Abstract

Interoperability that enables the distribution and migration of portfolios as integral wholes between venues requires the ability to describe, encode, and transmit the relationships between assets within the portfolio and its information architecture and visual design in a format that both human and computer audiences can understand. This chapter will discern interoperability challenges fundamental to ePortfolios. It will explain how fundamental issues begin to be addressed by the IMS ePortfolio specification and will consider the challenges that lie ahead as adoption of this specification grows.
