             LTSC Current Activities
• LTSC is meeting 3rd week in Feb.
• Focusing on Competency standards (standards
  that enable skills, knowledge, abilities, etc. to be
  interoperably among enterprise systems.)
• Will reaffirm LOM 1484.12.1 and move forward
  with new versions as a new PAR to follow.
• Expect work from Aviation Industry CBT
  Committee and Schools Interoperability
  Framework Association to enter LTSC

        Learning Technology Opportunity
• US Training & Education Industry Stats
   – 2nd largest industry behind Healthcare
   – Almost $1 Trillion per year
   – 90% in pre-K through Higher Ed (formal education)
   – “e-learning” penetration: 2% in education, 20% - 40% in other
     segments. CAGR of 25%
   – Corporate e-learning industry: $6 Billion in 2006 to grow to $25
     Billion in 2010
   – 2% of payroll is spent on training (!)
• THIS SPELLS “OPPORTUNITY”
   – Huge, growing industry with societal benefits
   – On the beginning of the standards curve

                        LETSI Principles
Learning, Education and Training Systems Interoperability (LETSI)
• There are societal, economic and educational benefits to establishing a
   global interoperability framework for technology-enabled learning, education
   and training (LET).
• Technology-enabled LET encompasses many diverse and unique
   communities of practice and must accommodate this diversity and the
   financial realities of the various communities.
• A key to establishing a global LET interoperability framework is to define
   broadly applicable reference models
• The first successful and broadly applicable LET reference model is the
   Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM), which should become
   the first of many anticipated reference models in an evolving, overarching
   LET Interoperability Reference Model.
• It is necessary and desirable for organizations with a material interest in
   LET to collaborate and to coordinate their efforts

               LETSI Current Status
• LETSI is moving forward quickly. It is
  being formed formally under ISTO with
  participation from Korea, a consortium of
  Central / South American states, SIFA, the
  Fraunhofer Institute (Germany), the AICC,
  companies including Adobe Systems and
  Booz Allen, the Masie Consortium and
  others.
