IEEE 1484.11.1-2004

IEEE Standard for Learning Technology--Data Model for Content Object Communication

This Standard describes a data model to support the interchange of data elements and their values between a content object and a runtime service (RTS). It is based on a current industry practice called "computer managed instruction" (CMI). The work on which this Standard is based was developed to support a client/server environment in which a learning technology system, generically called a learning management system (LMS), delivers digital content, called content objects, to learners. The data model supports learner data and preferences, interactions, objectives, content-object entry, exit, and status information, time parameters, and scores. Second Printing 24 June 2010. Errata incorporated 24 June 2010.

IEEE Standard for Learning Technology - ECMAScript Application Programming Interface for Content to Runtime Services Communication

An ECMAScript application programming interface (API) for content-to-runtime-services communication is described in this standard. It is based on a current industry practice called CMI--computer managed instruction. This API enables the communication of information between content and a runtime service (RTS) typically provided by a learning management system (LMS) via common API services using the ECMAScript language. The purpose of this standard is to build consensus around, resolve ambiguities, and correct defects in existing specifications for an ECMAScript API for exchanging data between learning-related content and an LMS.

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.

No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.


IEEE Standard for Learning Technology Extensible Markup Language (XML) Schema Binding for Data Model for Content Object Communication

This Standard specifies a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Extensible Markup Language (XML) binding of the data model defined in IEEE Std 1484.11.1-2004. The purpose of this Standard is to allow for the creation of IEEE Standard 1484.11.1-2004 data-model instances in XML. This Standard uses the W3C XML Schema definition language as the encoding, which allows for interoperability and the exchange of data-model instances between various systems.
