IEEE P1484.11.2 - IEEE Draft Standard for Learning Technology - ECMAScript Application Programming Interface for Content to Runtime Services Communication
This Standard describes an ECMAScript application programming interface (API) for content-to-runtime-services communication. 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 ECMA?Script API for ex-changing data between learning-related content and an LMS.
This Standard is a multi-part standard that specifies Learning Object Metadata. This Part specifies a conceptual data schema that defines the structure of a metadata instance for a learning object. For this Standard, a learning object is defined as any entity--digital or non-digital--that may be used for learning, education or training. For this Standard, a metadata instance for a learning object describes relevant characteristics of the learning object to which it applies. Such characteristics may be grouped in general, life cycle, meta-metadata, educational, technical, educational, rights, relation, annotation, and classification categories. The conceptual data schema specified in this part permits linguistic diversity of both learning objects and the metadata instances that describe them. This conceptual data schema specifies the data elements which compose a metadata instance for a learning object. This Part is intended to be referenced by other standards that define the implementation descriptions of the data schema so that a metadata instance for a learning object can be used by a learning technology system to manage, locate, evaluate or exchange learning objects. This Part of this Standard does not define how a learning technology system represents or uses a metadata instance for a learning object.
IEEE 1484.12.3-2020 - IEEE Standard for Learning Technology--Extensible Markup Language (XML) Schema Definition Language Binding for Learning Object Metadata
This Standard defines a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Extensible Markup Language (XML) Schema definition language binding of the learning object metadata (LOM) data model defined in IEEE Std 1484.12.1TM?2002. The purpose of this Standard is to allow the creation of LOM instances in XML, which allows for interoperability and the exchange of LOM XML instances between various systems. This Standard uses the W3C XML Schema definition language to define the syntax and semantics of the XML encodings.
