General IMS OUNL
IMS Learning Design is a specification used to describe learning scenarios. It allows these scenarios to be presented to learners online, and enables them to be shared between systems.
IMS Learning Design can describe a wide variety of pedagogical models, or approaches to learning, including group work and collaborative learning. It does not define individual pedagogical models; instead it provides a high level language, or meta-model, that can describe many different models. The language describes how people perform activities using resources (including materials and services), and how these three things are coordinated into a learning flow.
