UK learning and skills council report on elearning released

The Distributed and Electronic Learning Group (DELG) has published a final report into the role of the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) in relation to e-learning. The report was commissioned by the LSC.

With regard to e-learning technology, the main recommendations focus on using and promoting standards and ensuring accessibility. The promotion of standards is seen to be most effectively promoted by building on existing work in the field, and by the establishment of a new standards conformity agency. The shape of that agency would be much like it is outlined in our earlier article: it would reside under the office e-Envoy, be part of the Government Interoperability Framework and involve the greatest possible number of agencies.

Accessibility would be promoted by adhering to W3C standards, adopting best practices and by asking JISC's TechDis group to produce clear guidelines.

The full report is available from the LSC website (MS Word only, unfortunately).
