Posted on August 07 2003 by Peter rees Jones in reponse to Course identifier standardisation work started

The CETIS LIPSIG has a direct interest in this initiative, which should also be connected to the current proposals for the development of a UK Unique Learner Number.

Without unique course identifiers it is more difficult to communicate essential curriculum information on which outcomes based learning depends.

There are 'proprietary' unique course identifiers in current UK use (e.g. UCAS) and taxonomies relating to them (e.g. the subject descriptors used by HESA)

By concatenating the detailed institutional module codes with these programme level objects, granular course level descriptors could be created.

The LIPSIG and perhaps the Steering Group for the MLEs for Lifelong Learning, needs to be involved in this discussion.
