Fishing for eLearning Standards in Sestri Levante

At the beginning of May around 500 delegates gathered in Sestri Levante, a quiet fishing town on the beautiful Portofino coast, Northern Italy for the 2004 eLearning Results meeting. Now in its second year, the conference organized by Giunti Interactive Labs brings together industry leaders, academics and government agencies to share case studies and discuss good practice in the field of e-learning standards. The meeting offered a refreshing change from the usual navel-gazing often associated with e-learning standards meetings and instead focussed on success stories of standards adoption. The standards bodies themselves were well represented with delegates from IMS, SCORM, AICC and the UK’s own CETIS in attendance.

Streaming video of all the presentations including the medical education strand are on the web. I wrote a review of the event for the 01.5 edition of the LTSN-01 newsletter, be sure to check it out along with all the other goodies in the newsletter. A 1.2Mb PDF version of the newsletter is here, a higher res version is on the LTSN-01 web site.
