IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC)

The mission of IEEE LTSC working groups is to develop technical Standards, Recommended Practices, and Guides for software components, tools, technologies and design methods that facilitate the development, deployment, maintenance and interoperation of computer implementations of education and training components and systems. LTSC has been chartered by the IEEE Computer Society Standards Activity Board. Many of the standards developed by LTSC will be advanced as international standards by Working Groups that include: General, Learner-related, Content-related, Data and Metadata, and Management Systems and Applications.

Schools Interoperability Framework

The Schools Interoperability Framework (SIF) is an industry initiative to develop an open specification for ensuring that K-12 instructional and administrative software applications work together more effectively. SIF is not a product, but rather an industry-supported technical blueprint for K-12 software that will enable diverse applications to interact and share data seamlessly; now and in the future.

Consortium for School Networking

The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) promotes the use of telecommunications to improve K-12 learning. Members represent state and local education agencies, nonprofits, companies and individuals who share that vision. Their goals are: Leadership Development, Advocacy, Coalition Building, and Emerging Technology.
