Abstract

IMS Learning Design (IMS-LD) is a notation system for learning and instruction. It supports the description of learning processes using a set of standardised concepts, including roles, activities, acts, objectives and prerequi-sites. With the availability of such a notation, descriptions of learning processes can be shared, critiqued, modi-fied, rated, compared and evaluated. Moreover, the machine-interpretable nature of the notation means that de-signs can be executed by software to support the dynamic orchestration of multi-learner, multi-role learning processes. This chapter introduces IMS-LD and describes experience with its use, supported by the first genera-tion of tooling. We then combine these experiences with observations on the tools in the light of new develop-ments in e-learning in order to derive a set of requirements for IMS-LD enabled visual design environments.
