IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC)
Creating Learning Technology Standards
The IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC) is chartered by the IEEE Computer Society Standards Activity Board to develop internationally accredited technical standards, recommended practices, and guides for learning technology.
The IEEE LTSC follows an open and transparent, formal standards development process.
The IEEE LTSC coordinates with other organizations, both formally and informally, that produce specifications and standards for learning technologies.
The IEEE LTSC is governed by a Sponsor Executive Committee (SEC) consisting of working group chairs and elected officers.
Membership is required to view Working Group and Study Group documents and post to email lists, and to vote on draft standards and participate in ballot resolution. Individuals interested in participating are encouraged to contact the relevant Working Group and Study Group chairs and explore the Working Groups and Study Groups portion Web site before becoming a member.
Accredited Learning Technology Standards
IEEE LTSC has developed a number of internationally accredited standards.
Published standards include:
These standards are available for purchase from the IEEE.
IEEE LTSC Working Groups and Study Groups
Standards development is done by IEEE LTSC members and invited experts in working groups via a combination of face-to-face meetings, teleconferences, and via asynchronous communications (e.g., email).
Active working groups include:
