Abstract

We propose a trajectory for learning technology systems that represent a departure from closed, monolithic approaches, typically inherent in the design of these systems, to open, standards-based frameworks that can support diverse pedagogy and accommodate heterogeneous technology. Central to this vision is an architectural approach, illustrated by the Open Knowledge Initiative, which supports the development of sustainable educational tools and technology through enabling commoditization and community.
