Forum .LRN Q&A: Request for Comment and new Upcoming RFP

As part of the Open CourseWare Initiative (OCW), MIT has developed a Common Data Interchange Format for exchanging electronic course materials between systems such as SloanSpace (dotLRN), DSpace, Stellar, and the OCW content management repository. The CDIF specification follows the IMS content packing model. We invite your comments in this forum.

We also be inviting bids to develop the Content Package Generator for SloanSpace/.LRN. The Content Package Generator will extract course content from SloanSpace and create the CDIF package for export to the OCW repository. If you are interested in bidding on this work, please let me know.
