpose content between further- and higher-education institutions. Proposals are being sought for projects that enable the UK education sector to make the most of the considerable investment that has taken place in learning materials.

The first strand of the programme concentrates on the assembly, tagging, and processing of learning objects, while the second involves the "development of tools based upon appropriate standards and specifications (e.g. IMS, SCORM) to facilitate the creation of learning pathways and the assembly of learning objects and appropriate metadata."

According to the X4L Circular, all proposed projects "will be expected to be aware of the importance of relevant standards."

For further information, see the X4L Circular on the JISC website.
