					                      Outreach Materials - EDXL Suite of Standards
The Emergency Management Adoption Technical Committee (TC) – Collateral and Documents
Subcommittee (SC) is proposing development of a series of datasheets and videos to enhance
awareness of the Emergency Data Exchange Language (EDXL) suite of standards. Currently, a
datasheet is available on the EDXL suite of standards and a video has been published on EDXL-
Common Alerting Protocol (CAP). New outreach materials will be developed to compliment current
documentation as shown below. Items marked with an X are proposed for development.

Materials will highlight how the EDXL suite of standards work together and then focus on individual EDXL
standards (DE, HAVE, and RM). As new EDXL specifications and updates of supporting models (RIM –
Common Types, GSF, CIQ) are published they will be considered by the SC for future video/datasheet

The following approach is recommended for the development of additional outreach materials on the
EDXL suite of standards.

         Identify Format and Length: Datasheets will be coordinated with OASIS staff for publication.
          The final format will be a one page .pdf per datasheet. For videos, additional feedback is required
          to determine if the subcommittee/committee prefers a screen-only approach, a person with slides
          in a backdrop similar to the current CAP video, or another approach. Recommend targeting ten
          minutes or less in length for the initial video.
         Determine Primary Target Audience: In order to address both Technical and non-Technical
          audiences, two datasheets will be developed per standard. The video will be developed for a
          general audience and point technical viewers to additional resources available online, etc.
         Verify Process with Adoption TC/OASIS Staff and outline Schedule: Datasheets will be
          handled as Committee Notes. Additional coordination is required to determine how videos are
          processed with OASIS staff including review processes, naming conventions, etc.
         Prepare a Transcript/Storyboard/Screenplay: A written video transcript and accompanying set
          of slides/demonstrations will be developed and reviewed with the SC and Emergency
          Management Adoption TC as required. The initial materials for the transcript will be derived from
          current documentation on the EDXL suite of standards, EDXL-101 Webinars, and other public


       presentations. The transcript can be developed in parallel with researching available tools for the
       actual video production.
      Identify/Acquire Tools: No additional tools are required for the production of the datasheets. For
       the videos, tools such as Camtasia, Jing, Adobe Premier, Aftereffects, and open source products
       should be researched further. Consider if screen captions should be included.
      Record Video: The actual recording of the video(s) will be performed by one or more members
       of the Subcommittee. This may include captures from the OASIS website, documentation, a live
       demonstration showing cross-system data sharing, message samples, and/or other visuals.
      Review Period: Incorporate comments and produce updated video, pending input from OASIS
      Publication: Coordinate release and announcement of new outreach materials (YouTube,
       OASIS website, Member Section, link to LinkedIn, others)
      Document Process. Prepare a brief document for future reference summarizing the approach,
       any lessons learned, etc.
