ICT standards for technology-enabled learning

Education is a pre-requisite to using information and communication technologies (ICTs) but these same technologies can be a tool to facilitate learning processes and education reaching beyond classrooms as we know them. This report surveys technology-enabled learning and emerging technologies, which, if applied in an educational context, can contribute to more efficient and more affordable education and training for all. For a number of years now, standardization bodies have been defining standards and guidelines for ICT-enhanced distance learning scenarios, and their output is taken up in this report with a view to exploring and identifying new applications and directions of this work.​​
