Welcome to what started as the online companion to the third CETIS codebash, and is now re-used as the Codebash 4 site.

The site is now used as an ongoing online resource for e-learning technology interoperability testing.It does this by collecting and storing sample instances of standardised e-learning content, metadata and (web) service materials for testing purposes.

The materials are organised as follows:

Content packages

All flavours of IMS Content Packaging, including SCORM, and other aggregation formats such as METS and MPEG21 part 2.

Pure QTI

Those instances of IMS QTI that are not embedded in IMS Content Packages.

Pure Metadata

Unpackaged XML metadata records such as IEEE LOM XML or Dublin Core instances.

Service ports

Any standardised service definitions that expose, discover or transport content such as RSS, WebDAV or SRW.
