ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 Information Technology for Learning, Education and Training is a standardization subcommittee (SC), which is part of the Joint Technical Committee ISO/IEC JTC 1 of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), that develops and facilitates standards within the field of information technology (IT) for learning, education and training (LET). ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 was established at the November 1999 ISO/IEC JTC 1 plenary in Seoul, Korea. The subcommittee held its first plenary meeting in March 2000 in London, United Kingdom.[1] By the end of 2004, all seven Working Groups of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 had been established. The international secretariat of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 is the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS), located in the Republic of Korea.[2]

Scope and mission[edit]

The scope of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 is “Standardization in the field of information technologies for learning, education, and training (ITLET) to support individuals, groups, or organizations, and to enable interoperability and reusability of resources and tools.”[3][4]

The mission of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 is to:

  • Provide quality ITLET standards to meet stakeholder needs
  • Promote the use of ITLET standards by providing supporting material
  • Provide leadership in ITLET standardization through:
    • The development of a comprehensive set of integrated standards with international and professional consensus
    • Initiating cooperative work with international professional, and standards producing, organizations
    • A framework that:
      • Facilitates the integration of standards developed in other standards producing organizations
      • Minimizes the inconsistencies between related standards, including those developed by other standards producing organizations

Structure[edit]

ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 is made up of seven Working Groups (WGs) and one Advisory Group (AG). Each Working Group carries out specific tasks in standards development within the field of ITLET, where the focus of each working group is described in the group’s terms of reference. The seven Working Groups of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 are:[4][5][6][7]:10

Working Group Working Area Terms of Reference
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36/WG 1 Vocabulary The development of domain-specific LET terminology standards, to be harmonized with the existing ISO/IEC 2382 standard for IT vocabulary
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36/WG 2 Collaborative and Intelligent Technology Standardization in the areas of Collaborative Technology, Intelligent Agent Technology, and Intelligent Systems for ITLET implementations.
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36/WG 3 Participant Information Standardization with respect to information about roles and organizational positions held by participants within an ITLET system and personal information about participants using an ITLET system
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36/WG 4 Management and Delivery of LET IT-related standardization for the management and delivery of learning, education and training and supporting technologies
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36/WG 5 Quality Assurance and Descriptive Frameworks Standardization to provide framework guidelines and support functions for the field of LET, particularly in respect to e-learning
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36/WG 6 Platform, Services, and Specification Integration Standardization to detail how specific technologies may be integrated into an ITLET system, in order to support the development, integration, and use of platforms, services, and specifications where specific LET stakeholder requirements need to be met
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36/WG 7 Culture, Language, and Individual Needs The development of standards that ensure that relevant features and processes of ITLET are adaptable to the requirements of individual users, including the requirements of users with disabilities

ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36 also has the Advisory Group for Business Plan and Communication (AG/BPC) that focuses on implementing and maintaining a formal business planning process for the subcommittee.[7]
