International Plugfest 1

The International Relations and Security Network (ISN) will host the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) International Plugfest 1 in Switzerland. International Plugfest 1 will begin with pre-conference workshops on Monday, February 16, 2004. On Tuesday, February 17 a Global e-Learning Summit will be hosted for participating international organizations to brief the Community on the current status of their adoption and implementation of e-Learning standards in general and the SCORM in particular.

Plugfests are a series of events to validate and document progress in meeting the collective requirements for reuse, adaptability, interoperability, cost-effectiveness and global access of the SCORM specifications.

Approximately twice a year, the ADL Co-Laboratory sponsors Plugfests to bring together adopters of the SCORM. Plugfest events provide the ADL Community with the opportunity to synchronize the evolution and convergence of commercial and free authoring tools, learning management systems and Web-based courses with the evolving open-architecture specification.

International Plugfest 1 seeks to bring e-learning organizations and experts together to refine the SCORM and other e-learning strategies, practices, procedures, and standards. International Plugfest 1 differs from other Plugfests with an increased focus on international strategies and contributions, Introduction to new adopters with SCORM e-learning content and Learning Management Systems that implement the SCORM Version 1.2/2004 (Version 1.3) specifications. Interactive opportunities will be offered to attendees to provide input and guidance into learning content development, and a best practices session for developing SCORM conformant learning content.

International Plugfest 1 also informed the e-learning community of the latest work and direction of the ADL Initiative. A Plug N Play area will be provided to allow continuing work on implementing the SCORM specification and sharing issues and lessons learned in implementing SCORM Version 1.2/2004 (Version 1.3).

Date: from 16 February, 2004 to 19 February, 2004
Venue: ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology)
