Instructional Management System (IMS) Project Specifications

Educom's Instructional Management Systems Project (discussed in the April 3, 1998 Scout Report) has released these specifications "for how learning materials will flow over the Internet, and for how organizations and individual learners will manage the learning process." The goal of the specifications is to create a "set of open standards for Internet-based education." The specifications (available in Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat [.pdf] formats) have been made available for a 90 day public comment period. After that, they will be submitted to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) to begin the process of establishment as a standard. Note that a prototype is available for testing, as well as downloading (download is a Windows NT application only).
