Dynamic Instructional Content Exchange

Unattributed, IMS, Jan 04, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

From the email: "To address the opportunities presented by the next generation textbook, IMS GLC has formed a Project Group Under Formation Special Interest Group (PUFSIG) on Dynamic Instructional Content Exchange (DICE). The initial purpose of the DICE PUFSIG will be to develop use cases and end-user requirements for a dynamic, digital substitute for the traditional student textbook." Because, of course, there's been no work on digital textbooks, so IMS will have to invent it from scratch. There's no indication of a website; it appears to be part of the Common cartridge initiative, to which I link in the headline, but there's an email address you can contact. Nice communications strategy. Sheesh.
