We follow action in a consensus product developed by a joint committee of the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission that should interest educational institutions with an interest in capturing revenue from students outside their home country (which is nearly every educational organization as far as we can see, save for secondary school districts).

ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 Information technology for learning, education and training is charged with standardization in the field of information technologies for learning, education, and training to support individuals, groups, or organizations, and to enable interoperability and reusability of resources and tool. Excluded from this scope are: •standards or technical reports that define educational standards (competencies), cultural conventions, learning objectives, or specific learning content.  Work done by other ISO or IEC TCs, SCs, or WGs with respect to their component, specialty, or domain. Instead, when appropriate, normative or informative references to other standards shall be included. Examples include documents on special topics such as multimedia, web content, cultural adaptation, and security.   The landing page for all ISO/IEC JTC 1 is linked below.

The Korean Agency for Technology and Standards is the Global Secretariat.  It is noteworthy that ANSI does not have an educational organization for the US Technical Advisory Group; a condition that the original University of Michigan standards advocacy enterprise tried to remedy in October 2015 with an online presentation hosted at the Ross School of business; videorecordings linked below:

Demographic changes have created ferocious competition among educational organizations in every nation.  Also, learning technologies are changing on a near continuous basis.  Accordingly, we keep an eye on the work products of this committee and report our findings during our monthly International Standards teleconference.  See our CALENDAR for the next online meeting; open to everyone.
