As communications and information technology becomes ubiquitous in the delivery and management of education, the need for interoperability standards has become a high priority. Standards facilitate the description, packaging, sequencing and delivery of educational content, learning activities and learner information, to enable their sharing and reuse, and their compatibility with future technologies. As such, standards are arguably the key critical success factor for enabling technologies in elearning. Development of these standards is an iterative process, requiring testing and feedback from implementers and end users. The UK's CETIS offers a model for educational community engagement with the emerging standards.
