  8. 8. Impact of the absence of Standards• In absence of a standard, there is no way to re-use, inter-operate, access and make durable simulation/SG offerings• No simple way to integrate outcomes to traditional learning management systems• Tensions between creativity and standardization• These act as barriers: – To open-ness – To change – To adoption – To time to market – To sharing of best practices Confidential - Atelier - All Rights Reserved
  9. 9. What will standards imply?• A concerted open community effort• Shared vocabulary, ontology – Peda and Andragogical aspects – Technology – Behaviors & Data interfaces – Analytics and reporting – Metrics and effectiveness• Guidance – Design and Authoring kits – Reference implementations and documentation – Open Integration interfaces• Certification/Assessment & Training Confidential - Atelier - All Rights Reserved
