The meeting was hosted by Nigel Peet, Director of ICT at South Cheshire College; who provided us with a comfortable meeting room in the College's Conference Centre, and a very tasty lunch.

Presentations and Notes

1. The world of Enterprise (Powerpoint).
Vashti Zarach, Enterprise SIG Coordinator.
A quick overview of the Enterprise SIG, and relevant news and meetings.

2. Enterprise Web Services (Powerpoint).
Scott Wilson, CETIS Assistant Director.
A technical presentation about the forthcoming Enterprise Web Services specification. The Enterprise Specification outlines data formats for transferring data; but does not specify how to transfer data. The Enterprise Web Services Specification aims to set up data transfer standards for student enrolments. An IMS Working Group (including Scott Wilson) are currently working on the new specification, which is due out in January.

3. E-Learning Framework and Tools (Powerpoint).
Tish Roberts, JISC Programme Manager (Joint Information Systems Committee).
This presentation discusses a forthcoming programme from JISC; with the draft aim: "To produce and test the use of a generic technical framework for e-learning systems which will allow the FE/HE community to create MLE architectures to support their e-learning strategies, and develop tools and interfaces where appropriate."
Delegates at the meeting were asked how they would like to participate in the programme. JISC are keen to encourage involvement from the UK e-learning community.

Presentation by Nigel Peet to be added.
