Our vision for the future of learning is one of mass customization and, ultimately, personalization. While it might be difficult to imagine such a world, it is perhaps even more difficult to realize that a fundamental enabler of such uniqueness and personalization is standards. But this vision is a fundamental driver for a collection of standards within the IEEE 1484 Learning Technology Standards Committee. The LTSC's scope is to develop standards for learning technology. The first LTSC standard, Learning Object Metadata, was completed in 2002 and several more standards have followed since then.
