Conceptual Model for Learning Technology

The Conceptual Model for Learning Technology Systems (CM4LTS) provides a conceptual model and classification of data used by learning technology systems. The CM4LTS Working Group is developing a guide to support alignment and harmonization across numerous learning technology standards by documenting topics spanning various learning technology systems. This effort will address the need for a common conceptual model to align Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Learning Technology Standards Committee (LTSC) standards with each other and with other relevant standards. The ADL Initiative’s research on the Total Learning Architecture (TLA) benefits from classifying both the systems and data that would appear in a CM4LTS model.

Date Started: July 2020
