Learning to Swim

From my recent post on the LETSI blog:

They say that sometimes the best way to learn how to swim is just to dive into the water and see what happens (please don’t actually try this at home). Often, you can analyze a problem and get nowhere, but once you just jump in and start tinkering, the solution becomes apparent. That is the approach we’re taking in the LETSI Architecture working group right now…we are about to jump into the water. The LETSI Architecture Working Group has decided to take on a small project to see how well we can swim. We picked a relatively small and simple problem, but one that will provide a lot of value once solved. If approved, the Architecture Working Group’s first project will be to define a web services interface for the SCORM run-time API….The real goal here is not the the technical solution…The real goal is consensus on the project plan and intended deliverables. This project plan is intended to elicit comment.

Join in the discussion over there, it promises to be lively.
