A report on the JISC/CETIS Conference on e-Learning Tools, Standards and Systems held in Oxford last November focusing mostly on the E-Learning Framework (ELF). As Scott Wilson summarizes, "the framework is a road map of functions that could be used in planning institutional e-learning systems." Dan Rehak noted, "we still do not have a common language to talk about developing e-learning system models," and that ELF would address this. In the summary slides, Rehak also notes that "Federated repository implementations failed in the past because the technology was immature. The technology is now maturing, but the business and governance issues will kill us." There's a lot in this comprehensive conference summary. Compare this vision with the FLOSSE vision, listed below. There's a lot of overlap - but there are come key differences too.
