Darwin Information Typing Architecture

Commentary by Stephen Downes

I came across this today in a conference report (thanks Bob) and find it well worth passing along. DITA - Darwin Information Typing Architecture - "divides content into small, self-contained topics that can be reused in different deliverables. The extensibility of DITA permits organizations to define specific information structures and still use standard tools to work with them." DITA has a lot in common with learning objects, except for the learning metadata. There's a DITA toolkit that allows you to author DITA content; the site also lists plug-ins for DITA extensions. Also worth a look is the DITA-XML website and the DITA Infocenter.
