I am excited to be involved in the LETSI project creating “Web Services for Learning Run-Time Communication“. In my mind, it’s the most useful work going on in the e-learning standards world these days (but I’m sure others will disagree). It’s fun, we have a small group of talented folks rapidly making actual progress towards a straight-forward solution for many problems. Our “phase 1” solution will address several of the limitations of SCORM including:

  • Cross domain scripting difficulties
  • Security of run-time communications
  • Limitations in the delivery of out-of-browser content
  • Inability to support asynchronous communication

One of the things that makes LETSI unique is its emphasis on developing working code, both to vet emerging standards and as a project deliverable. Today we released a very early prototype LMS that supports this new web services based communication system.

If you would like to know more about the work LETSI is doing, get involved with the development effort, or access the prototype to see how it works and maybe develop some test content, please let us know.
