Advancing ADL through Global Collaboration

The Australian Department of Education Science and Training (DEST) and the Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative (ADL) are proud to announce Advancing ADL through Global Collaboration, an international forum on the future of ADL technologies. The event will be held 4-6 October 2005 at the Hilton on the Park in Melbourne, Australia.

The primary purpose of the three-day international forum is to consider strategic directions for the internationalisation of SCORM, CORDRA and relationships with the S1000D performance support community. The forum will also address opportunities for integrating emerging ADL technologies such as gaming, simulation and intelligent tutoring into learning, training and performance support environments.

The three-day event will include opportunities to share intelligence on the deployment of SCORM, CORDRA and S1000D. The event will include leading-edge demonstrations of the use of SCORM, CORDRA and S1000D. Key international experts will present position statements on the future of ADL technologies and requirements for international collaboration.

Workshop and plenary sessions will be used to facilitate discussion on business models for sustaining the further development of SCORM and CORDRA and to clarify the role of key standards-making agencies in assisting with the evolution of these technologies.

In hosting the forum, DEST and ADL hope to achieve a sense of international direction and agreed action regarding the future of ADL technologies.

A full conference programme is currently in development. If you would like more information about the content of the Forum and its objectives please contact Dr Nigel Ward from the Australian ADL Partnership Lab (e-mail: If you would like more information on registering for the event please contact Johanna McKenzie (e-mail:
